You are here
Bay Area to AlphaBENT
Directions to our recumbent trikes showroom from the Bay Area
We are located on the northern edge of Downtown or even Midtown Sacramento.
Amtrak takes you from Richmond (on the BART Red Line) to Sacramento on the Capitol Corridor train.
The shop is less than one mile from the Sacramento train station. Here are walking directions and a map.
Greyhound: The Greyhound bus stop is on Richards Blvd, quite close (only 1.2 miles) to the shop. However, that direction from the shop is a world away and a walk from the Greyhound terminal goes through a rough neighborhood. We recommend getting a ride.
MegaBus: Megabus runs a very inexpensive shuttle from San Francisco in the heart of the Bay Area. The MegaBus terminates in Sacramento near CSU Sacramento at the 65th Street Light Rail Stations. Here are directions to get from the Megabus bus stop to AlphaBENT.
We are at a major interstate hub. We are near the junction of I-5, I-80, CA-99, or US-50. From San Francisco, it is very efficient to take US-50 to the Capitol City Freeway. It brings you into Sacramento past Raley Field and the Gold Bridge.
By trike or bike
When you get close to Sacramento, there is a causeway just west of West Sacramento with exclusive bike lanes. Here are directions to the shop by bike if you are on bike travelling from the Bay Area.
Catrike has discontinued the venerable Road recumbent trike model.
Face-time with ICE. Ask all of your questions. Find out what happens behind the scenes. And, try trikes, trikes, trikes... including the fully automatic ICE Adventure electric trikes.
An inexpensive hitch-mount rack for folded recumbent trikes. For example, the ICE Full Fat big-tired adventure tricycle.
Azub will be at AlphaBENT on Wednesday, October 23 to show the latest Czech recumbent technology. Come to for test-rides, and bent-talk.
Catrike has made wider hubs with through-axles standard equipment on all large-wheel models. This change affects the following recumbent trike models: Expedition, 559, Dumont, and 700. The change promotes laterally stronger wheels and prevents movement within the dropouts under load at the expense of compatibility with equipment such as electric hub moters that are designed to the older 135mm dropout widths.

Join Kyle and Team FARA to kick this debilitating disease!
Virtually new, ridden less than 15 miles. 24 speed, tadpole style recumbent trike. Includes flag, mirrors, combo light and mounts, seat bag, chain guard, speed and distance computer, water bottle cage, rear rack, trunk pack bag, bike pump, safety bell, and cover. Bike has knee saver adapters installed on cranks. These can be removed. Very little wear due to knee and back injuries. Trunk pack bags are not in the photos but include a main bag that sets on top of the rear rack and panniers on both sides that fold and zip closed when not in use.
Original cost $3000 + $55 cover.
This new hyper-yellow Catrike 700 is one of last 700's produced in this color.
The eye-catching color is best described as a dayglo or tennis-ball color and it contrasts well with the black highlights of the rest of the trike.
