Why a Recumbent Trike May Be For You!

Delta Recumbent Trike

My wife chose a #recumbent trike because of balance issues due to her Multiple Sclerosis.  I chose a #recumbent #trike because I enjoyed the comfort that I found on my first ride.  

Important: The Tennessee Bicycle Laws you need to know

Bike Laws accident

In Tennessee, a #bicycle has the legal status of a vehicle. This means that bicyclists have full rights and responsibilities on the roadway and are subject to the regulations governing the operation of a motor vehicle. My wife and I began riding #recumbent trikes a few months back as a fun way to get our #exercise.  Our original thought was that we would ride around our neighborhood. We live in a typical subdivision setting and our standard ride exposes us to very little car traffic. As our comfort with the trikes grew and our physical conditioning got better we wanted to expand our riding adventures. We decided to start utilizing the greenways in our area.  We have some really enjoyable greenways close to us and these greenways are automobile free.

I Challenge You to Enjoy this Awesome Greenway Now!!

Cedar City Trail - Lebanon, TN

I had not been aware that there were so many opportunities to ride in our area.  The discovery of the greenways has opened up a lot of great riding opportunity. Clueless! Until I started researching for a #recumbent trike purchase, I did not understand much about the greenways.  I mean, I was cognizant of the fact that there were these areas referred to as greenways.  Most of what I had heard about the greenways had been negative comments on local radio talk shows.   The usual diatribe about how they cost money, it’s a conspiracy,  and they are ruining people’s lives. Once I had settled on a recumbent and found a local bike shop I really “discovered” the greenways.  The purveyor of trikes, Dennis, had a wealth of information on riding opportunities in our area.  It turns out that he had been utilizing the greenways for some time.  He provided my wife and me with stories, maps, links, and the uniquely…
