Riding with the Wife

She tagged along! Not only that, but it was her idea to ride trikes yesterday! I've alway wanted to take her down that hill through Golden Gate Park and this time she did it! Too bad she was in front b/c I would've liked to see her trike grin as she sped through the wind. 

It's a bit of a rarity to see other recumbent trikers in the City, but we found a couple riding their Greenspeeds! Since they were heading in the opposite direction, we only waved hello and continued on our way. Coming back though, we saw them again and pulled over to have a chat. I think his name was Russel. 

In the middle of the conversation a cyclist rides by and shouts, "Can you guys pull over? You're in the bike lane!" He was wrong. 

Nope, there wasn't a bike lane there at all. We were in the parking lane. No cars, but indeed it's a parking lane nonetheless. I see cars parked there all the time. I'm all about bike lanes and pushing for safety, but like all the other freaks in the City, entitlement becomes a bit of an issue.

  1. Hi I was looking into a "tadpole" recumbent and I was wondering a few things about using them in the city. Can you take the recumbent on the amtrak? and how about the BART? How is visibility (to cars) in the city?

  2. Hey, very nice site. I came across this on Google, and I am stoked that I did. I will definitely be coming back here more often. Wish I could add to the conversation and bring a bit more to the table, but am just taking in as much info as I can at the moment. Thanks for sharing.
