I never think of myself as a snob, but then I got to thinking about biking.

 

I flat out love biking on my basic 1950s era “2 wheeler”.  The type on which I learned to bike ride way back when.  

My problem is that where I am everyone bikes, but many pedal tricycles and the sight of a man wearing a helmet tooling along smoking a cigar on a tricycle rankles me. 

Somehow a woman on a tricycle doesn’t bother me as much.  

I’m Old School for sure and I suppose I’m just a snob!

    Balancing is a major benefit of riding a Tricycle and transporting cargo as well. I never rode one but I guess the appeal is being able to do more while riding.

    Total snob - ha ha ha. Not everyone is as fit as you are.

    As you put on more weight and get older, tricycles become more of an option. You see this a lot with motorcycles as well. I guess riding, whether on two wheels or three is better than not riding at all.

    Fred. Let go of it. Be secure in the fact that as you pass a tricycle, it probably won’t stumble and hit you.

    I am with you. I too am a bike snob. But what bothers me is the packs of guys dressed in brightly colored spandex on their racing bikes that hog the roadways. LOL. Being a mountain biker, I think that people who use bikes strictly for exercise (rather than to get places) should keep to the woods and enjoy nature.

    My brother has a three wheeler. I know it's good for him to get exercise but I cringe when I see it. Am I that shallow?

    Enjoy your 2 wheel ride as long as you can. But 3 wheels is better than just sitting on your rear end without moving.

    Three wheelers? A revelation to this super-annuated pre-retiree rooky. A preview of things to come without doubt. Reminds me of the Oracle of Delphi in the Greek play Oedipus Rex: “What has four legs at dawn, two legs at noon and three legs at night?”

I seem to remember that, back at Syracuse U, you were a member of the Sigma Alpha Mu Corvette Club, or desperately wanted to be, because you were trying everything you could to impress this really pretty girl..I think her name was Joanne Davidson

If they move the 2 wheels to the front it will look like a motorcycle. Will that help you. Also remove the cigar. Even though women smoking cigars is sexy!
