Last weekend, as the temperatures soared, we decided to escape to the mountains to find some relief from the heat. During our getaway, I managed to construct an exciting new jump for the ebike, and you can witness my airborne moment on our Instagram page (link above). Additionally, our one-year-old delighted us by sprouting more teeth, adding to the joy of our weekend.
I hope you had a pleasant weekend as well. Now, let’s move on to the latest news.
