Anyone up for a race? Just 35 miles west of where I live is a small town where they have recumbent races. Here is a video highlighting some of the racing. I found it interesting that the tandems and the velomobile were not competitive at all. They got passed like they were sitting still. I thought the velomobile would be leading the pack followed by the tandems.

If I were younger I might participate in something like this. But, alas, I am now an old man and age has caught up with me. I am sure that this was a fun event for those who raced.

FREE GIFT awaits you!

  1. Embarrassing to share, but just flipped my new Terratrike Rambler while demonstrating the the improved turning-radius . . . . skinned the elbow and resolved in the future to not turn as tightly. Share this with the intent of advising other 87 year olds to bike prudently.

    Always look forward to delightful newsletter.

  2. Hey Steve thanks for the info on that. Really are appreciate knowing there is something good going on with Trikes in Indiana. How do you find out all the stuff anyway?!

    1. A fellow tadpole rider who is from that town contacted me several years ago inviting me to come there to ride my trike in an annual parade he and a few others ride in. He also told me about their recumbent races. He just recently posted this video on Recumbent Trikes Group on Facebook.
