Now this is a bike shop!

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!

Just before the fog rolled in

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.

2 flats in 1 week

Last Sunday we rode the new Rose Canyon bike path. It’s really nice, EXCEPT for the first 3/4 mile. It was an old poorly maintained asphalt path with over growth. But after that the path was amazing. We had a great time on our 16 mile pedal that day. But the following day was not… Continue reading 2 flats in 1 week

My morning rides are getting dangerous

It’s been a weird slightly unnerving week. I’m not sure whether it’s pandemic fatigue, political anger or Christmas anxiety, but drivers are very aggressive lately. In the last six days we’ve had three significant bike/car encounters. That’s more than 4 years worth for us. First there was the car that purposely aimed his car at… Continue reading My morning rides are getting dangerous

I almost got killed: The bike and I are fine!

What the heck. Honestly, I said a lot more than that at the time! A driver just tried to kill me. They saw me and purposely swerved and pushed me into the curb. I have a rear view camera, guess who’s going to be checking that video. I even have a loud horn they heard… Continue reading I almost got killed: The bike and I are fine!

Sunrise on Sunrise Highway

We were planning to pedal the Sunrise Highway in San Diego at Sunrise. As we turned the corner to the look out the wind started to whip. As I got out of the truck I could barely stand without bracing myself. There were 15 to 30mph gusts coming off the desert floor 5,500ft below us.… Continue reading Sunrise on Sunrise Highway

Alley Art

The little town I live in, is just outside of San Diego. We have a cute small restaurant area in our 3 block downtown. The restaurants have beautiful outside seating, and lots of it, but they are still on very modified hours due to Covid. But this morning, I was able to grab a few… Continue reading Alley Art

Covid-Lockdowns-Protests-Riots-Curfews

May 2020 As the riots continue just a few miles away, the smoke from the buildings that were set on fire fills my house. I can hear the sirens, I can see the helicopters. The bank where we had a safety deposit box was burnt to the ground. Tonights conversation at home was, “did we… Continue reading Covid-Lockdowns-Protests-Riots-Curfews
