I was beginning to think you had decided to put a quick lejog in on the way home.User3143 said:Hello all, finally got home last night at 2200hrs, coming out of Bluewater why I did not jumped on the A2 I will never know.
I ended up on the A206 heading towards Woolwich after a couple of wrong turns (don't ask ) I spent the best part of two hours riding in circles around South East London.
However I finally found the South Circular and then the A2 and it was all good. Had no trouble flying through the middle of London and over Westminister Bridge seeing The Houses of Parliament lit up and the Millenium Wheel was a sight.
Past Buckingham Palace round Hyde Park (not as bad as I thought it would be) then up Park Lane onto the A5, A41 then home.
The Expedition was way faster than I thought it would be, was quicker up hills then I thought and demonic going down them.
I ache only a little bit this morning in my legs and only a very slight ache in my left knee. Me thinks my first bent ride should not have been ~60 miles.
Over all I'm very pleased and later on this afternoon will put my computer and airhorn on, and go out for a gentle 5-10 miles. Then gradually build up the miles over the coming weeks/months. I also have some lights on the trike just don't tell them lot over on commuting
The only problem with that analogy is that wheelie bins don't generally ride along / keep up in traffic. It would be unrealistic to expect a car to overtake another car and expect to see a wheelie bin keeping up in the gap between the 2 cars.con gibbens said:I saw the following on a blog somewhere and now use it myself when confronted with the "you can't be seen on a recumbent trike" remark.
" When I'm on my trike I look like a wheelie bin that's been blown into the road - would you fail to see a wheelie bin and drive over it? Of course not!"
