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. But after Saturday’s mega yard cleaning, there wasn’t any enthusiasm left for that. Instead we took Lucky and Shelby shopping. We attached the trailer and off… Continue reading May is Bike Month

Summer heat!

I just “pedaled” (not cruised) my normal morning 10 miles on my E-trike/ELF. 80*by 8am. I’m exhausted!Drivers kept honking at me. People, I can’t go any faster there are cars in front of me. I’m the one who’s hot. Why are you people so grumpy in your car with AC.

Recumbent bike helped with Sciatica recovery

After reading this article I had to repost it. This is so me right now! I can barely stand at times, but I can pedal for hours with no pain. I’ve always had a touchy back since a car accident in my late 20’s. So back pain was no new thing to me. But sciatica… Continue reading Recumbent bike helped with Sciatica recovery

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!

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
