I am a 53 year old woman with some health issues that make a recumbent seem like the choice for me. I am doing more riding lately, particularly on the amazing Iowa trail system, but I am not currently a regular rider since I still have a couple of young kids at home. However, we are riding more and more. I cannot find a bike shop around here that has any 2 wheeled recumbents. They are all trikes. So, how can I go about buying one. Also, I am wondering what to buy. I need to be able to put it on my Thule bike rack to transport it around the state to different trails. I would like to also do city riding, but we mostly ride trails and sidewalks in the city, too. I think a high rider seems like a good choice, but I just don't know. A trike would not fit my bike rack, nor would I be able to ride side by side with my husband on the trails, so trikes are out at the moment. Any recommendations about type of bike and where to buy one would be greatly appreciated.
