Rather sit back when you ride a bike?
An Austin bike shop that sells recumbent bicycles – two or three-wheeled bikes on which the rider leans back in a supportive seat with his or her legs extended in front to pedal – will host a celebration this weekend.
The Heart of Texas Recumbent Rally 2017 will include the Laid Back Social, Recumbent University sessions, a charity raffle drawing, a Texas-style Rodeo and recreational rides for every fitness level.
Recumbents are used for casual riding around the neighborhood, on paved trails, for racing, touring or off-road exploration.
The event is scheduled for Feb. 24-26 at Easy Street Recumbents, 5555 North Lamar Boulevard. Cost is $65/person and includes all events, including lunch Friday and Saturday
