    Just wanted to thank Darryl for letting me shoot a quick video from Snow Canyon in Southern Utah where I am right now. Sweet red rock and lots of fun riding. Check it out: http://www.youtube.com/user/CyclistBamboo?feature=mhum

    Loving this idea my friend! I’ll put a little something together for sure. Wouldn’t be right for me to get you on camera and then not participate.

    I need some sweet caffeine (and bottlecap advice) … so here’s me on my bike today. I obviously need some sweetening up. (And yes, I have a very old video camera).

    I’mlovingthevideo, Darryl – you are adorable. ;))

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.
