As we wait for the snow to melt, it"s a moment to understand and appreciate the corner of my living room. This is a picture of my Gekko, folded. Safe and warm, not covered in snow. To say that I'm eager for Spring to return is an understatement.
One of the things about the Gekko is getting it into the house, after it is folded. I had reassured T before he left the house that it would be no problem, "I'm a determined woman." Well, as I think about our first trip into the house, it took every ounce of determination I had. Lifting it up one step at a time was doable, but out there on the edge of my comfort zone. I did get the job done.
It really is true. I am a determined woman. I need to treasure that, as I work my craft, and work on getting some additional articles published.
Thursday was an amazing day for multiple reasons. Clearly, the weather was amazing. A gift of a Spring day before winter returned. I took delivery of a new tricycle on Thursday. I now have a HP Velotechnik FX 20 Gekko. I bought it from New York City Recumbent Supply. Thank you, thank you to Robert for his patience, while I worked the my process. to get to this point.
Thursday was amazing. I rode a total of 8.6 miles, partly because my GPS malfunctioned at one point and I went round and round in circles. Very comfortable.
The best thing about the Gekko is that it's housebroken. It folds. It is, right now, parked in a corner of my living room, not outside in the snow that has returned to haunt us. Where can I go to complain about it being really too cold to ride?
Why three wheels?
My name is Robin Brown. This is a picture of my "magic carpet." When I'm at work it's probably parked at the commuter rail station about a mile from my house. I get to ride three wheels because my right leg doesn't like to show up for work. I flunked riding two wheels.
