Team #LovingtheBike does #30daysofbiking Winners


#30daysofbiking #LovingtheBike

Last week we wrapped up another fantastic month of riding our bikes every single day as part of the #30daysofbiking event.  This is the third year that we’ve kicked things up a bit over here at Loving the Bike, and added an extra dimension with our points system.

There was a lot of great riding that took place and I loved seeing all the pictures posted on our Facebook Page.  Now it’s time to award some prizes and thank our great sponsors.

Not everyone on Team #LovingtheBike submitted their point totals to us, so we’ve based things on those who gave them to us.  Congratulations to all of you who took part in #30daysofbiking.

Enjoy Your 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.
