archival and resource material for human powered recumbent tricycles

Bob and Jan, trikers in New Hampshire

I just received a nice letter from a couple who are really getting into trikes:

Dear Steve,
My husband and I have been enjoying your emails. It seems that many of the stories that we have seen are from individuals in the west or south. We would like you to know that there are at least 2 of us from New England that have been having a blast on our trikes. We finally hung up our bikes, one recumbent and one hybrid, this August and have been riding in New England, although casually, every chance we get. Here in NH everything is either straight up or down except along river valleys, with little or no shoulders. So, we have been trying out rail trails, many unpaved, and road routes that we choose carefully. We have been having the best time for numerous reasons. Sadly we hung up the trikes last night as the weather has taken what appears to be a permanent turn into winter.
So here’s a happy shoutout from NH.
Best Wishes – Bob & Jan Bromley

    Hello there Bob and Jan, I don’t know which type of trike you are riding but I’m sure that with a set of knobbly BMX style tyres you could still get out for a ride provided you’re wrapped up for the weather. Our November temperatures haven’t fallen too far to date here in the UK. When they do I will be fitting MTB/BMX tyres to my ICE ‘T’ and will send pictures to Steve. You could always shell out for one of the latest BIG wheel machines but then you’d have to find a storage place for it next spring. I recently got sent a picture of a triker who rides his trike through the snow and if I can find it I’ll pass it on to Steve.

    Bob and Jan, you are an inspiration. Sharing these stories encourages me to do ever more triking.

    Another NH triker here, in the midst of the Whites. Nothing “flat” here!
