Rethinking the vacation

What started out as a mini vacation changed instantly. Just 2 weeks before our real road trip traveling vacation, our faithful car died . With our ELF recumbent bike nicely strapped into our trailer we were off to the mountains when the engine blew in our little old van. Some days, it just pays to… Continue reading Rethinking the vacation

‘An e-bike changed my life’

By Kate ScotterBBC News Cycling is just a hobby to many, but for others the battery power of an e-bike has transformed their lives - enabling them to cycle when they otherwise couldn't, find new career paths and improve their mental health.

Traffic

Cruising in Saturday traffic, is way different than commuting during the week. 18 casual miles without a bike lane in sight, is not for the faint of heart. When we first started pedaling, 3 plus years ago, I thought it would be nice to pedal with music. I made a small speaker system for my… Continue reading Traffic

Let’s Race

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. Well, normally… Continue reading Let’s Race

Motherhood/Fatherhood vs the Cochlear Implant - It’s not going to be easy, but you kinda have to plan for the end results. I love my… Continue reading Life without hearing

It’s a lazy man camping trip

Well this is going to be interesting. After work we're pedaling 15 miles, probably in the dark and stopping at Costco for a hotdog. Then we'll pedal a little further to the campground. We've only got the medium sized tent, because we can’t find the smaller one. I have a feeling it’s with one of… Continue reading It’s a lazy man camping trip

I love my ELF “Shelby” but in the rain, I wish, I had the PEBLs windshield wiper.

Living in California we don't think about rain much. But today and all this year so far I've been wanting a windshield wiper for my crazy recumbent bike. I pedal an ELF by Organic Transit. It's open and fun. But with the nasty weather we've been having I built side shields for it. The clear… Continue reading I love my ELF “Shelby” but in the rain, I wish, I had the PEBLs windshield wiper.
