The Ground Hugger XR2 recumbent bicycle was recently developed as an in-house project. It takes the idea of lifestyle impacts on energy demand a bit farther. We’ve seen how a sort of "purist" attitude can become a mindset and get people turned on to certain activities. I n the name of fitness, people run until they drop from exhaustion with no actual destination in mind. And smart, educated folks like us do manual labor, like weightlifting and rowing stationary machines, without actually accomplishing anything, other than feeling and looking better. Today, cycling enthusiasts pay $2,000 or more for high-tech bicycles that provide little real additional benefit in actual performance - once you break the $1000-dollar price barrier. Most of the appeal has to do with the pleasure of enjoying fine craftsmanship and beautiful design, and getting turned on to a sort of mental image of what it means to be part of an elite group - to sort of wear the image. So with the right practical support and innovative product design, it’s easy to envision that the idea of combining fresh-air fitness with the need to go somewhere could become the "in" thing to do. It just wouldn’t be cool anymore to use a ton of hardware to travel three miles to work. These are mindset challenges that can be influenced by product design and marketing messages.

42. Decavitator
History, specifications, manufacturing methods and other information related to a human-powered hydrofoil.
Decavitator Human-Powered Hydrofoil
Check out the videos , brush up with the hydrofoil basics , or go to the table of contents for a complete listing of documentation. Please see the reading list for aero/hydro dynamics references. On 27 October 1991, Mark Drela pedalled the human-powered hydrofoil, Decavitator , to a world-record speed of 18.5 knots (9.53 meters/second) over a 100 meter race course on the Charles River in Boston, Massachusetts. In the spring of 1993 the Decavitator team was awarded the DuPont prize for the fastest human-powered water craft. This prize was to be awarded to the first team to break 20 knots over a 100 meter course, or to the team with the fastest speed on record as of 31 December 1992. A Little Background Information... The trek to the world record flight began in 1988 as Daedalus team members Marc Schafer and Bryan Sullivan returned from Greece. At that time they decided to build a human-powered vehicle (HPV) that an armchair athlete could operate. Marc initiated a student-run project (under MIT's Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program - UROP) with funding from the MIT SeaGrant program. When the $25 000 DuPont Prize was announced in 1989, the goals of the project changed and speed became the primary objective. For the rest of the story, see the history page.

Human Powered Vehicles
Personal development extends beyond the 8 hour work-day at WSM . Engineer Chris Clouser invested nearly 1000 hours of his personal time developing and building this exotic HPV. The skills he developed during this project will be invaluable in serving WSM customers. Engineers at WSM are encouraged to pursue personal projects in order to enhance both theoretical and practical skills. Many of the parts on this vehicle were made by Chris in WSM 's in-house prototype facility. Few companies remain where the engineers are able to spend time in the shop. We feel that it essential that our engineers be able to exhibit a practical side to their design abilities in order produce an easier-to-manufacture and more reliable product. This extreme machine is a recumbent, four-wheel drive, four-wheel steering, independent suspension mountain bike. The vehicle weighs about 50 lb depending on accessories. It has anywhere from 6 to 13 inches of travel depending on shocks and mounting configuration. It is a working prototype which exhibits the function of several innovative new concepts. Several aspects of this vehicle are still under development. Equal length A-arms were chosen for their ability to perfectly control camber throughout the entire range of travel at degrees of roll (body roll being minimized by rider technique). Bump steer has been accounted for, and the steering is a near perfect Ackerman. Caster, camber, and toe is fully adjustable as is the seating.

Australian National Pedal Prix The Australian National Pedal Prix is a competition where teams design and construct a human powered vehicle (HPV) and test it for a 24-hour period under race conditions. The HPV is mechanically similar to a bicycle - the driver sits in a seat and uses pedals to move it along. In addition, there are some hybrid vehicles in the competition, which also contain an alternate power source, such as an internal combustion engine or a solar powered electrical engine. The HPV isdriven on a bitumized road surface, and is seen as a viable form of transport for people seeking a healthy lifestyle.

When you think about riding bikes, does it really rock your boat? Is there really anything that excites you, or gets your juices flowing? Well, probably not, if you're thinking about the typical bike. I'm talking about that bike that almost everyone has hanging from the rafter in the garage. You know the one I mean. The same one you have, and your neighbor down the street, that you get out on Memorial Day, July 4th or Labor Day for a quick spin around the block. Then it's back to its well reserved place hanging from the rafter again. Why is that? Aside from the fact the seat is usually uncomfortable after about 15 minutes, and that the legs are not in real good shape, it's possible there aren't many other reasons. So the key word here is… comfort! Right? Come on…admit it! If it's not comfortable what's the fun in that! So what's my point here? I thought you'd never ask.

