So I rode a recumbent trike and

Swift Touring Recumbent Tricycle - thanks to Ms Rebecca for making it possible.  liked it.

Things I like:

  • no back pain.
  • easy to ride.
  • you stop at a set of lights, and that’s all.
    You don’t need to place your feet on the ground.

Things I didn’t like:

  • cage drivers.
  • stalling on hills.

Ms Rebecca was right.  You need to think about where you’re going, and anticipate it.  Such as changing down gears when riding up hills.  Otherwise you’ll stall when a cage driver stops in front of you.
At least you don’t fall off when you stop.  I’ve had several falls on a two wheel bike, mainly from not unclipping my feet.
