Greetings Earthlings!

Hello! Name here is Bryan, and I live a rural part of NW Arkansas. Would like to say hello to everyone here, this is a great place on the web. Looking forward to learning more about this wonderful hobby and have already picked up some useful info. After reading bunches of posts and seeing what sort of bikes eveyone else has, I feel kinda like I've arrived at a Cadillac convention in a donkey cart. What with all the Cannondales and such, and even some I had to go look up on the web, I know I'm not in that class. I ride for recreation and exercise, usually 10 or 12 miles 3 or 4 times a week when the weather is good, and I do it on department store bikes. right now I have a Mongoose from wally world and a Kent tandem that my wife and I havea good time on. We are looking to upgrade at some time in the future, and are looking really hard at a tandem recumbent and after being here, have developed an interest in recumbent trikes.

Any guidence someone would care to offer in that respect would be greatly appreciated.

Be safe!

Don't worry about the "donkey cart." The important thing is to have fun! Enjoy your ride.

"Earthlings"? - I don't know; I have suspicions about some "people" on here...

As Blackberry said, don't worry about the "donkey cart". What you ride is less important than the fact that you're actually out riding. And that automatically puts you ahead of the vast majority of the people. Besides, all bikes go only as fast as you pedal them. It's the motor that ultimately counts. I look forward to reading more of your posts>
