Austin Bicycle Culture in VIDEO: Pedal People


Earlier today we posted about Austin Cycling Culture in Photos, and now we’re back with an incredible video for you to watch called Pedal People.  This film was just released yesterday by Chad Treanor, a local director, photographer, editor, and film making genius.  Here is what Chad has to say about this film:

Pedal People is a short documentary that delves into the lives of five different cyclists from Austin Texas. This film was inspired by why we love riding bikes in all terrain, all weather and all year round. These inspiring stories are told by a BMX rider, cyclocross racer, hardcourt bike polo player, fixed gear freestyle rider and a professional bicycle mechanic.

Even if you’re not from Austin, this one is totally worth sitting down for 15 minutes to watch:


If you’ll be in Austin between December 1st and 4th, you’ll want to be sure to take part in the Austin Bicycle Film Festival….Pedal People will be premiered at this event.

Enjoy Your Ride

      Yeah, there is always so many bicycle related events going on in Austin that it’s tough to keep up with them all.  Let me know if you make it to Austin for the film festival.

    With your two posts on Austin bike culture today, you’ve really got it all covered don’t you?  Great pictures earlier today and this video is utterly amazing.  Thanks for posting all of this and for being a wonderful promoter of Austin.

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.
