FEBRUARY 23-25, 2018!!!
The HOT is on hiatus …
A message from Easy Street owner, Mike Librik:
After a lot of hand-wringing and brow-knitting I’ve decided to not do the Heart of Texas Recumbent rally in 2018. I’ve several reasons for this. We’ve been doing them steadily for 7 years now, and even a good thing requires a breather. This gives us more time think up fresh ideas for it. Also, I’ve got Rebecca working on a busy events calendar for the winter and into spring. I haven’t had this level of support in planning events before and it is nice to see my calendar filled like it is, but it does no good to overload her. This new “Glamping” idea is one I’d like to put through the paces. Lastly I’ve got some big projects that I need to focus on for the shop’s overall benefit, so I’m putting aside this annual rally project for this year. Enough dithering on the matter. Ain’t gonna be no HOT for 2018, so there.
Apologies to all who were looking forward to it. Stay tuned for fun, trikey events coming from ESR, where We Make Cycling Sneezy, or something like that.
That being said, we are going to leave the website for The HOT alone with all the information from past years intact so, if you were curious about this popular event, you can take a look. It will be back I’m sure. We would recommend the following in order to stay current with Easy Street’s events calendar:

Who knows what we will dream up next! Meanwhile, keep ridin’ and havin’ fun!
FROM 2017: Easy Street Recumbents’ Heart of Texas Recumbent Rally & Rodeo has brought a community of bike and trike riders together since 2010. Over 100 participants each year enjoy a weekend of family fun including: the Laid Back Social, Recumbent University sessions, a charity Raffle Drawing benefiting the National Stroke Assn., a Texas-style Rodeo with several events, a variety of recreational rides for every fitness level, people eating food, and whatever else we can think up.
In cycling, recumbents mean diversity and inclusion. Whoever you are, recumbent trikes and bikes give you access to the joys of cycling. You don’t even have to balance it if you don’t want to. Recumbents open up and invite you in. Easy Street’s Heart of Texas Recumbent Rally celebrates this culture and invites you to join in.
