Well I did it...

or shall I say Rene' did.  Today after a few laughs watching "The Other Guys"  we went bike shopping.  Guess what? While I would have been quite happy with a run of the mill bike,  I am happy to report that I am  the owner of an e-Zip.  
While it is not a Vespa, it will move along at about 15 miles an hour.   Best of all, until I get throttling up and down and the rhythm of shifting gears, pedal power will make it go just fine.  The battery has a 20 mile range if I am using it only to assist on hills rather than using it to tool along so when the weather gets a little less hot I can see myself venturing further afield.  Hmmm, I wonder if I can get a battery operated GPS for the e-Zip.
And yes, I brought a helmet.  Will take it for a spin around the shopping center parking lot in the morning  before it fills up with cars and it gets too hot.  Will  let you know how it went and if I have need of band aids or plaster casts :)

You GO JUANITA! and the helmet is soooo cute with the pink flowers! I think you should mark this by creating a quilt of you on the ezip! That would be so fun!

You are one brave sister! And I'm loving the helmet.

Oh my how brave. I very much admire you. Every once in a while I break my bike out of the garage and peddle up and down the street, but never with power. Have a wonderful time.
