Midwest Recumbent Rally

Just a few pics from the Hostel Shoppe's Midwest Recumbent Rally this last weekend. I wish that I would have taken more but it seems that i never do. Rode 15 miles on Friday, 60 miles on Saturday and only 28 on Sunday.

In order:

My Bacchetta CA2.0
One of the rest stops on Saturday
A Tree-O of highracers
Cruzbike Vendetta V20
AVD Hypersport

Youtube has several videos from the rally on line now.

Is there any report of just how many riders showed up?

I heard 150 or so. I think it's been down the last few years from a high of 250. This was my 9th rally in 13 years. Trikes have really taken over.

I have been to one MRR. I think all bent riders should get to one. If for no other reason than to see all the different bikes and trikes available. Nice rides too!!!!!!

Haven't made it out to this rally but did make one of the last ones that RBR held in State College. Shame that they stopped as it was good to meet other riders & see the variety of bikes/trikes everyone was riding.

My wife and I made at least three RBR rallies, maybe four. Good rally with good people.
