Recumbent Cycle Con 2011

On October 21-23, the first annual Recumbent Cycle Convention was held at the Los Angeles County Fairplex in Pomona, California. The master mind behind this grand recumbent showcasing is Charles Coyne, publisher of Recumbent & Tandem Rider magazine. Below are a video (by cinematographer Trike Boy) and photographs (by Steve Greene) from this event. Click on any photographic image below the video for an enlarged version. Another video with Neil Selwood of ICE appears below the gallery. A write-up of the show will appear here later.

This video by Trike Boy was taken at the Recumbent Cycle-Con demo area, where you could ride any number of many recumbent cycles, both three and two wheeled:

A word from Charles Coyne, producer:

The first annual Recumbent Cycle-Con Convention & Trade Show was held October 21, 22, & 23, 2011 at the Pomona Fairplex, in Pomona, California. This was an exciting event for the recumbent bicycle industry and recumbent bicycle enthusiasts.

The Fairplex is located just thirty miles east of downtown Los Angeles, and was the ideal location for the recumbent industry and enthusiasts to gather.

Public hours on Sunday, October 23 provided the opportunity for excited recumbent enthusiasts and the interested public to see the newest recumbent bikes, trikes and accessories, and test-ride bikes in the Demo Ride Arena.

2012 Schedule:

The Pomona Fairplex will again be the location for the second Recumbent Cycle-Con Trade Show & Convention, October 26, 27 & 28. Visit this site regularly to keep up with all the developing news.
