Fremont OHIO newbie

Hi everyone. After 30 years of nothing, I started riding again about four years ago with a 24 speed Townie, which is really fun to tool around town on. I'm looking to branch out and try a SWB recumbent this summer. I've visited a few shops and I'm finding a major barrier is my height: 5' 0" and short x-seam. My husband has several bikes but no recumbents and has been riding for years so I have a lot of catching up to do! Cello55

Great! I ride the trail too. I'm the one on the short Townie with the wicker basket full of water bottles and books!
