Life off the Bike Podcast Episode 1 Raw and Familiar


Yes, the rumours are true. I’ve started a new podcast, and it falls nicely in line with everything I’ve ever talked about here on Loving the Bike.

Life off the Bike is the name of the new podcast and in each episode I bring on a guest to discuss life and how cycling has inspired or changed their life for the better. Although cycling is the commonality, Life off the Bike is an inspirational podcast about life and living it to the fullest.

There’s no shortage of podcasts and other resources out there telling people how to increase their cadence, be a better climber, or hydrate during a ride. But I’ve been told that cyclists and even non-cyclists want to hear stories about other people just like them. Hearing about how in some way their life was changed in a positive way, by way of the bike. Some people may have become racers, bikepackers or maybe just enthusiasts. But all were changed by the bike.

It’s only fitting that my old Cycling360 Podcast co-host, Victor Jimenez be the first guest on Life off the Bike.  Darryl and Victor had a very successful run with their number 1 ranked cycling podcast, Cycling 360.  In this first episode, Victor talks about how cycling has provided his a dream life, and even how cycling helped him find his wife and life long partner.

    I really enjoyed the Cycling 360 Podcast and your blog post that you have written after the 360 podcast came to an end. Thanks for all of your efforts!

    I can’t find the podcast on my Pocketcast App. I can usually add it manually if I have the RSS feed URL but I can’t seem to find it. I can’t wait to hear it!

      Hi Chris, thanks for your great comments. This podcast was done through Anchor and they distribute to Pocketcast but it might take a few days for that to happen. It’s already available on several other platforms and should be there soon.

          Bummer, the podcast still hasn’t arrived in Pocketcast yet. I’ll keep looking for it.

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.
