October 2016 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.… Continue reading The Race is On
October 2017 I just wanted to grab breakfast at a local eatery and run a few errands. What happened was I spent the day talking to myself while pedaling.

I’ll explain, why I will not run to catch a bus or train, ever again. Nor will I ever… Continue reading Advocate for better!

But after Saturday’s mega yard cleaning, there wasn’t any enthusiasm left for that. Instead we took Lucky and Shelby shopping. We attached the trailer and off… Continue reading May is Bike Month
Wow! I’m impressed. First off let me just say the staff at the San Diego Rad Bike Store is amazing. We just purchased 2 Rad Minis. I was expecting to pay the full 2022 price. After all it was a new year and the price of everything has gone up. But what the heck, I’ll… Continue reading I did it. I bought a Rad Bike
Our late morning pedal before feasting on Thanksgiving goodies was a little different than we planned.As we traversed the valley the Santa Ana winds really began to picked up.
