I have yet to see more women riding a recumbent. More often then I have anyway. I have only ever seen 4. There are 2 I have seen in my area here, it was during the interview and photo-op I posted about regarding recumbents. I found out those 2 very nice and lovely ladies do not ride very much or very far, but hey at least they are riding.
And the other 2 was during a organised ride I did in Des Moines in April. One woman was on her own recumbent. A re-painted Vision R40, LWB. This lovely lady had to switch to the LWB, she had a SWB. She is so petite that she kept getting bounced out of the bike when ever she would hit a rough bumpy spot. But that did not stop her from riding it. She just had her R40 modified into the LWB, now she has no more problems. And the other was on a Greenspeed tandem trike with her husband.
Ladies fitting a recumbent for your smaller and shorter sizes is a lot easier then fitting a wedgie bike for you. You really don't know what you are missing.
Does recumbent riding not appeal to women as much as it does men? If it does not why not?
Ladies please do not take this as sexist remarks or comments and if I offended any of you I whole heartidly apologize. That was not my intention.
