Re-introduction Northeast Ohio Recumbent Rider

Seeing that my last post was more than two years ago, and the post before that almost three, and not being active on here for basically the last four years, I find it fitting that I reintroduce myself.

Why am I suddenly back? Because Bikeforums is awesome, and after a hiatus of about 5 years from cycling, I've signed up for a LONG charity ride happening July 2016.

About me: Descendant of Karl Drais (full name Karl Friedrich Christian Ludwig Freiherr (German for Baron) Drais Von Sauerbronn) the inventor of the bicycle. Currently main bike is a Bacchetta Giro 20 recumbent, I also have a few traditional road bikes, mostly classic steel, and two mountain bikes.

For work I'm "that Beer Guy" I deliver wine, beer and spirits to local stores" full time, and part time I'm an event photographer shooting marathons, mud events, graduation ceremonies, and the like.

Somewhere between all of this I need to train for a 4 day 300+ mile ride! Yeah me!

Hey Ya half_bent,

Welcome back.

I went to a trike for safety after a brain damage crash on a DF.

Wow, glad your still able to ride. We had an accident near Cleveland where a pick up truck turned in front of 5 cyclists. All five hit the truck, two did not survive. Here's my bike shortly after I got it:
