Lyle & Carol are Riding!

Sorry to hear about Larry’s Eye, however we are riding tonite. Meet at the Church at 6:30 as we are leaving 6:45 sharp because it is getting dark earlier and it is safer if we are finished while it is still light.

See you in an Hour!

Wednesday Ride and Long weekend stuff

Yea!  Wednesday is here, that means another Great ride. Well except for Larry, He has a severe cold in 1 eye and cannot ride; Listen you can hear him screaming:

“ARRRRRRRGGGGGGGG! Not AGAIN!”

The ride on Monday is still a go
Meet 11 am at Leduc Alliance to Ride into the City have lunch and Ride back.

I just got an Email from Edmonton OutDoor Club they are Hosting an Evening Ride in the River Valley Sunday Night. Check out the website here.

It could be a lot of Fun. Decorate your bike with lights from the Dollar store and ride in the Valley when its Dark!  I may go, any one else interested? Leave note in the comments section.

Have a great Day and Ride!

Calmar Days Parade

We had a great day being involved with the Calmar Parade and Mega Garage Sale. 4 people rode Trikes and I rode my Velo during the parade. We had a booth setup for people to try out the trikes after the parade. During the after noon Several people tried out the trike and we even had a visit from John who is interested in getting his own Velo. He rides a Cat Trike Expedition with a Bionix Electric Assist . Wouter and I tried it out. When the electric motor kicked in my first response was a startled Wo hoo! I can definitely see how an electric assist would be right for a longer commute. It’s a blast!

It was a fun day getting exposure for the Trikes
