Hi Andrew-I think I once cycled near Bruton, though that was in my pre-bent days. Anyway it's cool to know there are other riders round these parts, the only other person I've seen on one around Bristol is Adam Hart Davis ( the broadcaster ) I think he has an ICE Trike. I'm sure there must be more of us, just got to find them. I was interested in a Grasshopper for a while, how is it? It looks like a fine machine, I haven't tried a 2-wheel recumbent yet though I'd like to very much.
Vik-Thanks for that, I did have a look there but I'll have a proper look later on. The Scorpion is fantastic, it's the only Trike I've ever ridden so I don't really have anything to compare it to, but it's really revolutionised the way I look at cycling, it's comfortable, fast, stable and very well designed. I was pretty much sold on it the moment I tried it out. I went up a very steep and long hill on it last night and it was actually fine, with the extra wheel there is no chance of tipping over so I just span my legs, sat back and took my time. I'll try and get some pics of the beast up soon.
