This group was started because, in 2009, two people got interested in cycling as a recreational activity and decided to make recumbent bicycles their ride of choice.
At first, we found the closest Rail Trail, but then realized the fact that there are great biking opportunities all over the place!
We soon became aware that they were a little "different". One DF cyclist chided us with the remark "that looks like a birthing chair." We realized we had the last laugh - at a "rest stop" we walked past the chider while he hobbled to the bathroom, looking like HE had just had a baby :-)
Yes, we have been bitten, we love the speed of the open road as well as the tranquility of the trail. The only thing that makes either ride more fun, is sharing it with friends.
Thus, we begin our quest - to see how much fun we can have, how many miles we can go, how many different things we can see, with our best feet forward!
We will plan events that are great for new riders, families with younger riders, and social rides, as well as rides that are a bit more aggressive with the opportunity to work on endurance, technique and speed. Each event will include some time to relax and have fun with members of the group.
Many events will be in the Washington DC, Maryland and Northern Virginia area, but we will also plan events that are weekend (maybe longer) adventures that will include some hotel stays and/or camping.
