Bikes Make Life Better


As a proud supporter of the organization called People for Bikes, it makes me super happy when I see them doing cool things.  This week they released a video called “Bikes Make Life Better”, and I’m sure that all of you out there would agree with this statement.  If you haven’t seen it yet, be sure to watch this beautiful video they put together….if you’ve already seen it, give it another view.  Yeah, it’s that good.

In the 2:34 that the video plays for, they are able to capture the feeling of what cycling is all about.  Well done, guys.  I invite all of you over to sign the People for Bikes Pledge to help promote bikey goodness.

Bikes definitely Make Life Better.


Enjoy Your Ride

    Love the campaign but how can you produce a bike video with cyclists NOT wearing helmets???  or proper lighting???

      Thanks for your comments.  I sort of was wondering the same thing, but I got so caught up by the beauty and vibe of the video that I totally forgot about it.

     Completely agree with the sentiment of this film. Let’s have more bikes and fewer cars on the roads.

      Thanks for checking it out.  Yeah, those People for Bikes guys sure know what it’s all about don’t they?

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.
