Out on my usual ride on my Stratus getting near home a guy flags me down to ask a bunch of questions about my recumbent. It was the usual story, he wants to cycle for exercise, but because of a bad back he found out riding his sons DF bike hurt too much.
Getting stopped like this seems to be getting more frequent. More and more older people seem to be interested in biking, and when they see me riding both my bent and my trike, it looks like im having fun. BTW I am. Like the guy mentioned above, many tell me they have back, neck, or hand problems, and wonder if bents or trike riding would hurt as much as a DF. Any more I am stopped so much that I have taken to carrying the business card of our local bent shop.
