What is a recumbent trike?
Needless to say, I have been reluctant to ride since then, and my husband has been missing those outings. He sometimes rides alone, but it is always nicer to have someone along for the ride. He is the one that started looking at the trikes. Now trikes in my mind had been for old ladies, but upon looking at all the pictures and information out there online, I realized that they are for people of all ages and some are really geared for racing and long distance endurance riding. They give you a much safer ride, you can actually look around much easier and you won't fall over when you stop, so when you want to make a turn you don't have to unclip... you just stop look and then turn. Mirrors are still important on any bike, but being able to look before you make a potentially dangerous move is really a great relief. Did I mention that I was even able to answer my cell phone while riding along? I am not a real cell phone person, but I do have one with me usually and wouldn't you know it rang when I was riding and I was able to answer. That was way cool.
