Loving the Bike TV: Push Through the Headwind


Whether you’re on or off the bike, there’s going to be days where the headwind it almost too much to take on.  But just like on the bike, we push through and find a tailwind once again.

This episode of Loving the Bike TV is a reminder about how we can use our experience of pushing through a headwind on the bike, for our off the bike encounters as well.

    I fought a 20+ mph headwind on my commute to work this morning. Main difference between my ride and yours is that the temp here was 18°F. 🙂

      Hey Greg……yeah, that’s a big difference. Man, you just need to fly over here to Grenada so we can drink coffee and push through some warm headwind together.

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.
