The last week has been insanely busy, so I have not even had time for a quick 10 mile ride in the hills.  I did however take my ebike to get lunch and did a recording just for fun. Now for those of you who do not ride electric bikes, (and I’m guessing that is… Read More

I did a ‘maintenance ride’ today and thought I would try out a new iphone app I downloaded last night called TrackThing. I basically turned it on, put it in the small pouch on the back of the bike and took off, ibiking if you will. {UPDATE} Since writing this post I have reviewed a number… Read More
