Natures Light Show Over The Boulder Reservoir Art Print
A scenic overlook view from highway 36, of a massive lightning thunderstorm over the Boulder Colorado Reservoir. Fireworks may be banned because of the fire ban, but there is nothing like nature putting on a great light show especially on this evening. This is 6 images stacked that would be equal to a three minute long exposure.

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.

Adventure

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.

Coot Lake

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).

Two months after being filled, 75 tons of sand were delivered to create a beach along the reservoir’s southeast shore. The reservoir’s construction cost was $1,158,027.  Credit and source https://bouldercolorado.gov/parks-rec/reservoir-history-and-facts

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.

SEATS – More padded comfortable bike seats.

STEREO Cell PHONE HEADSET

Bluetooth Stereo Phone headset: Fold-able Bluetooth Headphones, AMORNO Wireless Neckband Sports Headset with Retractable Earbuds, Sweatproof Noise Cancelling Stereo Earphones with Mic (Black) https://amzn.to/2CMJIrG

I have not held a phone to my head in over ten years. I can not talk on the phone without this. Best part is the battery last forever.

WATER BOTTLE HOLDERS

2 Water Bottle Holders – I also got two bottle holders and these seem to hold well and expand for bigger bottles. Love it cause I can bring my water and coffee. https://amzn.to/2Y4ZyFF

MIRROR

Bicycle Mirror -I tried a few and the key is to be long enough to the side so you are not in the view. This works GREAT!  Love it!  – https://amzn.to/2ELorz6

PHONE HOLDER

Cell Phone Mount/Holder for Bike Handlebars (Blue) https://amzn.to/3kVfPXy

Little flimsy but works well. Does have a lifetime guarantee.

Here is another on my list to get. I like having back ups.

CENTER BAG

Top Tube Bag Bicycle Frame Dual Pannier https://amzn.to/3163Dv4

Water Resistant Bike Top Tube Bag Bicycle Frame Dual Panniers with Detachable Phone Bag. Too low on the bike to use for phone in my opinion.

I use this with a solar battery bank below for my GoPro camera batteries. I can charge using the side pockets on the side plugged into the solar power bank charging on top.

CHARGER POWER-BANK

Solar Charger, 20000mAh Solar Power Bankhttps://amzn.to/34BFXB2

This has power to charge your phone 5 times. Great for travel.
