Hi and Thanks

As my name suggests I not only new to this forum but only just getting into bikes again. I have recently sold my never used road bike and want to get fit by joining the modern biking fraternity. As age and health issues creep up I am hoping to get a recumbent trike. Initially I thought an electric powered one would be good but now think rather than carting around a battery that will be flat most of the time I would be better buying a better quality standard trike. Still not finally convinced due to road quality, lots of hills around and just being seen but hope to learn a lot from you all and get some help in making my decision. Anyway thanks for having me.

Welcome to BF, from another old guy. As No1mad said the Recumbent Forum can help you out, they are a great group of people and very helpful to someone just looking into "Bents and Trikes.
