Loving the Bike TV: Insignificant Problems


If you’re anything like me, you find yourself getting way too tied up with insignificant problems and things.  I’m always stressing my mind or getting frustrated over the small stuff.

In this week’s episode of Loving the Bike TV, I talk about what can be done to remind yourself just how insignificant many of these problems actually are.

Another tip that will hopefully help us all love life….on and off the bike.

    Yeah, Darryl, this is a tough one for me. Sweating the Small Stuff is something I’m really good at and struggle not to do, but rarely succeed. Often, a bike ride or some yard work helps clear my head, but day-to-day I have to pick my battles and try hard not to try to control everything.

      You sound a lot like me, Paul….I guess that’s why we’re connected. Yeah, that video really helped me realize that if I spend more time looking out into the vastness of the world….my own personal world and problems seem very small.

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.
