Loving the Bike TV: The Power of Water


One of the essentials of loving life on and off the bike is to appreciate the power of water.  Hydration from water while on the bike is a vital necessity for all cyclists…..and I strongly feel that the healing power of water (especially ocean water) is incredibly valuable for life off the bike.

Please don’t hate on me as I film this episode of Loving the Bike TV from the shore of Grand Anse Beach here in Grenada.  Water….one of the keys to Loving Life on and off the Bike.

    I completely agree with the healing power of the ocean. I used to do a lot of ocean swimming and I have no doubt that it helped me tremendously with my sinus, which are now a constant problem.
    And never forget how lucky you are to be filming that piece on the beach where you are. Life is good.

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.
