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. 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 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!

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.
It was the first day of summer. Not too hot and not too cold. Enjoy this six minutes of scenery and the sites in San Diego Recorded on a dashcam powered by a small cell power charging battery. it’s not fancy but it works great and for the price it’s fantastic. I’ll refine the holder… Continue reading Some days ya just gotta cruise.
