RAGBRAI L Concert Series Announced!

Recumbent Convoy – Day 5

How about a recumbent convoy leaving Altoona? Meet at the Fareway for an 8:00 departure.  Let’s see how many recumbents we can get to ride from Altoona to Grinnell. There’s a link on the Bentrideronline forum:

The Fareway is on Broadway between 7th and 8th in Altoona.  Let’samke this happen.

two more in…

what about the theme song?

Sounds good to me too!  Only a dozen trikes last year??? People haven’t figured them out yet I guess – there’s no better way to travel. I’ll be the one on the Catrike Expedition with the skinny tires (and the Go Canada Go flag).

We all should each print up some business type cards to hand out to those bent riders we see along the ride.  “What?:  Recumbent Convoy  When?: Day 5 Thursday morning (Altoona to Grinnell) 7:30 for an 8:00 departure.  Where?: the Fareway parking lot Broadway between 7th & 8th Ave”  Print ’em up and hand ’em out!!!

So whats the chance that Lance will be riding a recumbent this year…


k7lro, June 30, 2011 at 10:59 pm

I’m guessing none.

Too bad for him.  He’ll wise up some day.

Longbike eliminator recumbent tandem will be around for the convoy

I’ll be the old guy on the red Sprint with the Nomad in tow…  can’t miss me! 

Oh and my answer to the question about Lance… “who cares!” 


thebentrider, July 5, 2011 at 10:33 am

Hepcat…are you hauling a stereo on the Nomad? 


twelvepackaday, July 6, 2011 at 11:51 am

I’ll join in as long as that free mason dude that rides a bent is not there.

Anybody know if the folks from petrosail are bringing their ship this year?  I sent them an email invitation but haven’t heard back yet.

Pianoman will be there!  Sounds like fun.
