“Mom can I go as fast as that Shelby Cobra? My name is Shelby.”No you can’t, but you can go endless miles (as long as I’m pedaling).

Advocate for better!
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
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.

We pedaled Shelter Island, Harbor Island, and the old Naval Training Center which is now Liberty Station a (small)housing, shopping, and nice park area. Then… Continue reading Pedaling San Diego

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
