In just two weeks from now the first ride of Cyclefeast 2008 will have started! This year it has the subtitle 'trike recumbents week', but of course quite a number of recent recumbent trikes fold and/or separate, including my Trice QNT. The dates of the event are 4 - 11 July, and you can find out more on the web site I hope to see some of you there.

Pacific Reach test report

The Pacific Reach first appeared here in the UK some 18 months ago, but we have never managed to get hold of one to test. Now Karl Wooldrige, who recently bought one, has sent us an exceptionally comprehensive report on this interesting machine. Lthough Pacific may not be very well-knon in their own right, they make frames fro a number of other companies, and have several models in their range. You can read Karl's interesting report HERE.
