Just recently I bought a used/new/never ridden Terratrike Rover recumbent trike. I wanted something that would fit on trails and paths easier. It’s definitely an entry level trike, but that’s all I need right now. I just want something to cruise and get a cardio workout. Maybe later I’ll add a small 350-500 e-assist system… Continue reading Now this is a bike shop!
Today is the last day of bike trail fun. Tomorrow we go back to the fun routine and our commute in the ELFs. It’s 5 miles of a fairly flat trail around Lake Miramar here in San Diego.

A sweet little pedal along Mission Bay. By the time we packed up the fog was definitely there. Now it’s 18 miles home to the heat.

The product was average, but I can see such potential. Hopefully the new owners can pull off a miracle. I’d love to see it succeed.… Continue reading Is Organic Transit back in business?
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
