So, what did we do? We rode our bikes on the only Formula 1 and MotoGP racetrack in the country — Austin's Circuit of The Americas!

How to Boost Your Immune System

Foods high in vitamins
Why is everybody stocking up on toilet paper instead of fruits, vegetables and other healthy foods? Why is nobody talking about boosting the immune system?

The reason why the elderly and people with underlying conditions or those who are immunocompromised are more at risk to be seriously affected by illnesses and diseases, is because they don’t have the ability to respond normally to an infection due to an impaired or weakened immune system.

Frisbee® Sonic - Flies Like A Bird, Looks Like A Stingray [Giveaway]


We love playing Frisbee and we have all kinds of Frisbees at home. Big, small, hard, soft, you name it. Now, we've recently received a new kind of Frisbee to try. It looks pretty cool and here’s how Wham-O describes it: “The square-like, sine wave shape mimics many things in nature. The alternating twists and turns of the design resemble a bird in flight as it spins through the air.” It’s true, it does look like a stingray in motion.

Check it out and enter for a chance to win your own Frisbee Sonic.