Human Powered Vehicles (HPV)
Mr. Georgi Georgiev's initial first passion was creating Human Powered Vehicles. From his world renowned background and training in sculpting, Georgi knew he would be able to conquer the world of Human Powered Vehicles with state of the art designs and creations that would be untouchable! With his Varna Team riders, Georgi set off to establish his reputation within the Human Powered Vehicles' elite. Since Georgi's conception and creation of his first Varna HPV, Team Varna immediately won world record after world record. Mr. Georgi Georgiev has won so many world records with the creations of his HPV's that he has astounded the elite in this sport and firmly established Team Varna as the premier leader in technology and design to this day! Team Varna's World records have NOT been surpassed! The IHPVA (International Human Powered Vehicle Association) is an association of national associations and organizations, dedicated to promoting improvement, innovation and creativity in the use of human power, especially in the design and development of human-powered vehicles. The HPVA is the former IHPVA and now the association for USA, Canada, and still for all English-speaking individuals worldwide who do not have their own national association. Design by JPH Studio

A source of information for owners of recumbent bicycles built and/or designed by Ryan Recumbent Cycles.
Welcome to the Ryan Owners Club! News: Len Vreeland Roger Pierce finally has a page here on the site too! David Harris has his own page after a similar delay! • Ryan Owners Club co-founder Bob "WolverBob" Krzewinski has updated the tips page Photos of Tony Yerex's Gulfstream bike next to his Gulfstream jet! great pictures of their very nice Vanguards This site was created by Bob Krzewinski (of the WolverBents recumbent rider group) and Paul Bruneau as a source of information for owners of bicycles designed or built by Ryan Recumbent Cycles. Owners of similar bikes (such as Longbikes, Infinity, DeFelice and of course, the father of them all, the Avatar 2000) may find some good information here, too. To help with some of this information, we have set up a Yahoo! Group called " ryanownersclub ". Membership is open to anyone. There is a mailing list, but archived messages can also be read at the group page. The Ryan Owners Club also has a database , which we can use as a kind of a guestbook that will provide information about the bikes that are out there. It is one of Paul's goals to learn as much about the different Ryan (and Avatar) bikes as possible (things like how many are still in service, which serial numbers were built when, etc.) Paul has been able to gather a good deal of material that he hopes to add to the site over time. In the beginning, the History section will have a large amount of material, which is going to grow. The scrapbook section is starting to be loaded with pictures related to our favorite bike.

Update! This portion of the ManyTracks site is now in "Archive Mode"
Content is current through the spring of 2010 but I will no longer be updating or accepting submissions. Too many other fun things going on.
A special thanks to all of you who have contributed to this site! A few years ago I decided that I absolutely had to have a recumbent bicycle but being a humble homesteader-type it was obvious that if I was going to ride a recumbent I'd have to build it myself. Since I am a wood worker with limited welding skills, it seemed logical to build my bike out of wood. What followed was the construction of two wood-framed recumbents; first 'Woody' and a bit later, 'TreeBike' and below you'll find links to the documentation of these two projects. What is Recumbent Share? Recumbent Share is a spot where recumbent bike home-builders are sharing their bikes with you! Check it out For now though, this part of our site is being devoted primarily to all those home builders who have sent in photos and stories of their recumbent creations. I hope you enjoy seeing and reading about these fine and very personal creations.

60. Thoughts And Ideas Over Building A Trike
Guide to building custom recumbent trike with pictures and links to needed resources.
Thoughts over building a trike
This is nothing less than as simple story about me building a trike. Whit this telling I will try to give you some advises on the road to a homebuilt bike. Do not just read this story, there is plenty on the internet. In the end of this document, there are additional links to more homebuilders with their hints and advice. Do look on them too. Even on those who have built two-wheelers. Certain things in this document are applicable on two-wheelers too, but because of the fact that I have built a three-wheeler it do goes like this. You do not have to read about Ackermann to build a two-wheeler, but you do have to read Bicycle Steering Geometry and An Introduction to Bicycle Geometry and Handling.
Really boring but so important... What should it look like?
There are two sorts of Trikes, Tadpole or Delta
Find someone who has already built the one you want to build and is willing to share his drawings, or go and buy the drawings from a trike manufacturer (could be expensive). The advantage you get by choosing something somebody already has built is that it is already tested (hopefully). You do get fewer errors.
Decide everything about your bike. Decide what equipment you would like it to have before you start building it.
