10 Tips for Thursday Night #Bikeschool


Tonight is the second edition of the Thursday Night #Bikeschool session on Twitter.  I’ll be playing moderator this week and I’ve chosen to go with a theme….cycling #Goals and #Dreams.

Here’s what you need to know…

  1. Have FUN
  2. Login to your Twitter account from 9-10p EST
  3. Use the hashtag #bikeschool in your tweets
  4. If you are using TweetDeck just click on #bikeschool from any tweet. add a column to follow the discussion
  5. Or follow along using this Twitter Search link
  6. Or this TweetChat link is another option (there are probably more options)
  7. You might want to let people know your tweets will be a little crazy during the hour. Something like:  tweeps, I’m heading to #bikeschool chat so just ignore my crazy tweets the next hour… or better, join in herehttp://bit.ly/9imv1H
  8. The moderator will come with a few questions… Q1, Q2, Q3, etc. If your response begins with Q1, Q2, Q3 it will help us all follow along
  9. Feel free to have side conversations, ask other questions, stir it up and most importantly throw at least a couple heckle tweets towards @egggman and @lovingthebike
  10. Have FUN
Enjoy Your Ride

    Go Bikerly!I expected one of these to be “drink beer while tweeting”.

      Yes, you know Bikerly all too well. Somehow he missed using beer in his tips….but he did mention something about a beer robot on Twitter today, so watch out.

    Yahoo! I’m there. Did you see the case study posted on my blog today? I’m also checking availability of the @beerrobot – can’t wait!

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.
