Team #LovingtheBike and #30daysofbiking 2014


30daysofbiking-LovingtheBikeA few weeks ago, we asked you if Team #LovingtheBike Would Do #30daysofbiking again this year.  I explained how my new cycling projects have taken a lot of time away from me, but would still love it if we once again put our own spin on the #30daysofbiking challenge.

Well, the response was pretty dismal so I didn’t organize anything.  But I saw that @twittyboyd and @Lycra_Loony were discussing this on Facebook, so I thought I better put up a post.

We won’t officially be doing our own challenge this year, but everyone is welcome to post their daily riding photos on the Loving the Bike Facebook Page.  You can also tag @lovingthebike and use #LovingtheBike in any related tweets you send out as well.

You know me, I’m sure we’ll find a prize for anyone who shows us they are worthy by rocking things hardcore during #30daysofbiking 2014.

It all starts tomorrow.  Here’s to 30 days of riding bikes, good times, and community.

If you haven’t pledged to ride every freaking day in April, do it here.

Enjoy Your Ride

    Thanks Darryl. Prizes aren’t necessary. I am sure that most of us take part for the sheer love of it. We all enjoy riding and sharing our pics of where we ride.

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.
