Greenspeed recumbent trike

March 2011, with the help of the BT benevolent fund I finally ordered A Greenspeed recumbent trike From Australia, Please see the link to their web site. The reason for such a change from solo Cycling to a Tandem is to reseeding eye sight , I am registered as blind as I have lost over 80% of my eye sight mostly from the centre of my eyes. I am still managing to ride solo with my Club the west Middlesex CTC see links. However it’s getting near the end and I’m getting ready for the time it will be too dangerous for the solo bike witch I will miss greatly as losing the independence just to go and get lost for a few hours on my own, or go touring with a tent around the UK. The Tandem will give me the tool to keep my cycling passion alive and my social life ticking over. My good Friend Adrian is the main Pilot / captain However it’s been modified by Greenspeed to take a large range of riding sizes for whoever wishes to take me out. I could not have achieved obtaining this tandem without BT and the charities BT contacted on my behalf. And I had one member of BT staff donate towards it thank you. And a big thanks you to the guys and girls at Greenspeed. This is a web site of its birth and journeys, of what I call my Thunderbird 2, in photos.

14th Jan 2012 9am 3 Degrees at least no Ice on widescreen!!

Adrian ( Capitan ) Heeded off to Richmond Park, as the Tandem had not been there before.
Nice crisp sunny day, really good cycling day sun out all day.
Total trip miles 37 Miles, not bad legs good, had to do a few touch ups at Home, painted the bottom of the frame where we bottomed out last Saturday, it was not to bad as it had not broken the pain only the surface, then deserved bottom S&S coupling was not tight! Then played around with right wheel again as it was still not right, however I think I have it now as it running as free as the right one now, will have to see what its like after to Sunday ring tomorrow.
