EBikes for those over 60

At this rate will they make it to 70? While looking for info on E bikes I found dozens Facebook pages and social media pages that revolve around Boomers on Ebikes. It’s sounds great, right?

Tuesday in the desert

Tuesday was our little day trip to the desert. We trailered up Shelby and Lucky for the 90 minute (more like 2 hour winding ride from sea level to 4500ft then back to sea level into the desert and Borrego Springs. We started at Anza Borrego State Park. They have open bathrooms 😂. That’s a… Continue reading Tuesday in the desert
