High-wheels and recumbents

Martin Krieg climbing Hanover St. in Palo Alto, CA

A little bit back I rode with Faye Saunders and Martin Krieg on a leisurely pace around Palo Alto. I borrowed Faye’s Bike-E, she piloted her EZ-Racer, and Martin impressively demonstrated hill-climbing on an Eagle (shown above). The excursion was my first on a recumbent, so I was a bit nervous, but compared to riding the Eagle, it seemed a bit wussy. Believe it or not, starting on May 3, Martin is going to ride his Eagle across the U.S.

Watch Faye’s video of Martin on Hanover.

    maybe it's just me, but I think you've
    got the captions for the 'climbing'
    and 'descending' reversed.
