Here comes the recumbent rally!

If you're on your way to our 2009 rally, you have plenty of reasons to be excited.  Here's what's going on this weekend:

  • Two speakers at the pre-ride gathering. One to discuss his trans-US tour, the other to show his homebuilt folder.
  • Finally rideable Aergos.  Yes, TWO!  One built around a Catrike with a BionX and the other built on a Hase Kettwiesel. No, we haven't talked about the Kett fitting at all yet. Rally goers will be the first to see it.
  • A fully assembled Carbent carbon fiber bike from BentUp Cycles. You'll forgive us if we relegate this one to "ogling only" for the weekend.
  • Rides with 60 other recumbent enthusiasts.
  • Dinner, music, and conversation Saturday night.
The weather situation is looking stable. Cloudy skies until 3PM Saturday and partly cloudy on Sunday.  If that holds, all will be well.  It might get a bit rainy during dinner, but the same happened last year without dampening spirits.  Possibly, perhaps, due to the consumption of spirits.

And if you can't make it to the rally, we're going to attempt to go a little media crazy this time around.  If all works well, we'll get those presentations recorded and posted for everybody else to see.  And if you know me at all, you know there will be plenty of photos to chuck into our rally gallery.
