“Beating the high price of gas”
Claude Haton/Hudson Catskill Newspapers
Suzy and Tim Larkin take time out from their ten day, tandem recumbant trike trek near Leeds Tuesday to chat with a reporter. This is the tenth year the Larkins have embarked on a journey, which takes them from their home near Ithaca N.Y. to New London, Conn., where they board a ferry for Block Island to visit with family. They keep a blog about their journey called ‘Have trike, will travel.” The trike, produced by a company called Organic Engines out of Florida, is collapsible. The return trip is made by auto with the trike tucked away in the trunk and is completed in about 10 hours.
Corrections: (Because I got to read it before I sent it) It’s a 12 day ride (including rest days). It’s our 12th trip. We don’t have family on Block Island. It was kind of Claude to stop us and take our picture!
