Vladimir Halaburda’s 54th Velomobile

This must be our day to feature the Ukraine… Oleksii sent us this a while back and we’ve been saving it (because, believe it or not, some days there just don’t seem to be two stories out there that seem like an interesting post. We appreciate it enormously when you folks let us know when [...]

Android by Jozef

Occasionally, someone comments that a lot of recumbents seem a lot the same; basically “variation on a theme” sort of thing.

Things won’t get any better from here on out… So to do something nice, I thought I’d reduce the cost of the Member/Partner program here on ‘BentRider Online.

I will NEVER complain about the trail again…

ICE Trikes Facebook page had a link to HimalayabytTricycle.blogspot.com and their post last August entitled “Cycling in the Afghan Wakhan – Is there a road somewhere?” I can see why they asked… the trail seems a trifle sketchy.
