Midwest Recumbent Rally Press Release

The Hostel Shoppe will not be hosting the Midwest Recumbent Rally in 2019.  We have had a great run of 25 years, and would like to thank all of the vendors who gave their support, all of the volunteers who gave of their time, our hardworking staff, and most of all, the participants, who made this event great! 

The rally was originally started as an event to learn more about recumbent bikes, but as the rally and the recumbent industry have grown and changed over the years, we feel we can better assist those new to recumbents, especially those wanting trikes and electric assist, on a one-on-one basis throughout the whole summer.

The Boys and Girls Club will still be hosting the Bike for BGC event, and Hostel Shoppe plans to help them with the routes for the event.  We invite all former rally participants to come out and support this great cause and ride the same great routes from the rally on Saturday, August 3rd, 2019.  You can also come visit us over at the Hostel Shoppe!  For more info on the Bike for BGC event go to https://www.bgclubpc.org/bike4bgc .
