His patience was amazing as he moved pedals and handle bars every few minutes. He also spent a lot of time jogging along side anyone new to recumbents until they could get going.
There were plenty of other options to try, like folding bikes.
Electric bikes, cargo bikes...
I saw both kids and adults riding in the front of that one and they all looked like they were having a great time.
You can see in the background that they also had some bikes for the youngest riders to try.
The tandems had a lot of interest. They also had just regular bikes so people could try a fixed gear, single gear, step through or other more common options.
There were unicycles of just about every size imaginable. Those were for the more adventurous in my book. Or at least for the less balance-challenged among us.
Finally, they offered the Port Authority bus rack demo stand so that anyone could take a minute to learn how to operate them. They really are simple to use, but there's a real awkward moment when you're standing in front of a bus load of impatient people trying to figure it out for the first time.
Thanks to everyone that brought their bikes out so the rest of us could have some hands-on with something a bit different.
