I can’t ride a conventional bike, but there are benefits. But, what to call it??

It’s taken me a while, from a deep low, but I’m now always trying to get lemonade from what’s first-seen as lemons.  Granted that this a somewhat unconventional ride, I don’t get saddle sores, but it’s made worse by the fact that I don’t know what to call it!   Technically, it’s a tricycle, but whenever someone hears that term, they think of something that little kids ride, that’s kinda slow.    When I ride this, I wear clip-in shoes, like fast-bikes wear, and I’ve reached 42 km/h as my max speed.

However, based on what’s thought when someone hears the term, they expect something like this.

I think that using the correct term “recumbent” is best!  Because if someone hears it, and knows what it is, excellent,  but if they don’t, they’ll ask!  There isn’t anything that would come to mind, if you don’t know the term!
