Riding uphill

In general, delta recumbent trike has no gearing equiped. It is powered by pedals directly on the front wheel. It is more difficult to ride uphill, especially if you are not trained and your legs' muscle are not strong enough to do it in the early period of riding. It unlikes conventional bicycle that you can stand on the pedals and push them with your body weight, but depends on your legs' muscle only, as you are lying on the seat. Of cause it is not an disadvantage if you aim to traing your legs. On the other hand a recumbent trike with gearing is nice to have.

Frequency of use

It is recommended to select recumbent trike of simple design, say the one with no gearing or less gearing steps, if you do not use it frequently. There is no significant difficulties if you use it only on flat roads.
