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
PLEASE DO NOT CALL BEFORE 6AM ON SUNDAY!!!

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 annual Great Finger Lakes
GFLBT, hosted by the Southern Tier Bicycle Club STBC,
has drawn many of us back again and again over the last 15 years.
The popular RBR rally in State College, PA is worth checking out.
The 5-Boro Bike Tour in NYC is bent-friendly.

A ton of other great rides are also available through the Rochester Bicycling Club.
It is not a requirement that one be an RBC member to participate in the club rides
(although it is certainly encouraged and appreciated).
A calendar of club rides is available through the club's website at:
