[Disclaimer: This item was posted on April Fools Day, 2017. It is not to be taken seriously, though, perhaps, half-seriously. The rack and the trike are real and not Photoshopped. The trike is a Terratrike (perhaps an older Tour) and the rack is based on HP Velotechnik design.]

Catrike has resolved its production issues for the eon-green color and is now producing recumbent trikes in this color again.

Catrike has discontinued its popular Hyper-yellow and Eon-green colors due to supply issues with the green powder-coating ingredient used in both colors.

HP Velotechnik offers electric recumbent trike options for most trikes models using Shimano STEPS motor system.

Shimano has entered the e-bike market with its STEPS motor system, and HP has adapted this system to most of its recumbent trike models.

Registration for the Wine Country Century is open. Usually a number of BARC riders (BARCers?) do this ride. The ride is limited to 2500 riders.

Come on out and ride the Coyote Creek Trail (CCT) then afterward, if you like, ride (or drive) over to the Hellyer Park Velodrome to participate in and/or watch some recumbents race on the track!

Sorry for the late post. The last two years I was able to organize a space for BARC and participate in a pre-ride, but my brass concert season has prevented it this year.
