Fort Stevens Trike Ride (FSTR)

A new page just went up, under SteveStuff, then Steve’s Trike Expeditions. This page is being developed into the 2014 overland journey, which will be taken on Wild Child this time around. The shortened version of this year’s journey is FSTR, which is somewhat appropriate, because if you simply add an ‘A’ and an ‘E’ to the initials, it provides my expectation of travel time compared to my prior trips, due to the trike I’ll be pedaling. Click HERE to visit the fledgling page, which will grow by the end of August, after the conclusion of the adventure. Join the fun – register today for the 2014 Recumbent Retreat at Fort Stevens State Park! Camp and share with hundreds of trikers.

  1. Steve don’t forget there are at least 3 Trike Trips at the Retreat over the weekend. You have your choice of 15, 25 & 45 mile rides plus the rides locally into town & the Light Parades at night. Although my mileages are estimates I think you could add another 65 miles to your trip total if you wanted to.

  2. My plan is to take the ride around the Youngs River area, which I have not thoroughly explored before. It is the ‘Green Flag’ ride called Wandering Waterfall, and is about 40 miles. Other than that one on Saturday, I plan on hanging around the main camp area to visit with everyone and get plenty of photos for TA.

    I’m sure you’ll have lots of fun with “Wildchild”.
    Just out of curiosity the 700’s appear to have a higher bottom bracket, is this at all noticeable or possibly problematic ona longer ride?
