Where are all the New England bent riders? Still in hibernation?
I'm leading a ride on May 13th  from my house in Burlington.
If anyone's interested in joining me, contact me directly at thecanoe@comcast.net
I can't figure out how to post it on the Yahoo group

Hi Everyone-

My brother, who lives in northwestern CT, is interested in venturing into the world of recumbent riding, but I can't find a store in the area. He tried one at my house (in Portland, OR) and stayed fleshy-side-up, and so, he's ready to roll. Any suggestions where he can try one out in the area? There are bike shops in Kent, CT and Millerton, NY, but I don't think there are any recumbents anywhere. If you could email me at dangpoet@msn.com, that would be so very kind.

Thanks a million,
-Kate

Throwing this on kind of late.  This is a modification of a ride that Rich and a couple of other NH riders used to do on their Aerocycles. Not a hilly ride. More info can be found at the link below.


The 4th Annual Bangor Land Trust Road Ride will be Sunday, September 12th, 2010 on the Bangor Waterfront.

I used to live in the N.E. kingdom Vermont. Too bad I didn't ride with you fellas while I was there. The mountains are steep and you've got to be a strong recumbent rider to make it. I had a killer ride around end of August every year on my df bike. Start in town of Jay Vermont. Ride up mountain past Jay peak to about 3000ft. , descend to town of Montgomery. Follow valley road and then climb up to North Jay peak at 3800ft. Then descend back to town of Jay. Total 44 miles. total climbing over 7000 ft. I got my time down to 2hrs. 20 min. I'm going to go back one day and do it on Bacchetta although I don't think I can beat the time. Also, I think you would need a 24t up front gear to 34 in back to climb the extremely steep grades.

    Wow...2:20 is a damn good time for 44 miles and 7000 feet of vertical!  
 
   We are down in Florida for the winter, where almost all the climbing is 10-20 foot elevation gain overpasses.  I'll have to look up that killer Vermont course when I get back home to NH in June.

Here's another New England bent rider checking in.  I've been riding a Koosah for a few years now, and just got my hands on a very sweet Strada.  (Hi Geoff!)  I'll need a little while to get my Highracer legs, but I'm game for some group rides sometime.

Am I allowed in ? I'm 20 miles of legally being in New England  here in Albany, and the closest bent shop is in turners Falls. Maybe when I'm less broke I'll wander over

That's good, as It looks like I need a new rear wheel for my Strada (it has a vertical hop)

HI RICH:
I TRIED UNSUCCESSFULLY TO SEND YOU A MESSAGE YESTERDAY, MY ERROR.
I AM NEW TO THE FORUM. AND THE PROUD OWNER OF A 2010 CORSA. I PURCHASED THE BENT FROM SCOTT CHAMBERLAIN AT WHEELWORKS. I AM ALSO A GOOD FRIEND OF THECANOE, LARRY KORNITSKI. WE RIDE TOGETHER ON THE CAPE. LARRY AND SCOTT BLEED BACCHETTA BLOOD WHEN THEY GET CUT.
I DID TRY OUT SEVERAL OTHER BRANDS PRIOR TO SELECTING THE CORSA. BUT THE OVERALL SERVICE AND REPUTATION OF WHEELWORKS WAS THE FINAL DETERMINING FACTOR IN MY CHOICE. I HAVE PURCHASED SEVERAL BIKES AND OTHER SERVICES AT WHEELWORKS OVER THE YEARS.
MY BIO:
LIVE IN WEST HARWICH, CAPE COD
AGE 69
RETIRED SALES MANAGEMENT IN THE ELECTRONICS FIELD
MARRIED, 4 SONS, 7 WONDERFUL GRANDCHILDREN.
RIDE ABOUT 3000 MILES PER YEAR WITH MY TREK CARBON MARDONE
MOSTLY RIDE ON THE CAPE OR SOUTHERN MASS.
AM RIDING THIS WINTER IN FLORIDA WITH SEVERAL HIGH END GROUPS, 20MPH AND UP.
I AM STILL GETTING USED TO THE CORSA. LARRY HAS ADVISED ME ON ADJUSTMENTS AND "STARTS AND STOPS" PROCEDURES. I STILL FIND IT DIFFICULT TO START OFF. I LOOK LIKE A DRUNKEN SAILOR FOR THE FIRST 10-15 FEET. DANGEROUS. LARRY SAYS IT WILL GET BETTER,,, I HOPE SO!
I LOOK FORWARD TO MASTERING MY CORSA, IT'S SO DAMN COMFORTABLE WHEN I GET SETTLED IN.
REGARDS,
BERNIE MEGGISON

Hi Bernie,
Larry sent me an email about you being down in the Naples area at some point this winter. I'm in Fort Myers and we ride to Naples on Thursday. 54 miles at 20 mph pace. Good group of DF riders, tolerant of bents.
Right now I am getting ready for Sebring so things are a little hectic.
I also spend the summer on the Cape in Eastham, where I am dying to find someone to ride with up there. I will make more of an effort to hook up with you after Sebring.

Hi Bruce:
Good to hear from you.
We will be in the Cape Coral area for a few days. March 12-16th. Then either starting the trek north or staying in the Naples area for a few additional days.
I do volunteer bike work at Idle Times bike shop in Orleans Center. Something to get this old body and mind stimulated. It's fun working on bikes and meeting all sorts of bike enthusiasts.
Good luck at Sebring.
Bernie

Welcome, Bernie. I'm glad you are enjoying Florida. This summer the three Bacchetta's will definitely get together. Right now it's MTBing season. Weather is in the 40's with no snow. Best winter yet, considering it's New England.

Hi Larry:
In looking at the forums,and being a NEWBEE, I see many articles about Sebring.
It's about 2 hours away from us here in Fort Lauderdale. Do you think it would be something for me to rake in for a day?
Is there a schedule of events anywhere?

Huh? Terrible winter this year! Last winter was great. Cold, about 4 feet of snow and the X-country skiing was fantastic. This year .... nothing.



I do enjoy doing something different for a few months and have access to X-country trails from my backyard. Winter is the best time to be in the woods. I've only been out skiing once, and had to be careful of the rocks.

I agree with the part about being in the woods, but, I'd rather be on a MTB.
Where in New Hampshire are you?
