Tested: RhinoShield CrashGuard iPhone Bumper Case

If you’re out bike riding, trail running, or rock climbing, and you’re carrying a smartphone, you want to protect it. In those situations, it’s a matter of when – not if – the phone will take a tumble! That’s why when a case was being hyped up

Tested: Lifetrak Zoom HRV Monitor

Previously, I was never a huge fan of activity trackers. They simply weren’t good enough for athletes. Sure, they were high-tech devices. But as far as information provided, they were very basic, beginner devices. (I’ll take a Garmin Forerunner thank you very much!) Finally, one of these

Tested: Honey Stinger Organic Energy Waffles

This isn’t just any waffle. It’s a “Stroopwafel” like you find in the Netherlands, but it comes packaged like an energy bar. They have been a long-time tradition in Belgium and the Netherlands, first brought to the world of endurance sports by Honey Stinger. (I remember hearing

Tested: Crotch Guard Skin Care Oil

No, there is certainly no shortage of chamois creams or butt butters, but this is a first for me. It’s a crotch oil! Aptly named, Crotch Guard Skin Care Oil. Part of a line of skin care oils, this one is designed exclusively for cyclists and comes

Tested: Two Wheel Gear Garment Pannier Classic 2.0

As if the physical challenge of bike commuting isn’t enough (using your bike to carry both you and your belongings to work), there is the matter of logistics (what’s the best route? what is today’s weather forecast?). On top of that, what if you have to wear

Tested: Nalgene Draft Soft-Squeeze Water Bottle

I never thought I’d say, “let me grab my Nalgene bottle and head out for a bike ride” – but now I can, because of the recently released Nalgene Draft Water Bottle. The soft-squeeze plastic water bottle is easy to operate with one hand, while riding. It

Tested: Mitscoots Running Socks

While looking up companies with charitable operations one day, I stumbled upon Mitscoots. It might be a funny name, but they rival Bombas (those super comfy socks I reviewed earlier) when it comes to charitable giving. We’re not just talking socks, though. Mitscoots Outfitters makes a range

The Best Keto Recipes for Endurance Athletes (High Fat + Low Carb = No Bonk?)

You’ve probably heard the claimed benefits of a ketogenic diet – burn fat, lose weight, never run out of energy. Pretty much everything you’ve ever wanted! It’s not for everyone, and I’m certainly not advocating that you try it right away. I might not recommend you try

The Polar Bottle. This classic water bottle is one of the first cycling accessories I ever purchased! That was many, years ago, and it’s still around today. So it’s about time I post a review of the Polar Bottle Sport (with Zipstream Cap). Here’s the truth –

Tested: Honey Stinger Protein Chews

What if you could get your protein supplement in a yummy, gummy chewable form? That’s exactly what you get with the Honey Stinger Protein Chews. It’s a neat idea. They are a gummy energy chew with added protein. I never thought protein could be combined with a

Tested: Just Spices Smoothie Boost

Have you ever heard of a seasoning to put in smoothies?! Sounds a bit weird, huh? I mean, maybe turmeric or ginger. If you match the spice to the right ingredients, it could work (orange ginger, for example). But I mean, it seems weird to use a
