Chris and Roddy Burgess were on a remote group mountain biking trip, when a friend bonked (totally ran out of energy, had to get carried home).

Chris saw a nutritionist afterwards, who shared a solution: a healthy mix of honey, molasses, and maple syrup. A natural energy gel.

Chris and Roddy started making this for their trips. They shared them with friends, who told their friends, and then bike shop owners, who then wanted to buy the gel!

This side-project, turned side-business, was a great exercise in solving a real life problem, forming a business, and most importantly, working with others, right in the Charlotte biking community.
