Loving the Bike TV: Do a Charity Ride This Year


I know there are at least some of you debating taking part in one of those group/charity type rides this year.  No need to feel intimidated by it or convince yourself that you’re not ready.

I’m here to tell you to go ahead and just do it.  Have a watch, then proceed to action.

    I always do one, sometimes two, charity rides a year. I am yet to take on a multi-day event though.

    Done! Did the Rosedale Ride last Saturday. May do Red Poppy later this month and Mamma Jamma later this year.

    I’m doing one in Houston this September for a friend who had breast Cancer. Tour de Pink.

    For those considering one of those rides for the first time but are intimidated by a longer distance keep in mind that there are usually rest stops 15-25 miles apart. Rather the looking at the ride as one long ride it helps to think of it it in terms of a series of short rides. Take a little break at each rest stop, refilling water bottles, grabbing a snack, taking advantage of the amenities (i.e. visit the ports-johns). Before you know it your rolling in at the finish.

      Exactly….thanks, Bob. These rides are designed to make it doable and fun for everyone. Taking advantage of the rest stops is a fantastic idea. It’s a great opportunity to catch your breath, get some food, and meet some great people.

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.
