This is a fantastic recumbent rally hosted by the Hostel Shoppe in Stevens Point, Wisconsin. About 350 riders on bents and trikes. Most recumbents you will ever see on the road at one time.

Weather is usually very nice in Stevens Point in early August, high of around 80 and lows in the 60's. The routes are on low traffic rural roads with some short steep climbs. There is an ice cream ride on Friday evening, various routes around Stevens Point on Saturday, and travel 15 mi. to Amherst for the "Super Tour" on Sunday. Amherst is a small town with fantastic riding on the various rural roads in the area. There is one killer steep climb on the Sunday route and various smaller climbs. The riding around Amherst has beautiful scenery.

Lunches are available on both Sat. & Sun. The Sunday lunch in Amherst is fantastic and highly recommended. There are a variety of restaurants and hotels in Stevens Point. After the morning ride on Sat. the Hostel Shoppe has test rides of various bents and trikes (including RANS) on Sat. afternoon. They will also have guess speakers from the recumbent industry on Sat. I know one is Paulo Camasmie of Catrike. Randy is such a good speaker I think he should make the trip to Stevens Point and do a presentation. :D
