archival and resource material for human powered recumbent tricycles

To all Hurricane & Fire Trikers: Update us – RE: your safety

This request also goes out to all cyclists, including those with four wheels (quads) and two wheels (bicycles). Please let us all know your condition. What has happened to you and the area where you live? Are you still home? Have you evacuated? Was your human powered vehicle used during this time for any reason? What are you hearing?

With the southeastern region of the United States and the nearby islands being slammed with monster killer hurricanes, and the northwestern region of the United States burning fiercely due to lightning strikes and teenager misconduct, these weeks are quite disturbing for many folks who live in these regions, as well as for people in general. Many have been killed, many more have been injured, and more yet have been evacuated to temporary shelters from the winds, rains, floods, storm surge waters, towering forest flames, heavy ash, and extremely hazardous smoke levels. Not a day goes by that is not filled with news about the disasters occurring on a regular basis.

So, readers of Trike Asylum would like to hear from those cyclists affected by any of these catastrophic events. Please comment to this post, telling the area where you live, what you have experienced, what your immediate future looks like, and anything else that may help us in understanding these deadly and maiming calamities. Thanks for taking the time for the update! We all hope all is well with you! Be SAFE!

    I stayed in my home during hurricane Irma’s forceful wind blown a rain of debris throughout our community.. I lost a little piece of my carport but thankfully it landed in my front yard.. Other than that heavy rain filled all the lakes within our community, and it crested to 3 or 4 feet above the roadways..! There was no injuries thankfully and it seems that I was 1 of a few people who actually stayed in their home as I have done… And nothing a novice to hurricanes should try, leave it to someone who has past experience with hurricanes and no the signs of trouble before they happen..

    I was at my home in Spring Texas for Harvey. 28″ of rain but nothing on the house! Many others not so fortunate, its been devastating for them. Trikers and cyclists on the northside of Houston have lost access to one of the best 30 mile trails in the Houston area, Spring Creek Greenway. Until further notice it is closed due to being washed away in multiple places. The official rainfall for the area was 52″ over 3 days. The Florida Panhandle where I also do a lot of triking was not affected too badly, light rain and a bit wind…thankfully but thoughts are with our S. Floridian brothers and sisters who took a direct hit.

    Thanks Nick, and glad to hear that you are equally unharmed as well, and my heart goes out to all the brother, and sister bent riders who lost a great trail, and hope it will not be as badly as thought when water recedes to normal levels when everyone is ready to go back out and ride….!
