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. The stuff I say to myself sometimes is just a kick. Either I’m crazy or I’m really funny. At least I amuse easily. The bulk of… Continue reading What was I thinking?
I normally rant and rave about the bike lanes in Big Bear Lake, California, but not today. This is the letter I wrote to them this morning. Everyone and City council, I was really looking forward to attending Moonridge Monday, but I was detained down the hill. I would have ridden my bike to the… Continue reading They turned the protected bike lane into a street fair? Are they crazy?
I know this is a bike site so let’s all advocate and support the building of safe bike and mobility lanes. But if that’s not your cup of tea here’s a simple cause to get behind. 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!
May is Bike Month, and it’s been a busy bike month.So on May 1st we thought we’d pedal our ebikes to the trolley, and then pedal San Diego’s Embarcadero.

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
Today was Shelby’s first ride out of the garage in a couple of weeks after the Big Bang cracked body incident. Today we pedaled to lunch a simple 5 miles. Shelby seems good as new, maybe even stronger/better than new. I think, we may have found a fairly simple, body repair and crack preventative technique.… Continue reading Shelby is up and running again
I just “pedaled” (not cruised) my normal morning 10 miles on my E-trike/ELF. 80*by 8am. I’m exhausted!Drivers kept honking at me. People, I can’t go any faster there are cars in front of me. I’m the one who’s hot. Why are you people so grumpy in your car with AC.
