Last week I also cleaned up my other recumbent bike, a flevobike bike. Most important: clean the roller brakes completely to make them, you know, work. A functioning brake is pretty high on my list of requirements :-)
This morning I took the bike out for my morning’s commute. In the lowest of the two seat settings, so pretty aerodynamic but slightly harder to get started from a dead stop. WOW. An almost 25km/h average including stops. Instead of the 20km/h I did last week.
Wonderful morning and evening sun on the landscape both ways. A joy to behold. Commuting is fun this way! And good for my condition.
