Since my childhood I’ve enjoyed bicycles. When I was a kid I had a Schwinn that looked somewhat like a 53 Buick. Later I had a English Racer. I think it was a 3 speed hub transmission, but it had skinny tires and hand brakes. I see these bikes on Craigs list now that bring big bucks or at least more than I would like to spend for one.
20 or 25 years ago my son got into bicycle racing and with his friends would go on long rides preparing for this big race or that one. My son had gathered up several old 10 speeds that he kept around the house. One Sunday morning they ask me if I would like to go along. I made it maybe 2 miles and departed their company. I walked the bike back home. I just recently told that story to my son. Over time I could ride further and further and we spent many miles riding together.
Recently we have a renewed interest in bicycles and riding and a keen interest in recumbent bikes. That’s what this blog is about, our new journey into recumbent building and where it goes from there.
These notes are more for me keeping track of my interest and links to others of interest in the hobby. Very well if you get some use from it also.
