My wife and I found riding our mountain bikes to be too uncomfortable in our more advanced years, and riding was no longer fun. This spring we purchased a pair of recumbents and have rediscovered the joy of bike riding.
Mine's a Sun tadpole, which I recently modified to accept a 700 cm rear wheel, and I'd like to commute to work with, but worry about my visibility. I've put a 12v lighting system on it (basically automobile lighting) and have a flag and Xenon flasher, but I still wonder about my visiblity in a low-slung bike.
How do other trike riders feel about commuting in traffic on a trike as opposed to standard height bicycle?
I appreciate opinions, experiences or advice.
