  5. Took a ride up to Waddington this morning,not that far from home but a good hill to climb on my way up there, took this pic of my trike (the jolly Roger) in front of the Falklands war famous Vulcan XM 507. This one half way down Waddington village hill, overlooking Lincolnshire towards Newark and in the far distance Nottinghamshire. Nearly back home now, Aubourn Church about 4 miles to go and the sausage cob I promised myself Hope you enjoy Rog

    Correct Den or as some recumbent riders call them "Upwrongs" as opposed to "Uprights" Rog

    My Bike rides

    Why thankyou Brew, I can and do ride an upright (DF) bike but the recumbent is more comfortable,can carry more stuff and I don't have to worry about balancing the thing when I go really slow up hill,not that there are that many hills around here Rog

    And he needs to have working arms for the steering, perhaps he has some balance issues,all the trike riders I ride with are able bodied with the exception of one who has a false arm with an attachment for the steering,besides that trikes are more comfortable than sitting on a narrow hard saddle like on a upright D/F bike plus you always have somewhere to sit when you pull up outside a pub Rog

    Not a classic in the true sense of the word more of a folly, six wheeled converted mini truck mixer Rog

    My Bike rides

    It's very rare to see a recumbent trike or bike left unattended but if they are they are usually locked to a fixed object using an extra long plastic coated wire rope and a stout lock,if ever I have to leave my trike I thread a long wire rope through the two front wheels and rear frame and wheel and lock that to a fixed object but I take your point about having no fixed object,there is a full discussion about securing these machines on a cycle website,some of the idea's people have come up with are quite interesting but the general rule is "Don't leave it unattended" Rog ps: the long wire rope coil's up to about the size of a coffee mug so fits in one of my side bags

    With the seat mesh coming in at £130.00, the front mudguards at £150.00, front wheels over £100.00 each,head/neck rest £75.00 the money soon adds up, they are not cheap to buy and the market for them is quite small so sold for parts is a lucrative little earner Rog

    Very nice looking trike, the stolen one will probably be broken down and sold as spare parts,such a shame,that one looks like the ICE adventure,should have secured it a bit better than just a wire through the front wheel because the wheels are very quick to remove,need to secure the frame as well, thanks for the picture Lizzie,nice machine Rog

    Keeping Fit

    OK all, What do you do to keep fit? I know I will probably regret asking this question but somewhere among the crazy Notts replies could be some useful tips that some could benefit from, even if it's just having a good laugh at some of the replies Rog

    The restoration so far,nearly there,all spokes made and in place,( 3mm x 500mm cold drawn steel,threaded with 5 BA die, cut to length 410mm)wheel trued (nearly) pedals made and fitted,(main pedal axle was 12mm x 100mm coach bolts,inner and outer main frame I cut and shaped from some 3mm x 50mm flat steel,had to buy some period looking rubbers,covered the coach bolt middles with some copper tubing to hide threads,clamped rubbers in the inner and outer plates using 5mm x 75mm stainless threaded bar and nuts)frame wire brushed and a good wipe over with an oily rag Halfords don't sell spares for these so had to make my own, great fun Rog
