About the Rally

We have laid the 2017 HOT to bed.  I think a great time was had by all — and nothing could make us happier!  If any of you still have photos or videos to share, please do so!  Post them, or send them to  Rebecca’s email address

In the meantime, save the dates for next year: 

FEBRUARY 23-25, 2018!!!

We have changed nothing else about this website at this time.  We have left all the 2017 information on here — just so new folks can get an idea of what all goes on at this event.

And, we will let you know when news about 2018 starts rolling in.

Who knows what we will dream up next!  Meanwhile, keep ridin’ and havin’ fun!


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.

  1. My name is Timothy Smith my wife Debra and I started recumbent trike riding a little over a year ago. We live in Houston Texas we are interested in your rally. Please put me on your email list and let me know when the rally and recumbent bike rodeo is in 2017 where ect.
    Thanks Sincerity Timothy Smith

    1. Timothy- there is a Facebook page called Texas Recumbent Riders. Info about our local events are posted there. We just rode Spring Creek yesterday.

    1. I will add you to our email list, David. In this way, you will get all the news. If you would email me at culture@easystreetrecumbents.com or call me at 512-789-4118 and give me your city, state, zip code and maybe even your primary phone number, that would be great. Sometimes I will announce events or rides to people who are in a particular geographical location. Regardless, I will add your email to our list.

      1. And, David — are you going to register for the 2017 HOT? We would love to have you join us there and it’s a great place to meet up with others who might become possible riding partners throughout the year, or who you might at least see at other riding events.

  2. I would love to be on your emailing list. I’m a beginner and would to join a beginner and am looking for a really good, friendly, and helpful riding community.

    1. One of these days I’ll do the probably-trivial work necessary to get Easy Street News subscription as easy as it should be, but until then I’ll just sign ya’ll up. Welcome aboard, Eduardo.

    1. Taking it “easy” is what we are ALL about! So glad you are coming. Have you spread the word up there in the cold north? We keep thinking this is a great event for those who are looking for warmer climes in which to ride.

  3. This will also be my first time. I bought my recumbent trike about 6 months ago. Looking forward to connecting with fellow bikers.

  4. Rebecca, it seems to me the 2017 Rally schedule is spread over several webpages. Can you provide a summary schedule for the 3 days, highlighting all activities and their times/locations? A pdf file that can be downloaded and printed would be great! Thanks

      1. OK, I see it now. I was clicking on ‘SCHEDULE’ then immediately on one of its dropdown menu selections. If I click just on ‘SCHEDULE’ then the summary is there! Thanks.
