Not Much Happening

I haven't posted in a while because there isn't much to say. The weather has improved and I'm getting out as often as possible but I continue to pedal the same areas. Not a bad thing since a couple miles from home offers some reasonably safe and scenic roads. I tried riding with others but as much as I might enjoy there company they are either too fast or too slow. I am also not interested in transporting my bike 40 miles to ride 40 miles in a group. I rediscovered cycling almost 30 years ago, found recumbents 15 years ago and have been triking more than a decade. I have become recumbent savvy over the years and am an active member of many bicycle and recumbent newsgroups. As I get older I realize what I have to say is not as important as I use to think. My opinion on what's the best tire or trike is just that, my opinion, and not The Holy Grail. I have become more of a "Lurker" than a contributor. Lately, I find myself enjoying The Recumbent Trike Group on Facebook. It's filled more with simple people enjoying their new fascination with trikes. It's like the excitement of a child who learns how to ride a 2 wheeler. The point is as much as I still enjoy the ride I have lost some of that excitement. My next trip is GOBA and I am hoping to rekindle that fire.

Thanks Dave, I will miss you on GOBA but am looking forward to spending time with your ever increasing extended family.
