Ever think about trying out a recumbent bike? Recumbent bikes are ones where the rider sits lower and behind the pedals, almost like what you'd get if you cross a chaise lounge with an exercise bike.
Recumbents are good for people who may have back/shoulder problems which makes sitting hunched over a bike in a traditional posture problematic. Also, the recumbent bike typically has a wider, more comfortable seat that is shaped much like a regular chair, which can alleviate any problems a person might have with backside soreness. For all these reasons, a good many recumbent bikes are the preferred choice for cyclists who use them on extended tours.
Here are a couple of videos of recumbents in action:
- Tandem recumbent bike rolling through the woods
- Wild ride on a recumbent through the Alps down Col de Braus to Sospel
