Question:
I am teaching an Environmental Science course and we are studying alternative transportation methods. Would you have any sources on recumbent bicycles that we could consult?



Replies:
Here are some recent articles in popular magazines, which I found using Iowa State University's on-line Readers' Guide:

"Pedal-Powered Slot Cars for Future Commuters", Popular Mechanics, January 1994, page 13

"Pollution Solution", (Human powered vehicles) National Geographic World, April 1994, page 4-7

"Bike Buying 101", Bicycling magazine, February 1993, page 48-9

"The World's Fastest Bike", Popular Science, October 1993, page 78-80+

"Cycle City 2000" (deals with 4-wheeled recumbent bicycles) Bicycling magazine, March 1992, page 52-4+

"Easy Racer's Tour Easy" (Easy Racer is the company name) Bicycling magazine, March 1992, page 130-1
