As I approached from behind, I noticed the unusual cycling motion – the normal lower body cycling cadence combined with an upper body hand cycle motion. But on a single two-wheeled bike? Yep. Mike loves to ride his “all wheel drive” bike along the Legacy Trail, often choosing it for longer rides instead of his traditional road bike. “The front and rear drive eight-speed cassettes operate independently, so I can pedal with just my legs, or just my arms, or both. I like the full body exercise this bike https://twicycle.com/ gives me.” I asked about the chest pad on the bike. “That’s what gives you leverage for hand cycling. I tried removing it and quickly found I couldn’t do the hand cycle motion.”
I am always amazed at the diversity of trail users, the individuals and their equipment, I meet along the Legacy Trail. Happy trails, Mike, and thanks for sharing your experience with this unique bike.
