ComfyBike Project: The 5 Boro Bike Tour Tandem Trike

written by JerseyJim on January 20, 2015 in Projects with no comments

Today I received a great birthday present. My friend Patty gave me a registration to the NYC 5 Boro Bike Tour. This is an annual New York event and something that I’ve always wanted to do. Reservations¬†for the tour usually get snapped up quickly so we’re both really fortunate to have snagged a spot. The only thing better than riding in this tour is sharing the experience with a friend. This is going to be great!

Now we both have recumbent bikes, but I was thinking that this would be a great opportunity to start a new project. Instead of riding the tour on separate bikes, wouldn’t it be cool if we did it on the same bike?

I’ve had the Atomic Zombie Viking Tandem Trike plans for a while now and just haven’t gotten around to building it. The NYC 5 Boro Bike Tour is the perfect incentive for me to get off my butt and get it built. I’ll document the entire process here and you can join me for the journey. Hopefully it will end with a finished trike rolling down the streets of New York City a few months from now.

Regardless of the outcome, I also hope that this project will inspire you to take on a project of your own. Stay tuned for updates.
