Hello from Lynden, Washington


New Member
Hello I’m new to this forum. I live in Lynden, Washington, small town in the Pacific Northwest. Lynden boarders Canada 🇨🇦 and is surrounded with dairy farms, berry fields and steeped in Dutch culture. Lots of quiet country roads to enjoy. I’ve been biking all my life and have made bicycles my hobby. I enjoy riding them, fixing them, restoring them, and collecting them. I’m really excited about ebikes which I consider the future of transportation. I owned a 2019 Specialized Vado 5.0 and loved it. I really want to try out some of the other brands so I sold the Vado and bought a 2020 Trek Allant + 7. We’ll see how that turns out.I like this forum and how I can glean some information and maybe contribute some also.
Welcome to the forums, I am new and also recently purchased a Trek Allant +7s, So far I am enjoying it. I live Upstate NY at the foot of the Adirondacks, also a lot of farm land and lakes to cruise around. I look forward to hearing tips and pointers from all the Allant owners. Wondering what kind of range everyone is getting out of their battery and what type of gear like bags, tools etc you all use.
Welcome !!! I have a good friend that was a high school teacher at Lynden for many years, now retired. He lives in Bellingham. I still have my Giant Yukon I converted with a BBSHD mid-drive. I call it my hot-rod. Also , a Rad Mini I take camping and really enjoy. My wife has a Liberty Trike we have a lot of fun with. So many to chose from.
Thank you for joining, from the sound of it you'll fit right in here. I bet you'll have some valuable knowledge for us.
Welcome, beautiful country up there. It always reminds me of the Amish/farm country in PA where I grew up. I think last time I heard Lynden mentioned there was flooding up there - it seems so long ago now!
