A Bent Look at Self Contained Touring

On the Bike Again

Lifecycle Recumbent

This recumbent may not look much like a Slipstream or a Vanguard but it is what I am happy to be riding right now. We have about 3 feet of snow on the ground in my front yard and finally after about a week of snow covered roads we can see blacktop again.


However, I am spending a lot more time on the Elliptical Trainer than on the Recumbent Exercise Bike. The Elliptical Trainer is great for rebalancing your muscles are over developing them on the Recumbent Bicycle. I suspect I would have had a lot faster recovery if I had spent a lot more time on the Elliptical Trainer the last few winters. I didn’t because I found it very hard to use, my leg muscles just didn’t want to work that way. That should have been a warning to me.

I highly recommend using an Elliptical Trainer at the gym during your winter workouts and cutting down on the Exercise Bike time if your are an older rider like me.

PS While I have been writing this post, it has been snowing and the roads are now snow covered again. It looks like Spring may be a long ways off.
