Aftershokz Are Rocking My Ride


As you already know, I like to ride to the soundtrack of my music playing each time I’m out cycling.  This is quite the controversial subject and I’m not here to stir things up again.  What I do want to share is information on a fantastic product for any of you who do or are interested in riding with music.


They are called Aftershokz, and I absolutely love them.  Oh, and even though they gave me a pair to try out there was no obligation for me to write about them or promote the product.  They actually gave me a sample through my involvement in the Cycling 360 Podcast, but because I dig them so much I wanted to share the news with all of you.

Okay, so Aftershokz are super unique and cool because they use something called bone conduction technology.  Here’s how they work in their words: “Transducers guide mini vibrations through the cheekbones to the inner ears, delivering sound without plugging or covering the ears”.


Okay, so now let me explain things in my own words.  Because the earbuds sit in front of your ear canal, your ears are open to the environment and you can totally hear what’s going on around you.  But the beauty is that you still get full quality sound and crisp clear music to listen to.

To be honest, I don’t really get how it works….but it does.  You really do need to try these babies out for yourself to get the real feel of how they work and why I think they are the ultimate earphone for cycling with music.

Aftershokz have a few different product options.  I have the Trekz Titanium wireless headphones.  On top of delivering amazing sound quality, they are sweatproof, secure, and like I said…..they magically allow you to hear your surroundings.

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.
