Two commuters, five wheels

When in a car, other people around you are traffic. When on a bike, they're potential companions for the ride home from work.

I counted eleven lights on the trike. Recumbent riders tend to be clutter bugs.

Interested in hearing your thoughts regarding the safety of the laid back approach to cycling...every time I see one of those I fear for the rider. How can they have good control? How can auto's and such see them? How can they get out of them when they arrive wherever they're going?

Bobby et al.— I wonder about the safety of recumbents, too. It's one of the things I talked about with the above photo guy. He said motorists tend to give him more room when he's on a recumbent than an upright bike—presumably because motorists mostly have the same doubts and fears as you and I regarding recumbents.

As for getting out of one… that's a good question.
