Type 1 diabetic with neuromuscular issues, spinal nerve damage. My legs aren't as strong as they use to be. I really miss riding. I had a Two wheel recumbent but sold it after issues becoming light headed. I'm dreaming of a recumbent trike. I've had a semi recumbent and was comfortable, but I'm wondering if a fully recumbent, pedals higher than my butt, would give me better use of strength. The only issue I had with recumbent two wheel was my hands going numb and my arms hurt holding the high handle bars. I like the grips low so my arms are more relaxed.
So which one makes better use of leg strength or should I say which one lets me ride longer and climb hills better, semi recumbent like pics I've seen of the Rover or the feet higher like a Sportster? My town has a GreenWay Trail and not far is some Rails to Trails, so I'm not near vehicle traffic if I get weak and have to rest. I've dreamed of one of these for so long. I try to go for walks but can't make it far. With a recumbent, I can go for miles not having to support my body on my legs.
I'm 6', 220. I appreciate any advice.
