I've been in Long Compton for a year now, Kazzaroo. Recently retired, and busy exploring the Cotswolds, amongst other things. Firstly it was on my swb Lee Cooper 'bent, but more recently on my ICE RS. Loving it. Would enjoy meeting up.
I live just south of Bristol and am new to recumbent riding having just bought a used Ice Trice QNT, but was thinking of entering the Awdry 60k Audax in September are either of you up for joining me?
Wonderful thought, and I'd love to. I've entered sportives and audaxes on the trike and thoroughly enjoyed them.
However, just at the moment I'm on crutches with a cast on my lower leg. I had a full hip replacement last July, which hasn't "taken" and it's still inflamed to the extent that walking, climbing the stairs and sleeping are all painful. It's possible that the surgeon will have to go in again and install another joint. But when that will be I don't know, and until it's fixed (one way or another) I can't get down into (and up from) the trike, let alone exercise the inflamed joint.
In addition, I've had an ankle fusion (hence the cast). This is going well and I may be walking without crutches in a week or two.
So, I've not cycled for a year and my legs have become like matchsticks!! I can't predict when I'll be back on the road, and then I'll have to build up my fitness again. I
Please do revisit this idea in the future. I'd enjoy the company
