Bayous and Bug Guts


My family and I spent this past weekend driving from Austin to Davenport, Florida.  It was a great trip and I was able to venture through some of the Southern States that I’ve never seen before.  The states of Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama seem to be full of “Bayou” This and “Bayou” That…. below is a video explaining the “dreaming” I was doing while cruising along the Bayous.


Once we arrived in Davenport, I learned what happens to a bike after traveling 1100 miles sitting on top of a vehicle.  Check it out.


If you haven’t already read about my  other experiences with my new Thule roof top bike carrier, you can read about the drama right here.

What kinds of stories or tips do you have for people considering the roof top carrier option?

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.
