For Autumn Views: A Recumbent Bike!
October 28, 2013

It might be silly to buy a bike just for the views, but maybe not...

A regular bike keeps your head tilted toward the ground and you have to lift your head to see the sky. An upright city bike doesn't have this feature, tho. Well...with a recumbent bike your head is naturally inclined skyward and you have to tilt your head down to see the road. So if it's a time of year when you might be enjoying the skyview -- like autumn when the trees foliage is on fire along the roadsides -- and arching over the road -- well, then, a recumbent bike ride gives a most joyous view!

I took a little ride around our local block on my 'bent and snapped some pics and even took a little vid as I coasted down into our local river valley. Vid at my Outyourbackdoor YouTube acc't: www.youtube.com/watch?v=vP6XfabGBLA.
