Since the past 10 years, more and more people in Lincoln—also known as Star City-- are taking up cycling with more of an inclination towards recumbent bikes. Star City BMX President Scott Stanley is an enthusiastic recumbent bicycle rider and took up riding them 7 years ago. At the time, there was only one shop that sold recumbent, The Used Bike Shop. Stanley bought his first bike when he couldn't ride regular bikes anymore because of a ruptured disc and has not looked back since.
Stanley says that the basic misconception that people have is that recumbent are meant for older people because they have comfortable seats which let you sit in a reclined position and have 2 or 3 wheels. But this view is changing with younger people taking to recumbent. They pose less of a stress to your neck, back and knees and because of their aerodynamics, they can be ridden really fast.
So, if you’re looking for healthy, fun riding, you could check out the recumbents at your nearest cycle store and for some smart recumbent cycle wear, check out the range at www.benditcycling.com
