Nutrition Review

I also started reviewing the GU Energy Sample pack this week on my Saturday Morning ride, this ride I took the Jet Blackberry and Mint Chocolate Gels. I hit the Jet Blackberry about 25 minutes into the ride with a nice water chaser. Taste was great with a nice kick of caffeine a couple of minutes later, two thumbs up and a twist! Next at about the hour mark I hit the Mint Chocolate, also another tasty treat, I approve of both and would buy again and recommend to anyone looking for performance energy products.

After my ride I had a Zipvit Sports Protein Recovery bar ZV9 - Protein Bars, Chocolate Coated Peanut Butter to help my bounce back, decent flavor but it seems a little dry. Performance wise though I feel it did help me regain my legs faster.

Hincapie Jersey Review

Last week I received my first Hincapie Cycling Jersey, an Amgen Tour of California blue "Most Courageous Rider Jersey 2009". The fit and feel is great, but glad I ordered the large. So far I have made one 32 mile ride and have just gotten it out of the wash with great results. I should be able to put ride number two on Wednesday and will update then. Also, photos will follow with the next update of the wear and feel.
Well, it is Memorial Day 2010 and I have decided to enter the world of blogging. I will try and cover things that catch my interest along with documenting my world with a flow of photos rambling and the occasional diatribe that will hopefully keep your interest. Some of the subjects I will try and cover are my cycling experiences, photography, and flying along with whatever else catches my fancy...
