Our new non E-trikes

Here’s my 2cents worth of nothing. For just over 4 years we’ve had our e trike ELFs. While they are big and dorky, I love them. I commute 10 miles every morning in it.

Can you see me?

Sometimes I think pedaling at night is easier and safer than during the day. During the day, I can’t assume they see me or my big rolling orange traffic cone on wheels. You would think they’d see me, but many times they are on the phone, and aren’t paying attention. In the last 3 months… Continue reading Can you see me?

I almost got killed: The bike and I are fine!

What the heck. Honestly, I said a lot more than that at the time! A driver just tried to kill me. They saw me and purposely swerved and pushed me into the curb. I have a rear view camera, guess who’s going to be checking that video. I even have a loud horn they heard… Continue reading I almost got killed: The bike and I are fine!
