    Mamapiebiking

    Although an avid bike rider when younger a few months ago I was walking while my daughter rode her bike and I realized that I was going to have to get a bike if I was to keep up. I went out and got an upright. Immediately started training. I had forgotten how much I loved it. I started a training program, bought a trainer (it was Feb in Denver) and got serious. In April I fell down my stairs, spraining my hip and giving myself a hernia (3rd in 13 mths). Now I am healing from my surgery. My Dr didn't want me getting back on my bike yet, for fear of falling. Due to my Dr and ridiculous gas prices, I decided to invest in a recumbent trike. I got it Thursday and haven't been off it until the rain came. I love it. It's awesome, I pedal and pedal but there is no worry about balancing and therefore falling. It's the best. I am not retiring my upright bike yet, but this is so comfy, it's going to be hard to go back - but I can't until I get my Dr's okay anyway. Until then - I'll stay 'bent.

    Hello ladybugrider--you aren't the only woman out there riding a 'bent trike--so does sbhikes, down in SoCal.

    Are you from Denver, then? There's quite a few members from Denver alone, never mind the rest of Colorado. Enjoy your trike!

    Welcome to BF!

    Welcome, ladybugrider! Are those trikes as comfy as I hear they are?
    "Real wars of words are harder to win. They require thought, insight, precision, articulation, knowledge, and experience. They require the humility to admit when you are wrong. They recognize that the dialectic is not about making us look at you, but about us all looking together for the truth."
