    Because the cities there are so old, the streets are very narrow , so people do a lot of their short travels by bicycle instead of taking a car when there is no good place to park.
    Since I can’t balance well enough to ride a bike anymore, Robin bought an E-trike for me and she has it at her house waiting for me when I get there. We have always gone horseback riding together from the time she was a baby; and this time our rides will be with the bikes.

    The E-trike can be pedaled like a bike, and has an assist for pedaling, or you can ride it like a scooter and just use the motor.
    She said she has it charging up now, and then will take it for a test ride.
    Everything is adjustable, so you can set the seat height and slide it forward and backward just like a regular car seat, so it should be much more comfortable than a bicycle seat.

    Thats neat, looks like we went from training wheels to sustaining wheels. I need one of those since we sold our bikes when I did a balancing act under large oak on acorns holding mine up. I knew my bike days were over.
    I bet that place is beautiful in the winter.
