Looking for a way to get in better shape and discovered recumbent riding after seeing TeaBone riding to work on his weird bike. Started on a Strada and moved to a Rans F5 Pro later on. Spent so much time riding and being away from home that DW and I decided to do some tandem riding and picked up a used Rans Screamer tandem. Now we go on about one organized tandem trip a year, I go on one or two supported single rides a year, ride with a group of recumbent riders some weekends and the rest is solo. Annual goal is 5000 miles a year.
