I love cycling.  Although I am more of a road cyclist myself….I love all bikes and totally love to see people riding them.  I crave to make it my only means of transportation.  I blog about all things associated in and around the bike….and you can think of our Loving the Bike site as a place that talks about cycling as a lifestyle.  I believe that everything in life revolves around a bike….and it’s better because of it.  In my opinion, the bike is the coolest commonality found between people and I think that is so awesome.  I am very happy to belong to the cycling blog community….these bloggers rock.

Why am I Loving the Bike?

I am loving the bike because it provides me with a means to keeping my body in good physical condition while enjoying every single minute of it. I love it because of the solitude and meditative state that is brings me to every time I’m on it. I love the connection it gives our family when out on a ride together. I love the craftsmanship and beauty of the design. I love the camaraderie and brotherhood among riders. I love the speed and knowing that I am moving myself solely by my own power. I love the fact that there is no better means of environmentally friendly transportation than the bike. I am simply loving the 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.
