    Offers adults the fun and freedom they remember from childhood bike rides, with a little help on the pedal power.  Exercise is part of a healthy lifestyle, and these bikes are user-friendly for older people.  They have fat tires and an oversize battery.  The fat tires absorb shock and can go in sand, snow or dirt; and they are more stable on uneven surfaces.  The oversize battery means higher peak power, so even uphill is not a struggle; and the lithium ion batteries also mean more miles between charging.  They offer two cruiser styles, a tricycle, and a foldable bike (which you can fold and carry onto the bus). 

  • Slow Down - on the Centennial Trail.  "This is not a trail designed for high speeds.  There are a lot of blind corners and curves, with a lot of potential for a crash.  The trail must be safe for all users:  walkers, runners, in-line skaters, slower bikers, kids learning to ride bikes, people pushing strollers, people with disabilities who use walkers or wheelchairs, and horseback riders.  A common speed limit on state-owned trails is 15 mph.  Bicyclists who violate it may face a fine of up to $136.  (Ranger Diana Dupuis and Parks and Recreation Commission spokesperson Toni Weyman Droscher, "Swift cyclists draw complaints," by Chad Sokol, The Spokesman-Review, August 5, 2016)
