Life Happens While You’re Making Other Plans


In my opinion, this Lennon quote is the simplest and most accurate depiction of life ever put down in words.

John-Lennon-FinalYeah, we’re all so busy.  We all have a bunch of things on our mind and dreams we wish to fulfill…..but along the way life is happening each and every day.

This is not a negative quote in my opinion, but an eye opener to the fact that our days are meant to be filled with the things we love.  To not put things off until tomorrow.  To live in the moment and enjoy every second of it.

Because, at the end of the day….that day is your life.

So you love cycling, huh?  Celebrate it and make your ride a priority in your life.  Surround yourself with bikey things and bikey people.

Now I know you love your Family.  Spend valuable moments together each day.  Don’t let your “I’m busy” or “I have too much to do” get in the way of those most important to you.

Days become months.  Months become years.  All of a sudden, life isn’t just happening…’s happened.

Do it Now.  #MakeitHappen.


Enjoy Your Ride

    What I respect most about you Darryl is that you get this. Your kids and the people around you benefit from this spirit.

    I absolutely agree with John Lennon’s statement and your comments. Turn around and you may find that you are look at the sunset instead of the noon time sun.

Sugar Alternatives for Energy and Hydration

Question: I am using the homebrew sugar formulations (sometimes added to green tea).  I am also trying to wean myself off 1/2 dose adrenalean “lip tonic delivery system” (biorhythm brand- caffeine, hoodia g, synephrine, yohimbe) capsule for energy.

My question is other than juice, can you suggest modifications in lieu of table sugar for energy and hydration.


Both raw/organic honey or agave can work great in the homebrew (substitute in the same quantities for the sugar, or to taste), but you do have to shake well in order to make sure they don’t settle out.  Have you tried either of these?  Also, make sure to use at least the minimum amount of salt recommended in the homebrew as the temps rise, you need the sodium replacement if you’re sweating.
