Recumbent Bikes Offer a more Comfortable Option for Riders!

If you've been noticing more recumbent on the roads lately, it’s because more and more people are switching to this far more comfortable option. You've also probably heard recumbent fans talk about how much they enjoy riding them and that they’re putting in more miles.

The most important practical point is the distribution of your weight. In a regular bike you’re placing all your weight on a very small total area such as the little diamond seat, the handlebars under your hands and the pedals under your feet.
