Let’s Talk About Riding the Trainer


It’s been a while since we’ve done a post in our Let’s Talk series which is the opportunity for all of you to build up the content and give your thoughts, opinions, and tips.

This time around we’re discussing the bike trainer and rollers.  Let us know about how you make the most of your time while on them, what you do to make it most effective, how do you like riding on them?  Give us all the good stuff in the comments below.

Here’s a quick video with my trainer talk….listen in for a little voice cameo from our new donkey, Moonlight Poet.

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.
