#bikeschool: Tag Lines


We had a great #bikeschool session last week; good attendance, great answers and no injuries. If you couldn’t be with us then you missed a corker as always but you can always catchup with the #bikeschool questions and answers by going back through the Twitter timeline HERE. As the evenings professor I asked for ideas for a new #bikeschool catchphrase.

We hadn’t meant to entice you all in to doing our work for us and assisting with the creative process of running #bikeschool or LovingTheBike.com but with so many great answers we decided it was probably only right that we offer up a prize for all your hard work… So don’t let me ever hear any of you saying The Boss, The Hoserhead and the dancing monkey don’t look after you!

Below are some of the answers from the night that we have picked for you to vote on. There is the possibility for some late entries to make it into the line-up but the closing date for new entries will be Wednesday 1st of February 2012 at Midnight GMT. Have a read of the tweets below and vote on which one you think should become a #bikeschool catchphrase to help spread the love.

Option 1 – @noteon

Option 2 – JuiceLee337

Option 3 – @PinkChickRunner

Option 4 – @twittyboyd

Option 5 – @johntrendler

Option 6 – @jenfairfax

Option 7 – @lizbon


We have a great prize pack for this competition from two of our #bikeschool sponsors GU Energy and RoadID. Up for grabs is a GU Energy Flavor Mix pack and a $35 RoadID gift card which will keep you on the road for longer and safer whilst you do it.

Time to Vote:

To vote all you need to do is leave a comment below and let us know which option you think is the best and most suited to #bikeschool. If you have your own idea that is entered below before the closing date it may be entered into the competition but this will only be after a shortlist has been decided on. Please don’t vote for ideas left in the comment section, only votes for ideas above with OPTION numbers next to them are eligible for the competition. The closing date for votes is Sunday the 5th of February at Midnight GMT and the winner will be announced shortly after that.

Good luck to everyone and thanks again GU Energy and RoadID… let the voting commence…



Enjoy Your Ride

    Option 7 is curiously interesting. But, I’ll have to go with the PC one and vote for option 4. 🙂 – @twittyboyd @lizbon #bikeschool

  3. Mab5161 on January 31, 2012 at 10:35 pm

    Option #4
    Bikeschool unites all of us around the world!

  4. Pinkchick on January 31, 2012 at 10:11 pm

    Of course I’ll vote for my option #3. However, I like my last minute tweet “Ride by Tweets.” suggestion. oh well. (pinkchick)

  5. Blancamdelvalle on January 31, 2012 at 9:38 pm

    I vote for Option 4

  6. Bob Burpee on January 31, 2012 at 8:04 pm

    Option #4

  7. Lizbon on January 31, 2012 at 7:24 pm

    It’s an honor to be nominated. I’d like to thank the academy, and then vote for somebody else. I vote for Option 6. All About the Bike. Says it all.

  8. Dan Polley on January 31, 2012 at 4:47 pm

    Option 2

  9. Roger B on January 31, 2012 at 4:39 pm

    I choose #5.

  10. Russ Mullens on January 31, 2012 at 3:20 pm

    yep #4  … but if bikeschool doesn’t have a rickshaw Q? soon it will surely be banned in china 

  11. Jackie on January 31, 2012 at 3:12 pm

    There are some great choices, but I’ll go with Option #3.

  12. Olivepeople on January 31, 2012 at 3:07 pm

    Option 2

  13. Katie on January 31, 2012 at 11:07 am

    I like #4 – but I also like #3!  It’s hard to compete with tacos & beer…

  14. PedalmanTO on January 31, 2012 at 11:01 am

    I must say that Option 4 resonates with me.

  15. John Trendler on January 31, 2012 at 10:58 am

    Option 5 – indubitably

  16. Joel Phillips on January 31, 2012 at 10:43 am

    I missed last week, what a bummer.  I love these activities…

    I actually like Option 7.

    I would have answered – Homework is Recess

  17. rorowe on January 31, 2012 at 10:03 am

    I’m going with the consensus (so far), voting for #4. 
    I love #1, too, though…

  18. bobridesabike on January 31, 2012 at 9:34 am

    Option #4

  19. Jennifer Knecht on January 31, 2012 at 9:24 am

  20. Giarcatwood on January 31, 2012 at 9:07 am

    I vote for option # 4

  21. Mark Beaconsfield on January 31, 2012 at 8:10 am

    This vote is from Kayla. “I vote for option 4. If I had a second choice it would be option 5”

  22. Victor Jimenez on January 31, 2012 at 8:05 am

    For the love of the bike

    • Pam on January 31, 2012 at 3:13 pm

      I don’t think we were supossed to vote for new entries, but I like this one.

  23. Aztridalvillar on January 31, 2012 at 8:01 am

    Option #4

  24. Aaronthestrong on January 31, 2012 at 7:44 am

    I vote option 4 FTW. I think it’s a great description of exactly what happens!

  25. Julesmpg on January 31, 2012 at 7:38 am

    Option 4

  26. Mark Beaconsfield on January 31, 2012 at 7:29 am

    I love the fun of option 3. But my vote has to go to @twittyboyd with option 4, World cyclists unite. After all, that is what #bikeschool has done for many of us. There were so many great and funny answers to that question.

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.
