Touring Metabike

ImageImage

Today I went for my first ‘dry run’ with panniers on the Metabike.  I was delighted to find that they had no impact of the balance of the bike – though as good as a recumbent is, it was not gravity defying so our Lancashire hills were a little harder with the load than without.  The Radical bags worked well and didn’t slip down at all despite being simply slung across the seat.  Putting the straps under the seat pad must have helped since they were then pinned down by 77 kg of rider :-). In May we will go for a four day ‘mini tour’ of the Yorkshire Dales with the addition of Weston Junior in his trailer behind.
