Today I watched my Mr. ride this. Seriously, one of the coolest things on earth. It is awesome. It has tons of gears and he FLYS on that thing. Finally, something that can satisfy Matt's need for speed that he can actually do. It's a big deal.
Our subdivision is really hilly. So, it's fun and a good workout. He steers and breaks with his hands down by his waste. The gear shift is on the right handhold which has taken some getting used to. Matt's right hand isn't very coordinated, but he is getting the hang of it. This recumbent trike is so good for him. He gets to exercise his body, feel the wind on his face, break a sweat, use his stiff muscles, and go fast. Who would have ever dreamed he would be doing something even close to this 4 years ago? My man is a miracle.
It is so exciting that we have something we can do together, that isn't frustrating for either of us. We always used to be outside, on the go, with some activity or another. It is one of the things I miss most. I am so excited to put the miles on, riding all of the fun paths around here, toting our little ones behind us.
It was hard to get a good shot, because he really was flying. Go, baby, GO!
