Recumbent Ride Weekend with camping

Fellow Rvers... A Xenia OH recumbent cycling weekend is up coming.

The camp area of choice in this area is the Greene County Fairgrounds.

Contact The Greene County Fair, Xenia Ohio

I will arrive Friday afternoon.... hope to see you there

Fri. 9/20, Sat. 9/21. Sun. 9/22

We have planned three great rides that we are sure you will enjoy.

Objective: Ride, socialize, have fun.

Format: "You Show--You go."Meaning that you are "On Your Own."
We expect that you will be a reasonably competent rider, that your trike will be in good mechanical condition, and that you will be self sufficient.

Safety: Please wear a helmet and ride in a safe manner!

Time: Each day, we will meet at 9:30 A.M. and ride at 10:00 A.M.

Distance: All rides will be in the 30-35 mile range.

Conditions: All are paved trails, mostly flat, with some very limited time on the roads.

Pace: These are casual paced, social rides, typically 10-12 mph.

Place: We will be starting from a different location each day.

Friday 9/20 Meet at: Xenia Station, 150 South Miami St, Xenia Ohio.
N39 40.808 W83 55.849

We will ride the Little Miami Trail south to Corwin. From Corwin we will ride the road (briefly) into Waynesville for lunch.

Saturday 9/21 Meet at: Carillon Park, 1000 Carillon Blvd, Dayton Ohio.
I-75 South exit 50B, right on Springboro, right on Arbor Blvd, right on Carillon (Located at Carillon & Patterson)
N39 43.788 W84 11.944

We will ride The Great Miami River Trail south to Franklin, returning to Miamisburgh for lunch.

Sunday 9/22 Meet at: Taylorsville Dam, Taylorsville Metro Park.
I-75 North, exit 63 to U.S. 40 East. Follow 40 a short distance (turns into Brown School Road) then turn left into the Metro Park. Park on the south side (right) just before you cross the dam. (South Park)
N39 52.458 W84 10.006

We will ride the trail north through Tipp City, continuing to Troy for lunch.
There is a climb over the dam just as we depart, and again, just as we return.

What kind of bent do you ride. I have a Catrike Villager II and my my wife rides her old Bike E.

Love the trike, but it is a pain to haul.

We rode that trail on regular bikes last month. Loved the area. I'd like to know more about the trikes and how your transition went from a bike. My husband no troubles, but my lower back gives me issues after 10+ miles on a regular bike.

BUSY... I found that both the two wheeled recumbents (RANS VREX and RANS Rocket) and the trikes (tadpole type and delta type) were all easy for me to fall in love with. I moved quickly from the two wheeled cycles to the trike and quad models and gained more comfort and even more enjoyment all for similar reasons to that you have already mentioned. I ride about a 16 -35 mile segment before my body lets me know that I am approaching the comfort limit. I have pedaled a max of 60 miles on my trike per day on a Florida Key's ride a few years ago....and a few 50 milers.... but distance is not my gig. Just out to enjoy myself and get some fresh air.
'BentRider Online

is a great place to get information on recumbent riding

is where I bought my cycles.
