A Day in the Life of a SS


A few weeks back I posted about Leigh Brandt and explained how she has now become a road cyclist.  My friend @bikerly shot back and said that he’d much prefer to see some Fixed Gear eye candy…..so this one’s for him, sort of.  Instead of a bunch of fixie shots, today we have a photo post capturing the day in the life of a Single Speed bike (as shot by Justin Moore).

These are some beautiful pictures and I hope all of you enjoy them.  If so, you can thank @bikerly for putting on the pressure.

Justin Moore is a native of San Antonio, TX and since 2006 has accumulated over 12,000 miles and more than a 1,000 hours of bicycle riding. Justin is a certified League Cycling Instructor who teaches bicycle safety classes that are part of the nationally recognized Smart Cycling program. As an instructor for the League of American Bicyclists, he teaches cyclists how to use their bicycles for fun, transportation and fitness. As a feverish cycling advocate, he frequently attends meetings with city, county and state officials to help promote cycling education and to promote investments in bicycling infrastructure. Justin is an instrument-rated private pilot and has been a professional photographer just over a decade.  For more of Justin’s photos and to read his blog, please visit him at www.bikegurus.com.

    Love the photos.  And, love riding my SS.  Calms my mind to ride something so simple. 🙂

      Simplicity can be so awesome and beautiful, can’t it?  In bikes, and in life.

    Nice Trek Soho S!  I’ve got one in white, and it’s so much fun to ride I find myself grabbing it more often than my (much more expensive) road bike.

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.
