My recumbent has pretty fat tires (45 mm/1.75″ in the rear, 38 mm/1.5″ in the front) and does surprisingly well on poor pavement or off-road. I certainly wouldn’t use it for a mountain bike, but it is equivalent to an upright “gravel bike”. I tried it out on some gravel and flat off-road as well as poor pavement today and it did fine.
Today’s schedule called for easy day for the legs, hard day for the upper body, so I first did a warmup, then weights and resistance bands for the upper body, then went for my ride.
