Recumbent tricyclists go flat out
WHILE most cyclists give a wave when they pass by each other, recumbent tricyclists stop for a chat.
Since December American recumbent cyclist Sylvia Halpern had been riding solo from Adelaide, up the East Coast of Australia, but now she's picked up a team mate.
Sylvia was pedalling towards Grafton last week when she ran into another woman on a recumbent mission, Jane Clarke from Brisbane.
The pair stopped for a chat and next thing you know Sylvia was on her way to Yamba to spend Easter with Jane's parents.
“Now it looks like I might have some company all the way to Brisbane,” Sylvia said.
Since July 2007 Sylvia has also ridden from Canada to Guatemala. Blog: www.crazyguyonbike.com/doc/myrtle.
