New Bent rider from Virginia

Hello and thanks for reading. Living in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia and retired from the military in 2014 and Iraq vet. Had to give up the MTB because of injuries in Iraq. Will have my new too me Catrike Road by the end of the week. Looking forward to racking up some miles. If your from VA, give me a shout and see if we can't do some riding. Here is my first experience with a trike during the 2015 Chicago Soldier Ride with the Wounded Warrior Project

Welcome. That's a cool trike you are sitting on. I like your faithful buddy too. I just joined the bent crowd myself after picking up a barn find Radius Hornet 2 I am currently sorting out. It's not perfect shape but decent enough to ascertain whether i like bents or not.

I've been on a few short rides and find it a lot harder on the legs but really enjoy riding it and all the looks and comments I receive. Thanks for the welcome. The jersey is from the Chicago bike ride with the Wounded Warrior Project and Bella is my companion.
