#Austin: Cycling Party Celebration


If you’ll be in Austin next Saturday, October 20th please join us at Southwest Cyclesport for an afternoon of bicycle celebration.  RSVP on Facebook.

My online cycling buddy Shawn from Texas Mountainbike Trails is helping to put on this event and he’s totally ready to party as well.

So what will go on during the event?  The main purpose is to celebrate cycling and get a bunch of great people together to party it up.

It also serves as one last get together for any of our Loving the Bike friends who’d like to say goodbye before my Family and I take off for the Caribbean.  We love the city of Austin and everything about it, and it’s sure to be a bittersweet send-off.

The Ride: What’s a cycling party without a ride, right?  We haven’t decided yet if there will be a ride starting and ending from The 263, or if we’ll have a ride that originates from downtown.  I’m open to ideas and suggestions.  Seeing as The 263 is not a centralized Austin location, it might make sense to meet up somewhere downtown and take a nice scenic route to Cuernavaca.  Then following the party, the ride will head back.

Sponsors: We have some great sponsors involved with this event and there will be a bunch of free product and giveaways.  There will be tons of free Clif Bar product given out, Hydrapak water bottles, Injinji cycling socks….and Dennis from The 263 said he’ll be getting some goodies from his beer suppliers and many others as well.  Southwest Cycle Sport is also a sponsor and will be on hand as well.


  • Date – Saturday, October 20th 2012
  • Time – 2:00PM to 4:00PM
  • Location – The 263 (1705 N Cuernavaca Drive, Austin Texas)

It just happens to be Livestrong weekend, so there will be a lot of our cycling friends coming into town…..so be sure to add this party to your weekend agenda.

Here’s a map and location for Southwest Cycle Sport:

11701 Bee Cave Road #110, Austin, TX

Enjoy Your Ride

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.
