HoT Recumbent Rally: February 27-March 1st, 2015 Website The Heart of Texas (HoT) recumbent rally is an annual rally held in Austin, Texas, home of Easy Street Recumbents. If it looks like something you’d like to attend, know that the dates have already been set for 2015! Plan to be in Austin February 27 through March 1. Here’s a description of the event:
The HOT is a 3 day rolling recumbent celebration. Friday is the Laid Back Social. This includes a Swap Meet (bring your stuff you don’t want/need for some horse tradin’ or to sell). We all bring snacks and have a pot luck snack. Bring a lawn chair (or use your rolling lawn chain ). We have test rides going too with some neat cycles to try. Will have neat gizmos for you to see/try. Don’t want to sit around all afternoon? A group who wants to MOVE loads up and goes to the Austin Veloway to ride around in circles. WAYYYYYYYY fun (http://www.veloway.com). Saturday morning is Recumbent University (Bent U). We have know-it-alls enlightening us on interesting subjects. Saturday afternoon is the famous HOT Rodeo!!! WOO HOO! Sunday we have the group rides. Divided up into 4 levels so the speed freaks can roll in peace and the slower scenic riders can take their time and enjoy the scenery. The HOT is not a “ride.” The HOT is a recumbent culture event meant to bring those who love the laid back lifestyle together to become friends and have some fun on their trikes and bikes.
