Now I ask ya … what guy doesn’t appreciate curves? No, I am not talking about feminine curves. I am talking about the kind shown in the image below …
I have never been one to enjoy monotony. I hate doing the same thing over and over. I need and thrive on variety. Working on an assembly line is not for me. That is just who I am. While riding my trike I very much dislike riding on a street or trail which is straight. I mean … boring! I truly appreciate it when this was taken into consideration in trail planning. Here is an example.
This short section of trail was going to be built to further take the trail onward. It could have been laid out in a straight line but they didn’t do that. Instead they purposely made it with several curves in it. You may not be able to tell it from this satellite image but it can be a bit challenging, especially if one’s speed is sufficient. It involves leaning into the turns. It can be all one can do to stay on the trail. I love it!
There is nothing boring about riding this. It will keep you wide awake. Yep, I love curves and some hills versus a straight flat surface such as many rail trails are. Our original trails were built along our three rivers which, of course, means that they curve around quite a bit. And they have some hills as well. We have newer trails which I do ride, but they lack the curves and just are not as enjoyable to ride.
Some of our trails go thru city parks and they usually have curves in them as well.
I have never yet fallen asleep while riding my trike although it is comfortable enough I probably could, especially if bored enough. So keep those curves coming and I will do my best to stay awake.
KEEP ON TRIKIN’
