Yesterday I did the first (short) ride of the year on my Trident Stowaway trike. Despite the cold it felt good riding again, but my legs are gonna need a lot more work out rides to become recumbent legs again. For now: easy does it, the rest will come!
First ride of the year on my Trident Stowaway trike.
Might take a while before I've got my recumbent legs I guess...
One of the first additions to my new trike are 2 headlights. At first I was wondering about choosing battery powered lights or headlights for a hub generator. But on my other bikes I have Busch & Muller headlights on a dynamo hub and I very much like the amount of light and the dispersion of the light. So I went for the same headlights on my trike, but this time powered by a usb powerbank.
Cycling is one of my hobbies. Riding a bike, maintaining a bike and tinkering on a bike. However, since January 2014 my cycling went downhill (in the bad kind of way!). Due to broken toes, bad back, bad legs, etc... I hardly got on the bike. This meant that my physical condition deteriorated to, not to mention my motivation for cycling. And finding motivation again is one of the hardest things.
Early december my site was moved from one server to another as the hosting company was taken over by another. Moving the site didn't go quite flawless it seems. Checking my site after the move and the database of my wordpress site was completely empty! No posts, no replies, no settings for site or plug-in's.
As some of you know, I like vintage bicycles. You've probable seen some photo's of my 1973 Flandria come along here, on my timeline on twitter or PedalBuddies. If not, let me introduce you to this old belgian bike:
Cycling, it's a big and important part of my life. From my first hand-me-down tricycle to the commuter/touring bike I've assembled myself and the vintage bike I've saved from the rust demon and oblivion, there have always been bicycles in my life. It's the riding that went through several changes over the years.
