Recumbent trikes are becoming one of the fastest growing segments of the cycling industry….and for good reason. From Portland to Savanna, the rail-trail movement is sweeping the country. Over the past few years, trike materials (yes, we do like our titanium) and technology have improved dramatically. And with low maintenance components like planetary gear systems, drum brake hubs, and electric assist, convenience and ease-of-use are at an all-time high.

The proof, as we say, is in the pedaling. Here’s a sampling of some top-notch regional and national cycling resources to get you started on the great sport of recumbent triking.
