Welcome to RecumbentPDX

New to Triking?

Begin the Journey!

It’s all about Joy!

Cycling is about much more than just transportation.  For many folks, our first taste of freedom coincided with the arrival of our first bike and, as adults, we’ve continued to share that Joy with friends, spouses, children and grandkids.

Sometimes, though, age, injury or illness makes traditional biking impossible.  Recumbent trikes remove those barriers and bring back the Joy!  Whatever the reason, we can finish any sentence about riding trikes with, “and they’re fun!”

Why A Trike?

In this video,  Mel remembers a youth filled with cycling freedom and Janet explains how triking brings that joy back into your life.  Trikes offer

  • Three wheel stability, so balance is not an issue at slow speed -or even stopped!
  • Comfortable seating that takes pressure of shoulders, neck, wrists, hips and knees -not to mention, ya know- your SEAT
  • Ease of entry and exit for folks with limited mobility
  • Compatibility with an electric motor -to double your joy
