The Silver Comet Trail [above] is located 13 miles northwest of Atlanta, Georgia. It’s free of charge, and travels west through Cobb, Paulding, and Polk counties. This quiet, non-motorized trail is for walkers, hikers, bicyclists, rollerbladers, horses, dog walkers, and is wheelchair accessible.

The Chief Ladiga Trail [below ~ loads a PDF ~ slow] is Alabama’s premier rail-trail. It is located in Cleburne and Calhoun counties, in east-central Alabama.

Jennifer LangJennifer Lang has joined ‘BentRiders Online [BROL]!  Made my day!!! It is interesting the path that life’s event can take. It was not my motive to inspire a BROL membership [although I’m very happy], but to acknowledge a cyclist I admire.

Thanks Jennifer!!!

Mike RahmingLike Jennifer earlier, Mike also asked to be my Facebook friend. I accepted of course. As you see, he also rides a recumbent bike. This one is a short wheel base high-racer from RANS ~ a  Force 5. Mike’s strength as a rider shows in this photograph.

Because I perceive him to be a strong, aggressive rider [the kind I want to be when I grow up], I feature him.

Mike is a Navy Diver. Given my knowledge of history, that is also IMPRESSIVE!

Mike ~ Navy DiverLike many others, Mike has a blog. Within that blog you will see Mike’s family and friends.
