#bikeschool: You Pick the Winner


In last Thursday’s #bikeschool, we had a special question sponsored by our friends from Hydrapak. Anyone who answered Question #4 from the night was entered to win one of Hyrdapak’s brand new 2012 Wolly Mammoth water bottles.  These bottle aren’t even available for purchase yet and these bad boys are different from other insulated water bottles in that they have primaloft insulation – the top tier stuff that keeps you warm in things like sleeping bags, synthetic down jackets, and things like that.  It’s inside the walls of the bottle and is sure to keep your liquid cold.

You Pick the Winner

Here is the question that was asked, and below that we have 20 of the responses from last week.  Yeah, there are a lot of them….but read through them all and help us pick the winner.  Leave a comment for us with the Twitter name of who provided your favorite answer.  If you provided one of these responses, be sure to get all your friends to come over and vote for you.  We’ll announce the winner later today.

Congratulations to @RandyRoubaix who wins a Wooly Mammoth water bottle from Hydrapak.  His reply to last week’s #bikeschool question received the most votes.

    RandyRoubaix’s Unicorn Tears…though he may have plagerized, as I believe @neilroad my own that 🙂

    Unicorn tears are not funny. They are delicious. One more for Randy.

    Unicorn Tears, the secret exlixir

    First of all, I wanted to say that it’s nice to have the chance to help decide the winner.  It is nice to see you guys adding more excitement to #bikeschool.  I heard you talking about it a few weeks ago and it is good to see you coming through on this.  I can’t wait to see what else will happen.

    I would like to vote for the Pickel Juice answer.  Yuch.

    Randy Roubaix – Unicorn Tears…is that some kind of fancy tequilla?

    I thought the Pickel Juice and KimChi answers were very interesting and the discussion that unfolded from the Kimchi answer was hysterical.  What a great class you guys had last week.

    • Darryl is Loving the Bike on November 1, 2011 at 12:13 pm

      Yeah, all those Kimchi tweets had me totally laughing as well.  Now we have #Tacos, #Thongs, #Kimchi, and so many more #bikeshool buzz words going on.

  9. Pamela on November 1, 2011 at 11:53 am

    I like all the responses, but I’ll officially vote for @RandyRoubaix.

  10. Jamie Chandler on November 1, 2011 at 11:53 am

    My favorite was @RandyRobaix . Unicorn’s are so YUMMY!

  12. NotRandyRoubaix on November 1, 2011 at 11:48 am

    unicorn tears…..though Bobby had us in stitches the whole night

    • Darryl is Loving the Bike on November 1, 2011 at 12:12 pm

      I totally agree….Bobby is guaranteed to get people rolling on the floor during #bikeschool.

    RandyRoubaix and Unicorn Tears

  14. Jonathan on November 1, 2011 at 11:43 am

    I like Pickle Juice and Unicorn Tears.  I’ll vote for both.

  15. Lyle on November 1, 2011 at 11:39 am

    I’m voting for Unicorn Tear.  What exactly does that look like in a bottle?

    • Darryl is Loving the Bike on November 1, 2011 at 12:12 pm

      Good question….maybe @RandyRoubaix:twitter can answer that one for us.

  16. UnicornTearDrinker on November 1, 2011 at 11:28 am

    Unicorn Tears

  17. David Lee Roth on November 1, 2011 at 11:25 am

    i’m voting for Unicorn Tears

  18. Aaronthestrong on November 1, 2011 at 10:48 am

    HAHA toss up between @Bdix73 and @RandyRoubaix Unicorn Tears or Kim Chee juice…I think I have to toss this to Kim Chee Juice due to the fact that my stomach is still turning at the thought…

  19. Bongo on November 1, 2011 at 10:35 am

    I like the Dos Equis answer

  20. Stevie Dexter on November 1, 2011 at 9:53 am

    My vote goes to @WPopplll. icky!

  21. Kristi on November 1, 2011 at 8:17 am

    I’m going with Bloody Mary. I just can’t imagine that a Blood Mary in a plastic bottle without the lovely, necessary condiments of a pickle, olives etc.. would be very tasty!

  22. Bob A on November 1, 2011 at 8:14 am

    Best answer (true or not) is @bdix73 for either of his (Dos Equis or kim chee juice).  Best factual answer is @wpoppIII for pickle juice.

  23. dboyd22 on November 1, 2011 at 7:52 am

    I love @bdix73 answer and I love tacos with Dos Equis.

  24. Dan Polley on November 1, 2011 at 7:36 am

    I laughed out loud to @bdix73’s Dos Equis response.

    • Darryl is Loving the Bike on November 1, 2011 at 7:44 am

      I totally agree, Dan.  That Bobby always has me rolling on the floor.

  25. Marty on November 1, 2011 at 7:07 am

    Have to go with the KimChee Juice from @bdix73  – It stirred up a fun condo that school night.

    • Darryl is Loving the Bike on November 1, 2011 at 7:45 am

      Yeah, last week’s KimChi conversation will go down in #bikeschool history for sure.

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.
