And they are not more dangerous, on the contrary.Cheers.
I'm still only toying with the idea of a recumbent. They do look pretty cool, and also seem a lot of fun to ride.
My wife is unconvinced - she thinks they are more dangerous than an upright, but I don't see why they should be.
I don't buy that, what if you are hit from the side?
When cars overtake me they give me loads of room. What has happened is that drivers in cars going the over way have looked at the bike so long that they haven't seen that the car in front has stoppedmachew: You live in a bad neighbourhood, around here the cars always give me a wide berth and generally don't try to overtake me in the same lane, so trikes are safer for cars over here. However I remember my days as a two-wheel cyklist, it was sometimes real scary in around cars.
