Like all good Googling sessions, I found this whilst searching for something completely different. A ride report from LegsLarry, explaining in superb detail why recumbents can climb with the best of them. Go and read it here, but make sure that anyone in the vicinity is aware that any subsequent muffled snorts will be due to humour rather than, say, inhaling a scone.
I’ve also made a few minor updates to ‘The Bikes’ page (clicky at the top, or here if you’re just to lazy to move the mouse all the way up there). Includes a lovely picture of the much beloved ‘ripping it up’ on the Raleigh Twenty.
