TerraTrike owner Dave Langkamp has spent the last year and over 600 hours building a velomobile using his TerraTrike Tour II.
Dave was a designer for John Deere for 20 years and is now retired and loving every minute of it. he gets to design and build and play to his hearts content.
"After one years time and 600 hours of designing and building I officially declared at 7:00 pm tonight that my Radius T-T velomobile project is completed. It has been a long and fun process to create what you see here. For those of you who do not already know the name Radius T-T comes from radius being the rounded shape of my design and T-T being short for TerraTrike which is the recumbent trike that is the heart of the machine."
Enjoy the pictures below and check out his blog that chronicles the entire building process!

The TerraTrike offices and showroom will be closed this Friday and Saturday July 11th & 12th for inventory. We will resume operations and be back open Monday July 14th.
As not every TerraTrike employee is needed for inventory, half of the TerraTrike staff will be volunteering at a local Habitat For Humanity site helping frame in a new house for the day. We enjoy giving back to our community and strongly encourage others to do the same.
It’s just another way that we try to be "Part Of The Solution."

This is a trike only event conducted by the Human Powered Race America (HPRA).It is a beautiful facility for trike racing, and we’ll have chip timing for all events. The racing day will include solo events, and events where you will race with a small group of similar strength racers."

TerraTrike is being featured prominently in a new book by author Bill Freed titled "The Pacific Coast by Recumbent Trike - The Journey Is The Destination"
"I’m not sure exactly when it happened, but at a very early age I realized that bikes are bitchin. What I mean by that is that any machine that multiples your ability to move across the earth under your own power without damaging or destroying it, is pretty groovy. . . .Although there were a few breaks here and there, my love affair with bikes continued throughout most of my adult life. Coinciding with my love of bikes was a love of the coast where I spent the majority of my adult life. The two (bikes and beaches) go well together. . . .In retrospect, it almost seems like destiny that I would end up on a long bike ride down the West Coast, and that is exactly what I ended up doing with my good friend and riding companion, Jim Park, in the summer of 2010. . . .This book is about an adventure that took place over about a month and a half with a background that was constantly changing and all this from the perspective of what amounts to more or less a beach chair that moves -- enjoy the ride.

Upon recent completion of long term testing on the Traveler folding trike we have decided to delay its release.
TerraTrike dealers and customers expect and deserve reliable, quality products; and the Traveler’s hinges we had been testing simply did not meet our standards. Because we put the performance and safety of our products above all else, the release of our Traveler, which we originally anticipated for the 2014 spring season, will be delayed until this coming fall.
We are actively constructing new hinge prototypes that address the shortcomings of the old design as well as ensuring the same ride quality, safety and ease of use over the life of the product. TerraTrike will share updates as information is available and as a time frame solidifies. We understand any disappointment that this delay causes, but we are confident in the long-term benefits of forging this path and look forward to delivering the Traveler as a folding trike worth owning.
We remain the best selling recumbent trike brand available due to our commitment to customer service and our range of products that already exceed many customers needs and expectations. As part of this commitment, anyone with questions should feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-800-945-9910.
