Cleaning Your Bike the Right Way


Properly Washing Your Road BikeHow often do you wash up your bike?  Yeah, it’s one of those necessary things that comes along with putting up the miles and time in the saddle.  But you want to make sure that you make the most of your efforts and properly clean and maintain your road bike.

Doing a basic clean which includes washing the frame and tires is a must every few rides.  Washing and cleaning the chain should be done about every two weeks, and finishing up the job with a nice lube.

Pretty simple stuff….right?  Well, my Cycling 360 buddy has some important bicycle washing tips to make sure you aren’t damaging your bike in the process.

Have a listen to Victor’s quick tip on road bike washing, and then get out there and let the suds fly.

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.
