Cruising in Saturday traffic, is way different than commuting during the week. 18 casual miles without a bike lane in sight, is not for the faint of heart. When we first started pedaling, 3 plus years ago, I thought it would be nice to pedal with music. I made a small speaker system for my… Continue reading Traffic
Southern California morning traffic, hmmm. I had this brilliant idea I’ll race my husband to his place of employment. Who will win? The family van and the freeway vs me pedaling my little solar power assist, ELF/bike named Shelby and side streets. The race will cover approximately 8+ miles during the morning rush hour.

Well I probably shouldn’t of done it, since I just had Cochlear Implant surgery 6 days ago. But I pedaled round trip 3.5 just to get out of the house. A simple stop to get a soda and back home has made a world of difference in how I feel. Anyone who says E-assist bikes… Continue reading It’s the little accomplishments in life that can make a huge difference
When the fear of going into the Costco veggie dept is greater than pedaling your ELF in the SoCal traffic and rain to get there, you know it’s really cold inside that giant fridge.
This isn't about biking, but it is a journey and an adventure. I like adventures! So far it’s more like a rollercoaster ride. Two decades ago just 3 months after having baby #2, I stood up and a major bout of vertigo hit me hard. I dropped to the floor. I was holding my three… Continue reading I’m getting a Cochlear Implant “I Can Hear You Now”. Part 1
