If bents go away; what will you do EZ? :-(
Hello EZ, I really enjoy your blog and visit it often. While I’m hoping this will never happen; I’m wondering if you have ever thought of what you might do, if recumbents ever basically go away? Signed Zimba
Hello Zimba, thanks for your email and a very GOOD question indeed! Sadly the way things continue to go in this crazy world, HPV (Human Power Vehicle) style of riding is in danger of going away and bicycle shops continue to shutter their doors at an alarming rate. I just hard of another long time shop up North that’s closing it’s doors. The worst part of this is that recumbent friendly shops will probably be the first to go to the wayside as they are clearly a rare existing species. The one thing I have always believed in (Through out my life) is always to have a plan B and even added ones after that. Should bents ever go the route of the dinosaur, I will (Though regretfully) embrace upright bicycling again. I truly enjoy all aspects of bicycling and not being able to get on a bicycle period; would NOT be something I would go through life without!
