Crank Honors 2013: Top Dogs of Cycling Blogs


Top Cycling Blogs 2013 It’s time to determine the top dogs of the cycling blogs once again….and it’s up to you to make the selections. This is the fourth time we’ve held the Crank Honors… for your favorite cycling blogs in the categories of:

  • Road Cycling Blog
  • Commuter Cycling Blog
  • Mountain Bike Blog
  • Lifestyle Cycling Blog
  • Women’s Cycling Blog
  • Bicycle Travel Blog

I want to start off by saying that Loving the Bike simply holds these honors each year and we don’t allow ourselves to be in on the running.  But there are a whole bunch of great cycling blogs out there and all of them are able to be voted for. Feel free to also check out our Crank Listed Directory that includes the World’s Cycling Blogs.

Voting Information:

We have included the top 4  blogs from each category in the polls (based on last years voting), but also have a blank spot for you to add in who you feel is the top cycling blog in each category.  If enough votes come in for a blog that isn’t listed in the poll, we’ll add them in.

  • You can vote once per day for each category, so be sure to come back often and vote your favorite into the top dog spot.
  • Polls are open from right now through June 1, 2013

Let the Voting Begin:

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.
