Riiiiiight up my alley!

So, at the Stone Arch Art Festival, I met a guy who had built a kit to convert two recumbent bicycles into one tandem side by side vehicle, with a cargo platform, sunshades and other cool stuff. I got to check out his vehicle (and sit in the seat and put my feet on the pedals, though we were in a big crowd of people and the seat was so not adjusted for me, so I didn't much ride it around). Better yet, he sells them!

I also found out from him about the Minnesota Human Powered Vehicle Association!

http://www.mnhpva.org/

I think I want to go to the next monthly meeting and find out more about such nifty things! Wheee!

That page for mnhpva.org seems to be broken. I don't think it's your link, though. It sure does look like fun, though.

I did a little digging on Ebay. I think I need to check out some bikes at that next monthly meeting, if possible.
