I'm just getting back into riding. I have arthritis in my lower back and neck so my road bike hasn't been used much. I just put money down on a recumbant bike after talking at length with a 68 year old who had similar issues 10 years ago and the recumbant has allowed him to ride as much as he wants. What really impressed me was that his riding partner is 80 and they have done long tours on their recumbents.
I did give my road bike one last chance and after 5 miles my neck, wrists and elbows were killing me. I can ride my mountain bikes more comfortably if its not too rough. I live in the Muskegon area and will be looking for some interesting riding routes soon.
Thanks for a great site,
