Loving the Bike TV: Building Self Esteem 3


This is the third episode in our building self esteem series.  This time around I talk about one technique that is often suggested, but I just don’t find that it’s suited to me.  But I bring up another suggestion that I think all of you will easily be able to incorporate into your life.

Let’s keep on getting stronger, on and off the bike.  Build up that self esteem, and keep moving forward.

    True that! I just listened to your Cycling360 podcast on becoming a faster rider and climber. Victor’s advice on just incorporating a few intervals into your training to pay off in big dividends seems so easy. But I hate calling it training because I want to remember that I’m out to have fun on the bike rather than train for something all the time. Nevertheless, I think I’ll try that. I also just listened to an NPR fresh air podcast where the interviewee said that the best way to keep your brain in shape and healthy is not all the brain-training games that you see online but rather to get in shape and do exercise regularly. I guess all this is telling me that I need to get my butt back on the bike. Thanks for the boost!

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.
