    I have had an Ice Adventure HD for about 6 months but am in a catch 22 situation. I do not like to ride on single track roads as they are what is mostly available as I am not yet fast enough not to be a nuisance to everyone including myself ( if that makes sense). To get fit enough I have to use the same single track roads.
    Currently I get in as many miles as possible on mainland cycle tracks which limits me a bit.This under Creagan Bridge in Argyll.Not a cycle track but a quiet road round Loch Creran which used to be the main road north not that long ago. 99004BFF-67A0-4957-83D1-A2D53A05B8A6.png

    Recumbent rider for almost three years now. I have a Nazca Fuego. Will soon have a frame set to build my second recumbent. Will be selling the Fuego to make space for the new one. An Autumn project. Still have a road bike as well as a Brompton.

    On my yacht
    I’ve had my Demon LT recumbent trike for about 4 years now.
    It had a crazy dish shaped 33cc Sachs petrol rear wheel when I first got it and until recently it had a 3K Turbo 120v 100A electric setup fitted, extremely fast, stupidly dangerous, but more fun than a bus load of hookers, well, maybe not that much fun but pretty close.
    It’s back to original pedal power now with 75T chainring right at the front like a huge circular saw blade.
    Spent way too much rebuilding it so that it’s capable of on and off road, but I spend too much on all my bikes so nothing new there!
    Seriously running out of room on the boat now though so may need to let one of my bikes go, probably the trike even though it’s my favourite ride, but it takes up half my living room.
