If you’ve been following electric bike developments for the past several years, you know that Rad Power Bikes was one of the earliest U.S. e-bike brands. Rad sells folding bikes, city commuters, cargo bikes, and adventure bikes. The RadRover is one of the most powerful and most popular models. Last year we rated the previous version, the RadRover 5, as one of the best fat tire bikes you could buy, and Rad bikes are perennial favorites in best electric bike roundups. The RadRover 6 Plus, the electric bike now on sale, incorporates updates and upgrades that add significant value, from the new 750-watt geared hub electric motor on the rear wheel hub to the automatically activated halo headlight, taillight, and brake light. The Rad’s 26-inch fat tire with integrated tire liners is puncture resistant. Fat tires help e-bikes maintain stability regardless of the surface plus they add to rider comfort on bumpy or rough roads and paths. The RadRover 6 Plus also has a front suspension fork and an ergonomic seat that add to rider enjoyment and comfort.

Rad Power Bikes’ approach to electric power is to use it for range and torque to get up steep inclines. You can mix your ride on the e-bike in three ways: Pedaling only with a 7-speed Derailleur, pedaling with five levels of battery assistance, or hand drip twist throttle control to run on battery power only. Even if you would rather do the work yourself, the extra boost from the battery can help you start moving faster from lights and stop signs or provide additional support when you’re pedaling up hills. The RadRover 6 Plus is available in high step and step-thru styles. The step-thru model is available with a charcoal or white frame and the high step version is in charcoal only. The step-thru model is rated for appropriate use by persons from 5-foot 2-inches to 6-foot 2-inches in height and the high step model from 5-foot 4-inches to 6-foot 2-inches. Both are rated to carry up to 275 pounds including the rider and any extra gear.

Don’t hesitate on this one because Rad Power Bikes doesn’t have sales all that often and a $300 savings on this latest Rad stalwart electric bike is a significant price cut. If you order before midnight on May 8, you can save $300 off Rad Power Bike’s regular $1,999 price for the RadRover 6 Plus and buy it for just $1,699. Just be sure to use the discount code SAVE300 in order to get the discount.

Add these East Coast ski resorts to your winter plans
Skiing and snowboarding at these East Coast resorts is fantastic
Sugarloaf ski resort

There are two things the East Coast doesn't lack, mountain ranges and formidable winters. East of the Mississippi River, incredible ski resorts let you challenge some of the East's best mountains — like those in northern New York’s Adirondacks, Vermont’s Green Mountains, New Hampshire's White Mountains, and the Alleghenies in Pennsylvania and West Virginia — have been drawing skiers for nearly a century, since the days when slopes were serviced only with rope tows and solely reliant on the natural powder provided by Mother Nature.

While the East Coast may not have the acreage or the altitude of the West’s most iconic ski resorts, the region’s resorts still have plenty to offer, from vertiginous steeps and spellbinding glades to meticulously groomed cruisers perfect for novices. As this season ramps up and the snow starts to settle on the mountaintops, we're getting to that time of year when you should really have something booked for skiing. But isn't it time you tried somewhere new, or perhaps a little closer to home by hitting the slopes at some of the best East Coast ski resorts?

Prepare yourself for backcountry adventures so that bear sightings don't become bear attacks
Bear running through the water

If someone walked into your house uninvited, you would probably take issue with them. So why is it that some hikers and trekkers get put out by bear encounters? After all, haven't you just walked into their home unannounced, and aren't they within their rights to act out in self-defense? Sure, bears aren't the only animals on the trail that you might come across, but they're among the most common, and if you're a serious outdoorsman, you'll eventually encounter a bear.

Time to wake up: Climate change gave us our hottest summer ever and the Earth is in meltdown, U.N. says
We're entering a whole new era of climate change. "Climate breakdown has begun," the U.N. warns
Wild bushfires burning in Tasmania, Australia.

If it seems like this summer, and 2023 in general, has been a wild one weather-wise, you’re not imagining things. In North America, Canada had its worst wildfire season ever, by far, and much of the U.S. continued to break high-temperature records in July and August, only to break them again a few days later. It’s not just happening here, of course, but worldwide. The bottom line: We’re entering a whole new era of climate change, folks.

Earlier this month, the United Nations weather agency confirmed that the last three months were indeed the hottest on record. U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres warned, “The dog days of summer are not just barking; they are biting.” But his might be the most sobering warning we’ve seen from any expert on the matter: “Our planet has just endured a season of simmering — the hottest summer on record. Climate breakdown has begun.” The keyword is breakdown. There’s no denying the situation is dire, but it’s not irreversible — yet.
