General Discussion / Why no Recumbents Bicycles in AC?
« on: September 01, 2005, 12:23:38 am »
       I'll wade in here with my 2 cents worth ..
 As you can see by my moniker I'm a bent rider as well .
 Honestly , can't stand riding a traditional bike anymore .
  I ride a Compact Long Wheelbase bent and I find that I'm just as safe on the road as I ever was on a wedgie . I use an eyeglass arm rear view mirror which helps my sense of security on the road as well ..
  In fact lots of folks smile , say " cool bike , where'd you get that ? " etc  and I have motorists honk at me all the time waving and giving the thumbs up in my burg .
  I won't win any time trials but that's fine 'cuz for me cycling is all about taking the time to smell the roses anyway ..


General Discussion / Hopping Freight Trains with a bike

Hopping trains in Winnipeg , Manitoba ?
 The comprehensive list shows Weston and Symington yards in Winnipeg but keep in mind that both yards have RESTRICTED ACCESS and are patrolled by security guards from both the CPR and VIA RAIL .
 They don't take kindly to what they consider trespassing on their private property .
