We’ve Got Baby Boomers on the Brain

What constitutes a Baby Boomer? Anyone might have their own definition, but generally Baby Boomers are thought to be people born between the years 1946 and 1963.

Baby Boomers are the people who lived through the Cold War, who remember the day JFK was assassinated, who heard the Beatles and Elvis on the radio – extraordinary times for an extraordinary generation of people.

Now, many Boomers are growing older and facing both the joys and difficulties of age – but things aren’t the same now as they always were.

Phones are attached to everyone’s hand; gasoline sure isn’t less than a dollar per gallon; and for Baby Boomers, maybe going for a run or bike ride isn’t as easy now as it was at 20 years old.

Having the freedom to be mobile and to exercise is a gift that not every Baby Boomer (or every person of any generation) has.

At American Eagle Cycles, our purpose is to provide that freedom to individuals who cannot easily be mobile. And now, we truly want to hear about issues with freedom or mobility from you.

Do you wish you could ride along with your granddaughter as she learns to ride her first bike? Maybe you want to stay social and go cycling with a group of friends who still bike together every Sunday morning. Or maybe you just miss getting out and getting your exercise comfortably, without having to worry about injury.

WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU! If you are a Baby Boomer, or even if you know and love a Baby Boomer, we want you to jump in on the discussion! Any stories, thoughts, or feelings you may have on the topic, we want to hear.

Please comment below with any thoughts you may have about freedom and mobility! We would love to speak with the very individuals that inspired our cycle to discuss your wants and needs. If you would like to give a more detailed account or give personal feedback PLEASE EMAIL ME AT tessa@aecycles.com.

That’s what we were thinking…Now let us know what you’re thinking.

We don’t blame you! Our custom cycle is unlike any other and there are plenty of questions to ask, such as:

Benefits of our Tricycle

As someone who works in the bicycle industry, I’m constantly browsing online at what’s new in the industry, what’s happening today, and what people are talking about. I recently came across an intriguing image that shows the benefits of a bicycle. Most of the benefits mentioned are not what you would typically think of; they aren’t specific to a particular bike, but more about the enjoyment you can get from riding a bike, such as “puts a big fat smile on your face” or “whizzes past traffic jams.”

I enjoyed the picture and quotes so much that I decided to create one about our tricycle. Although all of the statements on the ‘Benefits of a Bicycle’ image also apply to our tricycle, I wanted to point out all of the advantages of an American Eagle tricycle over other products on the market. Enjoy! And if you think of any other good ones feel free to post them in the comments section below.
