Welcome to the Website for Rochester NY's informally-organized group of recumbent enthusiasts.
Our unwritten charter is to promote and advocate recumbent cycling by gathering together for informal group rides, and offering interested cyclists an opportunity to meet and talk with us about "bents", see these machines on rides, and possibly try them out on short test rides.

On the last Sunday of every month from April to November, starting at 6:30 AM, we'll offer the 17-mile "Hell-Bent for Breakfast Ride." 

It starts in the parking area off Clinton Ave. So., where Clinton crosses the Canal.
Contact Cliff Weatherell, (585) 737-7815 or
Mike Brisson (585) 721-2031

We carry on the breakfast riding through most of the winter, trading our recumbents for mountain bikes and studded tires. Get in touch with one of the organizers if you'd like to be kept up-to-date on weekly destinations.

The highlight of our season is the RARE2K rally!!

The date for 2014 is 
Saturday, June 14.

This is a link to all of John's photo albums on Shutterfly. You'll want to Search on "R2K" to find the albums related to the rally. There are albums of photos going back to 2002. It's well worth the little bit of bother. John's got an excellent eye.

For more information, contact Dave Larson or Mike Brisson.
