Why a Recumbent Bike?

With the recumbent bike, people are discovering that cycling does not have to cause them pain! In fact recumbent bicycles and tricycles can be ridden for hours and miles without ailments. Issues like a sore butt, stiff neck, aching shoulders or numb hands that afflict the conventional bicycle rider are gone! Instead, the recumbent rider experiences far greater comfort and a better view of the world!

The Bonus of a Recumbent Bike

As a bonus, because of the unconventional appearance you, as a pedaling recumbent rider presents, drivers tend to notice you on the road better! The biggest part of your body is in the car driver’s field of vision and you do not blend in with pedestrians, joggers, or conventional bicyclists.

Recumbent bicycles or tricycles are a great choice for anyone who, for whatever reason, experiences pain or discomfort while riding a conventional bike. Additionally, recumbent tricycles are a great choice persons with balance issues, handicaps, or just a general apprehension of riding a regular 2 wheeler.
