What the Heck is The Laidback Bike Report?

Recumbent bike riding is about people. Bent riders have cool bikes, go to interesting places and have fascinating stories to tell. That’s the basis of the Laidback Bike Report. Sure, we’ll talk about bent issues and news. Yes, we’ll take a look at hardware and have tips and tricks you can use each month. But our show is built around the interviews. We will continue to get the personal side from recumbent folks adventure riding around the world. We will delve into the minds of industry leaders, shop owners, and event organizers who are hoping to attract your attention with their wares. We’ll ask them to turn their cameras around and show us their surroundings, facilities, or latest prototype. This is how we hope to make our show worthy of an hour of your precious time every month.

We do this broadcast live so that we can see your comments and have your questions answered on the spot. This is an interactive endeavor and is not complete without audience participation. Please join us every month as we bring you our very best attempt at the Laidback Bike Report.

  1. This seems to be as good a spot as any for my question, because I am not the one for electrics..My question is this what headlight does the laid back bike report suggest as an outstanding bright light headlight that gives you your moneys worth and lasts a long time before batteries need to be charged…?
