man I love this trike

I just got a catrike speed a month or so ago and its killer. Ive been commuting to work on it a few times a week ( 15 miles each way ) and I've been loving it. But today I took it out to scout some new trails, green river in seattle and another one, and before I realized it I had clipped off 45 miles at an average speed of 18 mph and still felt fresh. No soar neck, hands, butt or anything else that could go numb. And to top it all off the weather, outside of some wind, was perfect. Cant beat that. I might take alot of cr@p for riding a recumbent but today made it all worth it.
Go in comfort and smile.

oh, anyone know about or belong to the rondenuer (sp) club of Seattle?
later

Great to hear you are enjoying your trike, pay no attention to anyone who 'looks down on you' cause you are riding a bent...just continue to enjoy. I have thought about making me one but have not got round to it.
