We are hoping we will do better this year but no promises … lol  All I can say is I love riding with Penny the doxie, Louis, our friends, being outdoors and that’s our first priority.  Blogging about…

Just Around the Bend with Ben Jones

This blog is way overdue and I am so sorry for not documenting like I thought we would. We have been riding often with lots of our triking friends. I think we might better serve everyone if we just include a video on each blog. (I have great intentions) Today, I think I will add unedited video of our recent trip to TerraTrike RiderFest with Ben Jones, owner of Dogwood Junction Bikes and Trikes. There will be a few more…

Triking on the Razorback Trails

This is How We Roll @

“This is how we roll” has been true for almost a year and half.  A lot has happened during this time related to triking and I have not written enough about what we have done. I have upgraded my trike with the Bionx electric assist.  This has made a 25 mile ride through the hilly countryside of Northwest Arkansas a piece of cake -for me. Louis gets a great work out and he doesn’t have to wait around anymore for me…

A Penny Thought

“Diva Doxie” Penny … Goes Triking on Her Terms

Penny is one confused “Doxie”!  Do I Like Triking or Not? Woof … Most days morning or evening, Mom and Dad get ready to go on those 3 wheel things, I think they call it recumbent trikes. Every time I hear the door open to the garage, I quickly crawl out from under my blanket and out of my cozy and warm bed rushing to the door. I sniff my way to those funny looking trikes and sniff all the way to…
