Would you recommend a recumbent bike for riding?

Recumbent

It really depends on the type of riding you are accustomed to and the terrain you will normally riding. Pure road riders do not consider a recumbent bike to be a legitimate road bike. I disagree. Anything that gets you on the road is a good bike. Please note that you should find a recument that you like and can ride comfortably and feel safe on. Make sure to practice turns since this type bike may require a greater turning radius that a normal road bike.

If you have any more questions please write. Thank you

M.T. I ma not familiar with bent bikes. But I can tell you that it is very important that no matter what kind of bike you have; recumbent, road, mountain or whatever it must make you and the bike visible to traffic and people.
