Michigan Rail-trail riders
Hi, my wife, Judy, and I are avid rail-trail riders, with one exception so far all our riding has been in Michigan. We have been riding two BikeE ATs, but are waiting the delivery of the two Rans V-Rexs
We bought recumbent bikes because Judy lost both collar bones due to radiation treatments for cancer 18 years ago and riding on a DF (old fashioned "safety bikes") resulted in pain both while riding and for hours afterward. On the recumbent there is no pain.
We have been riding the BikeEs since we purchased them in March '02. We decided recently that we should get recumbents that are more tour orientated and after looking around the Rans V-Rex seems to fit our needs best, so we ordered two.
When we are not riding I an an adjunct professor of history for Kellogg Community College.
We are thinking of taking some time off this winter and spending time in Florida or other warmer states south of here.
