Loving the Bike TV: Love Where You Live


Do you love where you live?  If not, I’m here to tell you to change it.  Yes, loving where you live is a huge part of Loving Life on and off the Bike.

If you don’t love where you live, there are two option.  1.  Suck it up and make yourself appreciate where you live.  2.  Move.

For me, sucking it up was not an option so I’ve moved myself around to get to where I am totally loving where I live.  Please excuse the shaking video for this week’s Loving the Bike TV….I had just got back from a ride and my hands were shaking.  I’ll explain more about why I have shaky hands in Friday’s post.

    Another video post that I love! I live in Houston, and I LOVE IT, there is a whole lot about it that I could potentially complain about it, but WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY. Focus on the positive, make where you are great. I am glad you have settled in to life in Grenada, I know it was shaky for a little while.

    Hah! I love your options.

    Austin was beautiful today – got into the 70s and the boys and I went canoeing on the lake. Just perfect weather. But, yeah, it’s hit & miss this time of year.

    Thankfully, I love Austin. I grew up here and have been here for 37 of my 43 years on the planet. I’m not sure what it would take for me to move. I’ve been looking to change jobs, but it would mean moving to Irving/DFW and I just don’t know if I want to do that. Guess we’ll see. In the meantime, I AM loving life on and off the bike.

      Great to hear it, Paul. As you know, I really love Austin as well and I find myself talking about how awesome it is all the time. If I were American, we’d likely still be there. You should feel very happy that you’ve lived most of your life in a place that you absolutely Love.

    I’d love to watch the video – but it comes up as ‘private’. No show

      Hey Herb, it’s ready to view now.

    The video is tagged as ‘private’ so we can’t view 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.
