#bikeschool: Selva from Hydrapak


We’re posting this information on Hydrapak’s Selva so that our #bikeschool classmates can drop in and locate the correct answer to the question asked in class (Tonight – January 19th 2012)….think of it as a cycling tweet chat scavenger hunt.

For any non-#bikeschoolers reading this, check out what the Selva has to offer and leave a comment if you’d like us to give one away here at Loving the Bike sometime.

Welcome #bikeschool classmates, you’ll find the answer to Question #4 somewhere below.

The Selva is one of Hydrapak’s more popular packs and is designed for stability on even the roughest of terrain.  The 2012 model is even lighter than previous editions with increased ventilation…making it more appealing for endurance athletes.

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.
