The “Sweet”ness continues


So far we’ve had 11 brave souls send in their video submission as entry into our wicked Sweet Leaf Tea contest.  With a prize pack that includes:

  • Cycling Jersey
  • 2 cases of Sweet Leaf Tea
  • A bunch of other Sweet Leaf Tea Schwag (I’ve honestly never used that word before)

…..we had to push it on you just one more time.

This is one hot contest, my friends and if you really can’t muster up what it takes to put a little video together…we’ll take a “Sweet” written submission as well. Send us a video (or story) describing your sweet bike, ride, event…whatever.  For more information, check out the Sweet Leaf Tea Contest Details.

Have a look at what Ken from Bike View put together for his submission:


Submit your video link or story in the comments section below, or e-mail it to [email protected].  Contest closes on Friday at 5:00PM EST with the “Sweet” winner being announced next week.  Good Luck.

Enjoy Your Ride

    Apparently I am not a camera man — at least not on a whim. I will try again if I get a chance…

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.
