ok how do you find a club or group?

I went to my LBS and they havent heard of any bent clubs or groups but see them from time to time. gggrrrrr where else does one look? is any one here from Manhattan KS? i did get a smile from a roadie as i waved at him thats a first normally if they even notice me they look at me like im some freak of nature that might be carring the plague... cant get to close to that... owell even if any of them where friendly they go to fast for me anyway. I know there are other bikers around seen a really cute gal pass me today be fore my bike went to pieces id love to have some other bent riders to see my beast and give me thier thoughts on what the hell im doing wrong, owell not like i can ride with them now at least for a bit

Try a post on www.bentrideronline.com forum. It is a bit more active than
this forum for bents. A post on the usenet forum accessible through Google
www.google.com -> groups -> alt.rec.bicycles.recumbent will also address
a somewhat formless forum. Approach should be circumspect as careless posting will result in heavy spam. Steve

Also, try going to the websites of recumbent clubs from other parts of the country (like Bent Trail Riders in Ohio) and check their lists of links.
