Loving the Bike TV: Believe You Can Do It


Belief is possibly the biggest ingredient when it comes to achieving your goals.  As you know, I’m no runner….but it wasn’t until that first dude ran a 4 minute mile that others knew it was possible and were able to do it themselves.  Same thing with climbing Everest.  Once it was done, there was no stopping all the others who’ve decided to do it since.

When it comes to riding a bike, there isn’t anything you cannot do.  Look at guys like Danny MacAskill and Martyn Ashton who are doing things on a bike that weren’t even thought of before.  They believed it was possible, and they made it happen.  How about the speeds and performance of today’s pro cyclists?  They’re at the level they are because they’ve seen what’s possible and believe in themselves to get where they want to go.

This week’s Loving the Bike TV episode is all about personal belief.  You Can Do It.

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.
