"Recumbent tricycle manufacturer TerraTrike has launched a new website to help trike owners connect with other riders in their local communities.
The company said TrikeGroups.com will serve as the place to find like-minded recumbent trike enthusiasts who want to ride. Once they’ve signed up for a free account, users can find other riders in their local community, join a group ride, or organize and plan their own ride. Users can also view a map of other registered users nearby, create their own group, comment and post on forums."

TerraTrike’s Jon DeHate flew to Nebraska recently, to visit with several TerraTrike dealer shops. The two day visit was a great opportunity for Jon to offer training sessions, presentations, and learn more about the dealers. The shops he visited included ‘Xtreme Wheels’ in Council Bluffs, Iowa, ‘The Bike Rack’ (2 shops) in Omaha and Lincoln, Nebraska, and the ‘New and Used Bike Shop’ in Lincoln, Nebraska.
The dealers were very receptive to Jon’s presentations, and welcomed his ideas on ways to grow their businesses, connect with customers via social media and use events to build new customer relationships.
The dealers were also excited to learn more about TerraTrike University, the online training and education program available to TerraTrike dealers. TTU was set up to train dealers in assembly, service and sales of the TerraTrikes product collection.

TerraTrike has launched a new website to help trike owners connect with other riders in their local communities. TrikeGroups.com will serve as the place to find like-minded recumbent trike enthusiasts who want to ride. Once they’ve signed up for a free account, users can find other riders in their local community, join a group ride, or organize and plan their own ride. Users can also view a map of other registered users nearby, create their own group, comment and post on forums, and much more.
TrikeGroups is not brand specific, and was created with the vision to be all-inclusive and welcoming to all types of riders. “Trike riding has been providing mobility and activity to people from all walks of life for decades,” said Marketing Director Jeff Yonker, “and we want to offer riders a way to connect with other trike owners nearby, and build their own local triking community. We believe that the more people get together and ride, the stronger the trike community will become, and the more fun everyone will have.” The recumbent trike market is not only the fastest growing segment in the cycling industry, but it also has the most passionate, fun-loving individuals involved in the sport! A recumbent trike is the perfect vehicle for exercising while having fun. TrikeGroups was set up with the goal of building friendships and encouraging riders to share their passion for trikes, as well as their favorite trails, gadgets, and the stories that go along with trike riding.

Dogwood Festival is a popular annual city festival that includes bed races, food booths, music and a carnival. Nearby TerraTrike dealer, Dogwood Junction, took advantage of the festival mood to hold an open house with trike events, giveaways and seminars. TerraTrike’s Brit Heron was there to offer event support, and he also provided an information session on how to maintain your trike.
The warm weather brought out a lot of recumbent enthusiasts, and many of them joined in the 35 mile group ride. Other trike events included an obstacle course, barrel race and pole bending. Dogwood Junction is one of TerraTrike’s Top 10 Dealers, and they were named ’Dealer of the Year’ in 2013.
Bike Fusion Expo BikeFusion, an annual community bike and demo show, was put on by several area cycling shops and community partners. Visitors had the opportunity to check out a wide variety of trikes and bikes. TerraTrike’s Jeff Stowe did some early morning training with the staff at Ft. Wayne Outfitters, a TerraTrike dealer.

Throughout the rest of the day, Jeff helped Bike Fusion visitors with test rides on TerraTrikes and answered their questions. The Bike Fusion event was geared towards adaptive needs, and provided a chance for visitors to sample several different brands and styles of recumbents. The most ridden TerraTrikes were the Rover, the Tour II and especially the TandemPro, with people excitedly waiting to get their chance to pedal with a friend. The event was held at the Turnstone Plassman Athletic Center, where a large indoor track was set up for test rides. Bike Fusion is part of Fort Wayne’s KickSTART Festival, a month-long community celebration of bikes, art, music and theater.
