Its taken over a year.
Searches, contacting people, asking questions, and saving up...
But finally... it has happened!
We took a road trip to Nottingham after speaking to a nice chap on eBay, and bought his trike.
I call it Ligia's "beginner" trike... or "Training" trike. Something to get her use to the idea of recumbents...
It was a steep learning curve for someone who has never used a trike, and barely used a normal bike!
But overall she loved it!
"Weird and wonderful" were her words to describe the contraption.
On hills its a different sensation than a normal bike... but we can get used to it...
We have been testing the trike in the rough environment around where we live.
It is FAST!
You have to lean right over otherwise you can fall out! (I haven't fallen, and Ligia doesn't travel fast enough to feel the G forces that I feel! hahah)
We loaded it up just to see what it would be like.
You cant see it in the photo below, but our daughter is in that trailer!
The trike is going to go through its paces, and we will use it to the best of its abilities - while it also tests ours!
We have some time ahead of us before we set off... So training will continue...
Now, if only we could find a way to cushion the seat better for Ligias back... then we would have a winner!
Until next time!
