Free thinker, lover of SCIENCE and skepticism. I want a more logical, sustainable, humane world for the future. I am into bicycling, astronomy, and sadly being a lawyer until I can escape and spend all my time bicycle touring.
Why are you here?
Google that great search engine brought me here when I typed atheist bicycler!! I want to spend time with people who are in tune with reality.
The religion you left
Why you left your religion.
Inability to reconcile at the age of 13 the fact that supposedly I had been, by a stroke of luck, born into the only true religion and all those thinking the same thing born elsewhere were wrong and going to hell.

Hi Allen, Just wondered how you are getting along with your new Volae? I have been riding quite a bit this summer. Even did a 102 mile ride on my Volae one day near Flagstaff. Adveraged 18 mph.
Hope all is going well. Dennis
I am currently traveling through Utah on a bicycle tour. Four of us have Volae's on this trip. They are always at the head of the pack. I think you will like it. Any questions you have feel free to ask. I will be back in Arizona and home on the 15th.
20 inch wheel don't handle dirt as well, They have a rougher ride and they are not as effiecient as a 26 inch. Having said that I have ridden thousands of miles on a touring recumbent with a 20 inch front wheel. I am planning on building a new one with two 26 inch wheels. The road in America seem to be getting worse and I am looking for a smoother ride.
Rans are not my favorite bikes a bit too heavy for the price. Short wheel bases are better climbers than long wheel based recumbents. A 40 inch wheel base is too short and tends to be twitchy. 45 to 49 inch wheel base provides the best ride, handling and still climbs well. You might want to check out the Volae line of bikes. The model they call the expedition might suit your needs. I have a Volae highracer and I think it is one of the best bikes sold today. It is very well built and has stood up to years of very hard riding. They also have a try it for two weeks and if you don't like it you can send it back, program.
Thanks for joining Cycling Atheists. I too loved to run but knee problems have taken over. The recumbent was a move I dreaded to make but now I absolutely love them. So comfortable and very fast. After a couple of years of training I could even ride with the uprights on long climbs. If you have any questions about recumbents I would be glad to discuss their querks.
