Over the past 11 years I’ve taken JSF members and visitors on virtual tours of everything from my Home Gym, my Bike Torture Chamber, my bike maintenance and repair shop, my backyard pond, my vegetable and herb garden, my home theater and even my pantry. Man, you sure are a bunch of nosy parkers. 😉

Today I’m going to add another article to that list: my supplement and bike equipment shelves, which are located in my home office. On these shelves I keep most of my daily nutritional supplements, my cycling nutrition/supplements and the cycling equipment that I prefer to keep indoors where it’s air-conditioned.

Complete lists with links provided after each picture. Click any image to enlarge. Off we go…

  1. Do you chew the Orbit while riding? I’ve heard some claim that you shouldn’t chew gum while performing vigorous exercise as it can be a choking hazard but I find a stick of Trident keeps my mouth moist and I don’t have to hit my water bottle so often.

    May want to rethink taking fish oil supplements: http://www.webmd.com/prostate-cancer/news/20130710/too-much-fish-oil-might-boost-prostate-cancer-risk-study-says

    • I chew gum when doing easy rides, and sometimes during warm-ups.

      As for the fish oil study, it was one study and highly flawed. Another study found that prostate cancer patients who ate a low-fat diet and took fish oil supplements slowed the progression of their disease and reduced their chances of recurrence.

      … and around we go.

      More debunking of the study you referenced: http://anh-europe.org/news/a-tide-of-evidence-washes-away-flawed-fish-oil-prostate-cancer-study

      This sort of conflicting information is so common it’s barely worth talking about until much more research has been conducted.

      • Yep, it’s tough to know what is solid research and what’s just overblown hype. I did consult with my doctor and he suggested that it might be a good idea to hold off on fish oil supplements while things were still unclear.

        I wasn’t too happy about his answer because I’ve always believed that fish oil boosted my immune system. I never caught any colds/flu while I was taking them. I stopped taking them earlier this year and BAM – caught the flu for the first time in 10 years despite having also got a flu shot.

  2. So many questions!

    What do you take milk thistle for? Do you take it every day?

    When you go out riding, do you take a pack of Gu Gels with you or do you pour a bunch into each flask and take the flasks with you?

    • Hey smash,

      I decided to try MT for its supposed immune boosting effects and liver support. I usually don’t drink more than a couple time per week, but the liver is pretty important so I figured I’d give it go. Everything I’ve read about MT seems positive, and it’s inexpensive.

      The flasks are a holdover from when I tried purchasing my gel in larger sizes (like this Hammer Gel). I didn’t care for the flasks (too bulky, too hard to clean) so I don’t use them anymore. I prefer single serve energy gel packets now, which I just carry in my jersey pocket.

      • Ha! My next question was going to be if you tried Hammer gel and what you thought of it. I tried it for the first time when they handed out free packets during a ride. I liked the flavor (apple cinnamon) and the packet design but it had slightly less calories and salts for what I prefer.
