New Cupholder Options

I walked through the bicycle department at Walmart this morning and found new cupholders available. I think the manufacturers finally realized we like to use insulated cups or bottles, not those cheap plastic ones previously available. One had an adjustable width and the one I purchased is large and has plastic pieces inside to grip the bottle, no matter what the size. A large insulated Tevis bottle will fit. As a bonus, it also has hardware to attach it to the regular handlebar. And, it also came with a bell which I never had on my bike. My method of notifying cars I was behind them was to scream. This might work better!ifwm9jk0w2i3.jpg

  • I have a mini air horn than I haven’t used in the boat. I should carry it to scare off these two kids who zigzag in front of our trikes on the Berry Junction Trail. I’ll record them doing this and send it to News 8. Not the air horn part.
  • Kids weren’t out tonight. Phone was playing James Taylor thru a blue tooth speaker behind me the whole 14.47 miles. Boy does that make time fly by. Listening to music instead of thinking of the next hill.
  • I also play music thru a Bluetooth speaker from a playlist on my phone . I have over 100 rock and roll songs on my list. So I can ride as long as I want and never repeat a tune. It was a gift from my daughter. Pay back for the bike radio i bought her when she was ten(way before bluetooth). Best gift i ever got. I use it everyday.
  • I really like my Beats Pill with a bike mount that mounts on the headrest bar. With over 6000 songs on my iPhone, I can take my entire music collection with me everywhere. They can hear me coming before they see me.

    I use one too. It's attached to the pole that holds my mirror. Music makes the ride go so much faster.
  • A Beats Pill might fit nicely into a drink holder . . . ?
