On our way to Nottingham last Sunday (taking daughter back to uni), we had the good fortune to spot a recumbent coming down the hill by the Savoy cinema in Nottingham (Derby Road?). Hardly ever see them in Derby where we live. It was about 11.20am and the recumbent was one of the hand-cranked type. Lovely machine! That's one steep hill, and I imagine a handful whichever direction you are tackling it in. Chapeau!
