Several years ago when I started riding my first recumbent, (Over 17 years ago, Summer of 2000). I was really out of shape. As a matter of fact the first time I rode My BikeE I could not ride 1 kilometer with out wheezing and coughing for an hour later. But within a week or two I rode 17 km ( 10 miles) to Leduc from Calmar. I was elated.
Now 15 years later here is what I look like:
This a more recent photo of how I look these days and almost 80 lbs less. I attribute this to cycling and a good carb reduced diet! And most importantly on Riding Recumbents! They are so comfortable and fun to ride! I shudder to think of what I would look like today if I had not started riding recumbents back then. I know my wife and family are glad and do not regret the money I have spent over these past 14 years.
With 16 + years of riding Recumbents of all sorts and over an average of 1500 kilometers a year commuting, Losing weight , getting Fitter, Touring and riding around the Edmonton & Western Canadian/ North Western U.S. Area. We have gained a great Knowledge base to serve our Clients Needs and Wants! I believe that riding a recumbent and or a trike is so life changing I now have the privilege with RENU Cycle to introduce others to riding and Trikin`!!

Our groups rides always has fun and is definitely not for the "Hard Core" riders it is recreational in nature and for fun. We do have a ride on Mondays that is more for pushing your limits. They ride at a much faster pace with few stops.
