To Roswell & Amp; Beyond


In an unprecedented break from the norm, today’s post has NOTHING to do with bicycles.  What it does have a lot of is pure, unadulterated AMAZEBALLS! 

Sunday saw Austrian born, Felix Baumgartner break intergalactic records and thrust his daredevil exploits in to the home of millions around the world.  Unless you have been asleep for the last week or been trapped in traffic behind the trundling Endeavour I’m sure you heard about the Red Bull Stratos mission, which sent Felix to a height of around 128,000ft (24 miles) above Earth, only for him to jump off of his capsule and free fall back down.  Oh, and on the way he reached a maximum speed of 833mph (Mach 1.24 if you so please)  and in doing so, broke the sound barrier without mechanical assistance. 


Now I think we can all agree that this guy is pretty badass and he and his team deserve to be celebrated for their achievements.  Without people like that pushing the boundaries of what is possible, where would our species be!?  Take 1% of Mr Baumgartner’s awesomeness, do something special today and spread the word.  Below is a selection of photos and videos straight from the Red Bull Stratos website celebrating the feat.  Enjoy and I hope it inspires you to do something extraordinary.

Don’t just be amazing. Be Felix.

Enjoy Your Ride

    Man, I would love to experience the feeling of standing alone on top of the world. What an amazing experience and I totally got goosebumps when watching this video.

    I love your last line of this post and how you encourage our readers to go out there and do something incredible. Now that is living life to the fullest….on and off the bike.

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.
