MidwestRally MidwestRally2MidWest Recumbent Rally:  NOT CURRENT The Hostel Shoppe will not be hosting the Midwest Recumbent Rally in 2019.  We have had a great run of 25 years, and would like to thank all of the vendors who gave their support, all of the volunteers who gave of their time, our hardworking staff, and most of all, the participants, who made this event great!

The rally was originally started as an event to learn more about recumbent bikes, but as the rally and the recumbent industry have grown and changed over the years, we feel we can better assist those new to recumbents, especially those wanting trikes and electric assist, on a one-on-one basis throughout the whole summer.

The Boys and Girls Club will still be hosting the Bike for BGC event, and Hostel Shoppe plans to help them with the routes for the event.  We invite all former rally participants to come out and support this great cause and ride the same great routes from the rally on Saturday, August 3rd, 2019.  You can also come visit us over at the Hostel Shoppe!  For more info on the Bike for BGC event go to Learn More>>>>>

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 ( 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. Learn More>>>>>
