I *think* I could alternate DF/trike days but yesterday, my calves were so cramped, it honestly looked like my calves were "cut" you know, like a bodybuilder? I had huge holes/dimples, insane. I've found resting for a minute or so and some energy chews does the trick.
What kills me though, is it was 94 yesterday so I had a 6" turkey from subway on post. I did this on purpose for the sodium, yet I still cramped!
I can't ride a DF very much the past few weeks, my left arm/hand has gotten so bad I can't hold on. I'm thinking of modifying an old Avenir bar-end I have to see if I can make an arm rest.
Omni, funny you say that, I saw a little girl on a tricycle on the boardwalk and as I pulled up (I was on the road) I said "Hey, I like your tricycle!"
She didn't get it, but the mom and dad got a really good laugh at it.
It seems most people are afraid to pass me, like it's a wheelchair/mobility device. Doesn't bother me any, I'd rather they wait and take a wide berth than get buzzed.
Leafy- I know what you mean, from what I have been reading, it seems most ONLY ride their trikes on MUPs. That's fine and dandy, but I prefer commuting as well. Besides it cost me $58 to fill my Jetta with regular
Glad I don't have my Merkur anymore, that required premium!
