    recumbent rider

    I have been riding a Tour Easy for over 23 years and it has changed my life. My wife also has a Tour Easy that she enjoys riding but not quite as fanaticly as me. I have ridden it daily in the farthest north town in the USA, Barrow, Alaska for many years. The coldest I have ridden it is at -100 f with the chill factor. I have also given over 2,000 people their first recumbent bike ride on our Double Vision recumbent tandem. We are currently living in Anchorage where I have been unable to ride as regularly because of the deep snow. I still ride a couple of times a week once they get the sidewalks cleared. In Barrow it wasn't a problem since it is a northern desert and doesn't get much snow. I have several lighting systems including the Down Low glow which is battery operated neon and is quite beautiful on the snow. Looking forward to enjoying this site.

    Welcome to the forums, fellow bent rider! You'll ride in a lot colder weather than I would. I just couldn't imagine riding in below zero temps, let alone -100!
