Recumbents for Roadies

Get Bent

Thoughts on riding a recumbent from a roadie’s perspective

In 2019 had some health problems that made it difficult to ride an upright bike, so I got a recumbent, as one does. Eventually the problems went away, but I still occasionally ride the ‘bent. Mostly to justify the expense (I of course went overboard on the ‘bent), but also to keep up my skills in case things go south and I can’t ride a “real” bike any more.

TL;DR: I don’t like riding a recumbent bike, but it is better than not riding at all.
