Hello from San Francisco
Jessica says hello from the hilly city. My husband and I ride a Greenspeed tandem recumbent trike around town, mostly grocery shopping and similar errands. A trike so that someone with a lousy sense of balance, like me, can enjoy cycling without fear of falling over. A tandem so that Hubby doesn't leave me in the dust, despite his faster pace. We put in extra-low gearing so that even a couple of couch potatoes like us can shlep a week's worth of groceries home over the hills. We chug along sedately but still get loads of smiles and waves from pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists.
