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.

Your Bike Bell: Important Safety Alert or Really Obnoxious?

Bike Bell

  The greenway and shared paths are relatively new for me.  My first ride on the greenway came with a lesson on passing etiquette that left me confused. Would utilizing my bell be rude?     Ring the bell or Holler? It was  a beautiful day.  My wife and I had joined a friend for our maiden ride on one of the paved greenways.  I was very excited about getting out and riding on the trails.  Utilizing the paved #biking paths is one of the reasons I decided on getting a trike.  For some reason I met this new experience with some trepidation.  Not over- the- top anxiety, but I was noticeably anxious.  I was slightly aware that there were some rules of etiquette to follow and I am generally uncouth.  I am not some keen cyclist.  I am just some non-athletic fat guy riding his #recumbent trike on the greenway for the first time!  I was going to be…
