archival and resource material for human powered recumbent tricycles

Road Sights

Sign, sign, everywhere a sign – Blockin’ out the scenery, breakin’ my mind – Do this, don’t do that, can’t you read the sign?

This page is dedicated to showcasing 332 photographs of the sights overland trikers will see while out triking across the vast expanses. The images below were taken on the Coast to Cactus Tricycle Expedition in 2011, a 980 mile recumbent tadpole tricycle journey from the central Oregon coast to the Mojave Desert of southern California, and show what a trike gypsy can see while on the trike, thus pictures of the trikes are generally missing from this gallery. To see all the photographs from this expedition, including the trikes, please visit the Trike Gypsies website.

Drivers won’t make hamburger out of you!
