I am a COPDer and fan of the recumbent trike as a superb way for us to exercise; gain muscle for optimal ability to breathe….since muscle utilizes oxygen better than flab.

I will bring one of my trikes tomorrow if anyone is interested and please note that I do not sell recumbent trikes nor benefit from anyone else selling them.

Hope to see you tomorrow!
More later… Sharon O’Hara
