20 mile ride today

We went to cut firewood today ended with almost a full cord.
After that I went  for a ride today and ended up on a 20 mile ride,
It started out nice and sunny a bout 63 degrees, and when I got home it was dark and 53 degrees cold.
I really need to start a bit earlier in my rides.

Tomorrow after Sarah and I get a load of firewood,I am planing on a bike ride to the repeat sports store to look at their Framed BackPacks. I seen one there the other day for 10.00 bucks I should of bought it but I didnt have 10 bucks, I really hope its there,

Well off to bed....Peace and keep on pedaling

Finally Done for now



I finally have all my recumbents all fixed and ready again to hit the road.

The Sun EZ Sport is fully Electric now with the new thumb throttle and battery meter, this is mainly for my wife and mom when we go riding to just help them out a bit..This way I can still get my 10-15 mile rides in with them....

My Trike is all good to go, made the rack a bit longer all the lights work, Re-ran the chain with pulleys instead of PVC pipe.. added a double bottle holder behind my head..My trike seems to ride pretty good, and smooth

The Burley Koosch is all done too...has new seat that I made and its pretty comfy, added a new back bike rack that I built and put my roll up Pannier bagson, alls it needs now is  lights and speedometer. This bike cruises right along pretty smooth ride..


I am thinking about turning my trike into a Velomoble and like to add generatgor lights to the Sun EZ sport and Burley Koosch

Bikes all fixed

Well the other day my 12 yr old Brooke crashed my electric recumbent Sun EZ Sport and in the crash the throttle was broken, I ordered a new one but a thumb throttle this time, I just recieved it in the mail today and its all back together, Runs great.
Glad my baby is ok....I can always fix my bikes..

Now on to my trike, its all back togather and now building a new back rack a little longer for both my pannier bags.

The Burley recumbent  has had a bad seat and now i finally built a awesome seat putting it on tomorrow and going to hit the town tomorrow for a nice ride..

I will post pics later maybe tonight...heading back out to work on the trike rack.

New Battery

I recieved my new battery by FedX yesterday. I pluged it in and now waiting for it to charge so I can road test it, The problem is its a little nipply and rainy Out side right now.. It maybe a few days untill can actually do a full run on both batteries. I am going to do my normal 12 mile ride and see how they handle the 2 big hills I have to climb..

The batteries and motor added about 40 more lbs to my trike, now it may weigh about 60 plus pounds. which is alot of weight but we'll see how she does soon..
