Healthy Ways to Ride Into the Future

By Sam | Jan 6, 2015 | in

Contrary to belief, some late-night commercials do have value. Just ask Tom Hemenway, co-owner of EZ Electric Bikes & Scooters. One evening, as he watched television, an ad for an electric bicycle came on. After being diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, Hemenway was thinking about different ways he could exercise to lose weight. Whether it was fate, or coincidence, the commercial not only got Hemenway to take his health seriously, it inspired him and his wife to open their business.

Hemenway heavily researched and bought an electric bike. After one ride, he fell in love with it. The Hemenway’s wanted other people to have the same experience and it wasn’t long before they added EZ Bikes & Scooters as a sister company to their existing business, Autosounds of NH.

Retirement community offers sustainable facilities, green culture

What began as a homegrown idea in the heads of Rosemary Coffin and Maryanna Hatch has turned into a constantly growing community. RiverWoods at Exeter is a nonprofit organization that focuses on high-quality care. Since opening in 1994, the Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) has expanded to three campuses, hundreds of apartments and cottages, as well as several dining and exercise facilities.

RiverWoods is a perfect place for the earth-conscious retiree. Outfitted with timed LED and CFL lights, resident-run recycling program, a solar thermal system which aids in heating hot water. And every day, they’re planning for future improvements.
