Linda’s e-bike failed to work properly so we are sending it back and have decided to continue our bike rides on new Trek bicycles. Today we rode on the local bike paths and loved the bikes. They are SO MUCH lighter than the e-bikes, easier to handle and actually easy to pedal. Looking forward to getting in shape enough to travel to remote bike paths.

The tires are a good compromise between low rolling resistance and comfort/shock absorbing.

We redid the front yard with Xeriscape. Lots of drip – drought resistant plants.
