City Life and Ebikes Can Change Your Life

City Life and Ebikes Can Change Your Life

October 4, 2022

To hear retirees Margaret and Kevin Shea tell the story, two things have totally transformed their lives: City Life and EBikes. 

The first change happened when this former software engineer and his wife decided to follow their two adult sons into the actual City of Atlanta (from the suburbs where they'd spent 30 years of their lives).  Discovering an exciting new world of close knit neighborhoods and neighborhood shops (like the new Ebike store that opened just down the block).

Determined to "try it all", they took one for a spin. And that's when things really took off.  "Fun was our only reason for buying one," admits Kevin, "but it soon turned out to be the best investment we ever made."  "It added some spice to our lives (and our 40 year marriage)," smiles Margaret. "Taking us places we never knew existed".

Like the 22 mile Beltline around Atlanta which they discovered right at their doorstep. A multi-use trail on a former railway corridor which goes around the core of Atlanta, this Beltline project was designed to reconnect neighborhoods and communities with restaurants, coffee shops, and places of interest (like the nearby Atlanta Zoo and parks). All at a slower "people pace".

A perfect pathway for their new eBikes that took them in so many new directions, connecting them with their community (and kids) more. And bringing them better health and sleep as well as they rode more frequently(and further) on their new electric bikes.

Several recurring themes we hear often on this show.

For as Margaret herself if prone to proclaim to anyone and everyone she meets, "to say that owning a Pedego is life changing is not an understatement. We lost weight, improved our sleep (and our marriage).  Made new friends and found a new direction in life.  Who would have thought that two simple electric bikes could add so much to our lives?"

Margaret is a coach for Optavia and is happy to help anyone who is looking to begin their health journey. To learn more about Optavia, please contact Margaret at keshea@bellsouth.net or call her at 770-630-8435.

Just two aging, ever evolving baby boomers, experiencing the ride of their life. On this week's Pedego Podcast.
