The Skirack electric bike lending library was super easy to use! I just called the store and a helpful employee set up a reservation for me.

On the day of my reservation, the e-bike was charged up and waiting for me at Skirack's bike shop! The bike (the Specialized Turbo Vado) comes with everything one would need to ride away with including: a lock, helmet, spare tube, battery charger, and panniers. I just had to fill out a waiver and drop the $100 deposit (refunded after successful return), and off I went!

A First Hand Look at Skirack's Electric Bike Lending Program

After trying an electric bike (e-bike) demo for under a minute at the Lake Monsters Bike Me Out to the Ballgame, I knew I would have to give the 3 day demo a shot. I have a 15 mile round trip commute each day and also do lots of local commutes around Burlington. I wanted to test the e-bike on the numerous steep hills and areas where bikes don't have great options.

The reservation process was easy. I simply called Skirack and gave them my info and setup the days to demo. When I arrived I signed some simple paperwork, put down a refundable $100 deposit, got a quick tutorial on the e-bike and was on my way. The bike (which is a Specialized Turbo Vado) comes with pannier bags, repair kit, helmet and locks - you don't need to supply any equipment. It also has built in front and rear lights as well as a mirror. The bike is a little heavy and hard to maneuver through a tight doorway but you don't notice the weight when riding (the Specialized Turbo Vado comes with a “walk mode” to make it easier to push the bike).

It's Not Me, It's You. When To Break Up With Your Running Shoes.

The purpose of exercise is to stress your body in a way that makes it stronger and healthier and gives you a feeling of well being. Whether it’s walking or running on roads or trails or something else, it’s important to pick a shoe that feels good on your feet with the proper fit.

Your running shoes are more than just cool looking fashion items, they are lightweight protective devices for your feet. Your personal experience may vary, but running shoes are generally expected to provide support and cushioning for 300-500 miles, depending on your physique and how you use them. And most of you tend to replace your shoes within six to twelve months.

Once you’ve found the shoes that work best for you, you can just lace them up and go, and go and go! Consistency is the key to long term success, but it’s hard to keep running in the same pair of shoes if it hurts or doesn't feel good after a while. 

So how do you know when it’s time to break up with your trusty kicks? Read the full article for some warning signs.
