Just to introduce myself to the community...I'm a 62 year old retired Headteacher and have recently bought a very nice recumbent, a (Radius) Peer Gynt (lwb uss). My first ride was somewhat scary. I just couldn't relax which I'm told is the secret. I will persevere and hope to benefit from the experience and advice of any recumbent riders on the forum. I live in Cheltenham, UK, so if there is someone not too far away I would be pleased to hear from them.
