Although I've been out of it for many years, I have a history in bicycle road racing, but am new to the recumbent trike sport, and have to say I LOVE IT!
I was wanting something new, and didn't want to be "just another biker" and this CERTAINLY is not a main stream area.
I live in a small central Illinois town and I am probably the ONLY one any around here has EVER seen! I certainly get lots of smiles and waves.
I've had my Rover a little less than a month but have put over 200 miles on it. Being retired, I am able to ride every day, so unless it's raining, I'm out touring the cornfields.
It IS rather difficult to find stuff for it, as there are several area bicycle shops, they don't carry anything for recumbent bikes/trikes, so I have to plan day trips to Chicago.
I have to say, this is my new FAVORITE page to spend time!
