Lectric Xp eBike
What I love most about my Lectric XP eBike is that I can fold it and put in the back of the 4runner.
Also I like that I don’t have to worry about it either because it is dry and secure inside the SUV.
The weight of the bike is 63 lbs.
Come with me and watch the video of an adventure and ride at Coot Lake plus the Boulder Reservoir and enjoy the scenery.
Boulder Colorado, Boulder county open space.
Walk the dog
This is a great place to take the dog, walk around or bike around.
Dogs are allowed to swim on the east and south lake shores only. Dogs are not allowed on the west side or in any of the wetland areas.
Dogs are only permitted off-leash if they are registered as participants in the Voice and Sight Tag Program.
Lot s of space to explore with scenic views that are out of this world.
We have been having smoke in the air from all the wildfires so the sky has a white haze look and you can not see the top Rocky Mountain Peaks.
Boulder Reservoir History
The Boulder Colorado Reservoir is a multi-use 700-acre open space area for recreation and water-storage. It is owned and managed by the City of Boulder and operated as a water supply by the Northern Colorado Water Conservancy District.
Many recreation activities at the reservoir including boating, swimming, sun bathing, water skiing, fishing, picnicking, walking, running, cycling, horseback riding ( with your own horse) and wildlife viewing.
The city initially bought land for construction of the reservoir from the Axelson family’s dairy farm and began construction on May 1, 1954.
The reservoir construction was completed on Feb. 11, 1955 and began filling with water from the Colorado-Big Thompson Project that April (via what is now the Boulder Feeder Canal).
The Fun part is accessorizing and personalizing your eBike. Here is what I use and recommend.
HEADLIGHT, HORN, TAIL-LIGHT and SOLAR POWER-BANK – LOVE IT!
I found a cool solar rechargeable BRIGHT head light that acts as a battery bank as well. It also comes with a rear light with 4 mode functions. Also has a very loud horn. A must! It has come in very handy so far.
