I love riding my 2 wheel cruiser bike in our neighborhood, especially this time of year when its not really hot. But, lately, my knee has been giving me fits. Something I’m not use to and I don’t want to stop riding my bike. The exercise is too important to me, but it seems I am having to figure out how to work out differently for my aging body.
The other day I was taking the dog on a walk and someone came by me on a 3 wheel type bike. He stopped to talk to someone and as I got closer I just had to find out about this “interesting” style of bike.
He explained to me that it was a TerraTrike Rover and he had to give up riding a 2 wheel bike for the same reasons I am concerned about. Aging and knee problems.Â It’s easy to get on and off and the idea of having a larger seat seems to be much more comfortable than a 2 wheel bike.Â And I think everyone knows what I am talking about.
He said it took him a few rides on the Recumbent Trike before he realized he enjoyed it much more than riding a 2 wheeler and that he could never go back.
I also ride with my dog connected to my 2 wheel bike and these Trike Bikes have a harness just for the same purpose.Â The more I read about these, the more I am interested and I know the dog will love it too.
I’m sure this will be the next bike I purchase to keep my body moving.Â What a great idea for the aging biker and for all you young ones out there too!!
