Let’s Talk Mountain Bikes


It’s another one of our Let’s Talk features, and my good friend Shawn is in to get you talking about mountain bikes.

Shawn runs the website, www.texasmountainbiketrails.com and in this video he poses an interesting question to all of you….especially if you’re primarily a road cyclist. Oh, and Shawn just happens to be a video graphics master and includes some cool stuff in this one.

You definitely have to check this one out, and then please leave your answer/comment before leaving our website.

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.
