Cycling Clothing For the Love of the Bicycle


My favorite line of cycling clothing is Viva la Bicicleta.  No question.  I love their style, I love their mission, and I love their forward way of thinking.  Best of all, it’s a small little company…..the kind I like to support the most.

Viva la Bicicleta Philosophy: Get everyone out on a bike and riding.

Viva la BicicletaViva is all about function, style, and safety…..and the offer a wide variety of on and off the bike clothing.  My personal favorite is the Viva Men’s Hoodie, although I don’t really need the warmth for my cycling in Grenada.  But for any of you cycling into the fall season, this is the perfect choice.  Check out how the back flaps come out of the pockets to provide reflectors for night riding.

Of course their regular t-shirts are great as well.  I like wearing mine, and showing my love for the bike everywhere I go.

Oh, and when you purchase anything from Viva la Bicicleta, they will donate 10% of the purchase to the Please BE KIND to Cyclists Victim Relief Fund.  Nice.


Enjoy Your Ride

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.
