Sunday Morning on TV did a segment about getting around by bicycle: named everything EXCEPT 'bents: "Tag-a-longs", trailers for kids, a large flatbed DF bike, how 'Bike Friendly' the city of Portland, OR. is, "green lanes" at stops, etc.
Tells me a little something about recumbent bikes/trikes. After 28 'bent years for me - I wonder if the term "parade bikes" is still being used to describe recumbents? I guess some things never change- no wonder I still get the "What the 'H' is that???" I find this very interesting and funny at the same time.
