Charge Up Your Bike Riding Experience at Cape Ann Electric Bikes
GMG Jimmy has been thinking about getting himself a bicycle and when we heard about Cape Ann Electric Bikes, we just had to go see them at 214 Eastern Ave Gloucester ( The Commons). These are bicycles equipped with battery power designed to give the rider an extra boost as needed. And I believe Jim may need an extra boost now and again getting himself from here to there, so it would relieve me a great deal to know he had some extra power at his fingertips. As manager/owner Kathy told us, electric bikes allow you to do what you’ve always done and accommodates the rider’s needs so we can go further together (well, the royal “we” anyhow). Jim was allowed to take a ride, which definitely brought a smile to his face. Rentals are available by the day or weekend. We are giving this serious consideration, so if you are curious I encourage you to stop in and talk to Kathy. Take the ride! It’s a game changer for those of us whose minds are much younger than our bodies are.
#atomicbuffaloturds corn on the cob 🌽 and baked sweet potato on the @Webergrills Ivory kettle last night
Try this- mix sriracha and mayo and slather it on your corn on the cob and cook them offset the coals 450 degrees or so for 35 minutes. Yummmmm!
Discovered a McCormick Rub that I really like. A little sweet, a little heat, nice balance.
