The Eagles and the E Bike

Remember the sunflowers I found last week in Sequim?

Well the reason we made the three hour drive was to look at an E Bike.

‘What’s an E bike?’ I hear you ask. Exactly what I said.

It’s a bike with a battery that gives you a burst of power whenever you want it – perhaps as you are pedaling up a hill or maybe just for the fun of it!Β  Bob thought we’d ride our bikes more if they gave us more oompf than depended on us.

‘Sure,’ I said. (Well, not exactly.Β  It was more like – do we really need them? – they’re so expensive – well, okay if we get used ones.)

So he found one for sale at a good price in Sequim and off we went to see it.

We arrived at the seller’s home and the bike was as advertised. But I was more interested in the cries of two eagles sitting high above us.

So while Bob took the bike for a ride I watched the eagles as they chatted up a storm.

‘Let me see your profiles,’ I said, and they did.

When Bob returned from his test drive he said the bike was more my size so why didn’t I take it for a spin.

I did.

It was a good day.

With sunflowers.

And eagles.

And a new E bike.

  1. Electric bikes are very popular around here with ‘older’ people.
    They take the strain out of daily cycling.
    Worth it for the eagles, anyway. πŸ™‚
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. I have not had the joy of seeing two eagles together though they do live near us. I have been reading about those bikes and wondering if they are worth the money. Keep us posted.

  3. Good luck with the E bike. I’m on the verge of giving my old regular bike away, for various reasons. Bald eagles are such majestic birds. I miss seeing them.

    • Thanks. I think we’ll enjoy the bikes. Will make it easier especially going up hills. And I love seeing eagles too! This pair was above us the whole time we were there. 😊

  4. I’m so excited for you about the new E-bike! I want one to ride the endless hills in my area. And what a treat to see the bald eagle pair! I’ve only ever seen one at a time.

    • The eagles were a real treat, especially as they sat up there for quite a long time, letting me snap some pictures! And yes, we’re looking forward to using the E bikes, as it will open up a lot more places we can ride. πŸ™‚
