Considering a recumbent? New article out to help you find one that's right for you

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

The article misses the most salient point regarding high vs low racer; the high racer allows for a longer beard before touching the ground.
