Getting ready for a long trip

Posted by Larry Bell on

So, we've decided to explore some of these United States and are planning to do some work camping along the way in my older class c motorhome. I didn't pay very much for it and we're doing some work on it to get it ready ourselves.  We're not taking a car, so we're going to rely on our electric bikes for transportation.  I plan to blog here and post pics and videos during of our experiences, mostly about how we use our e-bikes.

Before you're ready to ride again, charge it up. Your battery will last longer and give better performance throughout its life.

Just enough power assist to help me along without pushing too hard so the pain in my knees went away.  I got a little excercise, fresh air, and a reminder of how cold it's going to get soon here northeast Ohio.  Without my...

Posted by Larry Bell on

I was an avid recreational bike rider from 3 years old on into my 40's. My favorite bike was my trusty Trek with RockShox suspension up front - I can't remember the model number, but I was able to go pretty much anywhere on at bike. It wasn't very expensive, I think I paid $700 for it back around 1995ish. I tried out a bunch of bikes - ones costing less and some that were much more expensive. The Trek just felt perfect for me. I rode it a lot - and hard. It never broke on me and I...
