New Book Featuring 1400 Mile TerraTrike Adventure
TerraTrike is being featured prominently in a new book by author Bill Freed titled "The Pacific Coast by Recumbent Trike - The Journey Is The Destination"
"I’m not sure exactly when it happened, but at a very early age I realized that bikes are bitchin. What I mean by that is that any machine that multiples your ability to move across the earth under your own power without damaging or destroying it, is pretty groovy. . . .Although there were a few breaks here and there, my love affair with bikes continued throughout most of my adult life. Coinciding with my love of bikes was a love of the coast where I spent the majority of my adult life. The two (bikes and beaches) go well together. . . .In retrospect, it almost seems like destiny that I would end up on a long bike ride down the West Coast, and that is exactly what I ended up doing with my good friend and riding companion, Jim Park, in the summer of 2010. . . .This book is about an adventure that took place over about a month and a half with a background that was constantly changing and all this from the perspective of what amounts to more or less a beach chair that moves -- enjoy the ride.
