Hi from New Zealand
I am 43yrs and have been cycling on and off since I started racing as a Schoolboy. I have a tandem I have been riding with my wife for the last 18yrs. It is a Bob Jackson. Got a C'Dale a couple of yrs ago too.
Have a few older solo bikes also. Alan, Rossin Ghibli, Holdsworth, Bosomworth funnybike, and a 50th anniversary Colnago which is the only modern one. I enjoy riding all of them and tend to use them all now and again, but the Rossin is the main training bike. Also built a recumbent some years ago and continue to be interested in HPV stuff.
Seems like a great forum and am looking forward to being a part of it.
You are not the only one here from NZ.
I am Henry, a recumbent cyclist now, previously a mountainbiker before my accident a few years ago.
That was a flying accident but the main thing is that I am on the mend and getting fitter using my recumbent foot propelled trike.
What sort of recumbent did you built?
I might see you at Kiwi HPV meetings?
