I have to admit, I've always wanted to try out a recumbent (one of those bikes you lie down on, rather than sit up on), to see what they're like and see if you really can go a million miles-an-hour on them. The only problem is that I don't know anyone with one.
However this morning I found London Recumbents, a bike hire place in Dulwich Park who hire them out. They also hire "normal" bikes and provide traffic-free park-area to practice on, which I imagine is great for those who are thinking of buying a bike, but haven't ridden one since they were 13.
I'll report once I've given one a try.
