Life Without You


What would life be like without the bike? Pretty hard to imagine now isn’t it? I’ve loved the bike for a very long time, but it wasn’t until recently that I formed that heartfelt emotion with it, and the knowing of just how important bikes really are. I could go on and on about all the different uses and reasonings for why the bike is one of the greatest inventions of all time, but for today, I’m just going to let this clip do the talking.

Thank you Ernest Michaux and Thomas Spudds, you’ve made a lot of lives much happier.

All that I’m after is a life full of laughter
As long as I’m laughin’ with you
I’m thinkin’ that all that still matters is love ever after
After the life we’ve been through
‘Cause I know there’s no life after you

– Daughtry must have been singing about his bike in this song (“Life After You”)

Enjoy Your Ride

    As someone who loves riding but has not yet formed an emotional attachment to his bike, I say…eewww

    Nice video. I miss the ocean so much. I really like how there is no wind in that video. It seems like it’s monsoon season here in Texas except without the rain.

      Hi Bryan….yes it was very calm that morning. Looking at it again it almost makes me feel like I’m standing by a lake instead of an ocean. I’m missing the ocean as well and looking to be close to it again very soon.

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.
