Saw Jess with Jane around Southbank on Sunday. They looked to be having a great time out and around the Brisbane River banks. The recumbent trikes certainly appear to attract attention out and about.

Hello everyone,

Jess's trike has arrived and we took it out for it's first spin on Sunday.  She rode from her home at Toowong to QUT Gardens Point where she works then on to Southbank for lunch.  After that we rode back to Toowong.  A round trip of approximately 12km.  She was pleased to get home but even more pleased to be out riding the trike …  you can see from the big grin in the photo.
