And this from a preteen

Out bicycling
one day with my eight-year-old
granddaughter, Carolyn, I got a little
wistful.

'In ten years,' I said, 'you'll want
to be with your friends and you won't go
walking, biking, and swimming with me like you do
now..

Carolyn shrugged.

























































'In ten years you'll be
too old to do all those things anyway.'

I don't know.. I'm over sixty years old and still go bicycle riding on occasion.. I've been known to hike as well but in truth,, I am in SERIOUS PAIN before I finish the hike.

But I still bicycle epically when I'm in the park at Davison,, IT's level enough (For the most part) and they have free coffee in the family center.

I'll be 65 in July and I still walk and ride the bike (about 30 plus miles per week and sometimes more).

You are only as old as you feel.

This is what I ride. Much 4asier on the seat and hands than a regular bike.

Catrike Recumbent Trikes


Ken
I'm looking at moving to a recumbent bike. Do you feel you get as much exercise riding the recumbent as you did riding the conventional bikes? I am a diabetic so I like to burn calories at a rate of 400 to 600 for an hours ride each day to avoid the need for medicene.

sdennislee, Ever bit as much effort to ride and no sore butt or hands. If you want lots of 'Bent info, check out bentridersonline.com.

When you first start riding a Bent, you legs will be sore due to the slightly diffent use of the leg muscles. They are not a good climbing hills as a DF (diamond frame) because you can't stand up and use your weight to pedal. If is gear down and spin to get to the top.

Most shops don't carry Bents, so you will need to find one and get a trial ride. I ordered mine from Utah Trikes. Service was good. I have been riding Bents now fro about 12 years.

If you were near Houston there is Planetary Cycles and in Austin, there is Easy Street cycles.

Most any bent rider will be accommodating and let you you have a test ride.

Keep pedaling.

Ken

Thanks for the link and info. I will try to visit Planetary Cycles before leaving Kemah for California.

I can put up the sore legs for a while if I can get rid of the sore butt all the time.
