B ike Barn's good friend and fellow cyclist Ellen Yarrell took off for an eBike Experience during Bike Around the Bay.

Ellen is a very experienced Houston cyclist who participates in many local rides and enjoys cycling vacations. This year for Bike Around the Bay she was looking for a new experience...we offered to help her with an eBike for the weekend.

She rode Day 1 at 18mph, above her normal pace and rode into a crushing headwind on Day 2 with a smile on her face. It was an extremely successful experience, check out her story... in her own words.

Don't let the change in time change your favorite ride! Light technology has improved greatly over the last few years. You can find very bright, long lasting, rechargeable lights that will enable you to keep riding with the shorter days.

Check out our selection of lights and make sure you don't get stuck once the sun sets. If you don't have lights or your current lights are over 3 years old, you need to check out our selection. New rechargeable LED light technology helps you be visible in daylight or dark. Be seen on your next ride!
