A Lot Has Happened in 3 Years…on and off the Bike


Loving the bike CelebrationCan you believe that Loving the Bike is heading into its third year of cycling blogging?  Yep, it was back on February 6th 2010 that we launched our cycling lifestyle website and the world has been a better place ever since.  Okay, well I’m not sure about that….but it sure has done a lot of my life both on and off the bike.

Over the past three years I’ve found myself getting more and more immersed in cycling related projects and I am totally loving it.  Loving the Bike has helped me branch out into other cycling related initiates such as Crank Listed, #bikeschool, Cycling 360 Podcast, and now my bicycle cafe.

But along with all that, it’s enabled me to meet and get to know a whole lot of incredible bike people all over the world and has allowed me to ride my bike in some pretty awesome places.  A great big thank you to anyone and everyone who’s helped make all this happen.

Celebration is a good thing, and today I invite you to join in and celebrate our Anniversary/Birthday and all the good things that cycling brings to our lives.

Loving the Bike would not be where it is today if it wasn’t for Kelli, Stevie, Aaron, Myron….and of course, all our amazing friends and followers.  To all of you, I say a great big Thank You.

Here’s a little Birthday video from me to all of you:

Sugar Alternatives for Energy and Hydration

Question: I am using the homebrew sugar formulations (sometimes added to green tea).  I am also trying to wean myself off 1/2 dose adrenalean “lip tonic delivery system” (biorhythm brand- caffeine, hoodia g, synephrine, yohimbe) capsule for energy.

My question is other than juice, can you suggest modifications in lieu of table sugar for energy and hydration.


Both raw/organic honey or agave can work great in the homebrew (substitute in the same quantities for the sugar, or to taste), but you do have to shake well in order to make sure they don’t settle out.  Have you tried either of these?  Also, make sure to use at least the minimum amount of salt recommended in the homebrew as the temps rise, you need the sodium replacement if you’re sweating.
