1 Cycle Oregon
2 Medium length training routes in Portland
3 Just cruising around the neighborhood
I have two daughters who both ride recumbent trikes and two wheelers. My youngest (age 11) favorite bike is her 20" wheel Quest.
My first recumbent was a Cruzbike Kit. It was one of the first ones made, and my build was heavy but fun. I then moved on to nearly every style of two wheel recumbent. Then, I stopped riding two wheel recumbents for several years due to the poor climbing performance. Then I (re)tried a newer Cruzbike and fell in love.
I ride for fitness, but primarily want to have fun and be comfortable when riding. If it isn't fun I do not want to ride. The problem is that I also like to go fast. Riding a Cruzbike allows me to hit every aspect that I enjoy of riding a bike.
My genuine Cruzbike moment is that moment when cruising along the flats or the rollers realizing I am practically flying down the road in complete comfort, with much less effort than I would be expending on ANY other bike. That means more miles for me.
