Rode the lovely Greenspeed Magnum today.  I do love that girl.


I’m amazed at the comfort of the seat & the overall comfort+smoothness of the ride every time I take her out.  If you’re in the market for a recumbent trike & don’t want the additional weight or cost of suspension, Ian Sims’ ingenious “suspension” seat design paired with a set of cushy Schwalbe Big Apple tires might be just the ticket.

She sure served me well on my 2nd NYC Marathon, my 1st Lone Star Bike MS & Ride Ataxia Dallas – where uneven pavement, gravel-strewn roads & patches of sand attempted to thwart me (and did trip up many other cylists) on the hills, twists & turns of the Texas Hill Country.  She even handled rain & wind!  And, did I mention? Her turning radius is to die for :0)


Best of all, she’s not a picky or high-maintenance kind of gal.  The Greenspeed Magnum loves to go anywhere & everywhere.


Bryan Ball, editor of Bent Rider Online did a great review of the Magnum; you should check it out.

I’m training for the SanDiego Tri Challenge!  Can you believe it?  This will be my first triathlon since MS came-a-vistin’ to my life.  I’m raising funds & awareness for Challenged Athletes Foundation, an organization devoted to making a difference in the lives of folks with illness & disability who need our help to enjoy a more active, independent, wild-&-wonderful life.  Like this guy, JJ.


Wanna make a difference?  You could pass on my story & donation page:  email, Tweet, Facebook post – anything you can think of to spread the word would be an enormous to help to me.  And, more importantly, to CAF :0)

Here’s where you can donate to my San Diego Tri Challenge adventure.  And you may read more about my motivation for this ride & the marvelous Challenged Athletes Foundation in my previous blog post.
