You know your hooked when you find yourself thinking about riding your recumbent when your doing other things. You can be miles away from your bike and in your head, right there in the seat.
I first imagined riding a Recumbent years before I owned one. I had this vision of riding down Wayside Inn Road in Framingham after a stop at the Tavern at the Inn. The day dream was with a group of people on Recumbent's as well. Three years later the dream was realized. Fast and fun, I have now done that exact road many times.
There is no better bicycle for a road trip then a Recumbent. There is a much better view, more comfort and when you stop, the odd machine arracks passer by's. I love meeting new people and a Recumbent is the perfect tool for the job!
If your reading this and have never ridden a Recumbent Bicycle, it may be hard to imagine how great a design it is. Of course it looks a little odd, but sitting back and seeing the sky, trees and the view that most "Heads Down" cyclists miss is enlightening and such an attract to have you thinking about your next adventure!
