    It's a common problem. In order to test ride a selection of recumbents many folks resign themselves to driving several hours to the nearest source.

    Try posting your inquiry on the message board at www.bentrideronline.com A lot of helpful folks there - I'm sure someone can steer you to someplace in New Jersey.

    Otherwise there's the Bicycle Man in New York and Mr. Airy Cycles in Maryland - both with large selections.
    I'll gently rise and I'll softly call
    Good night and joy be with you all.

    Is there a recumbent club somewhere nearby that you could contact? The Monterey Bay Recumbent Club has a test ride program and perhaps other clubs do too. It's a long shot. You're right....there aren't many places to go and test a wide variety of bikes. Good luck....
