Rider Fest 2018



Join us for the 5th Annual TerraTrike RiderFest! This year’s event takes place on Saturday, July 28, 2018, from 8am to 3pm.  RiderFest is a day filled with trike riding, fun, food and friendship… and a few surprises!   Don’t miss this awesome event!  The ride staging area will be Johnson Park in SouthWest Grand Rapids.  Johnson Park offers extensive parking, restrooms, and connects to the paved network of Kent Trails.Registration begins at 8am, Photo at 9am, and then we’ll head out for a morning trail ride. The RiderFest 2018 trail ride will be a 10 mile out and back route. The route is mainly an easy flat paved path that follows along the Grand River. RiderFest 2018 will be a casual ‘no one left behind’ ride, and will include TerraTrike staff riding along, as well as SAG support. The ride is open to all types and models of trikes and bikes, not just TerraTrikes.

Helmets are required for all riders, and a liability waiver must be signed at time of registration.  After the ride, the day will continue with lunch, games and contests at the Johnson Park staging area.  At noon, a catered lunch will be provided at Johnson Park. Lawn games, activities, and award presentations are planned. RiderFest is a great time to network with other trike riders, as well as the staff of TerraTrike.

Also, back by popular demand, Chonk’s Challenge – a grueling 1.5 mile hill climb that will begin shortly after lunch with a special prize for all who complete it.

We also encourage riders to wear their best riding costumes. This years prize for best dressed will be something special.

We will also be showing all of our NEW products as well, including a few not yet released ones!

At 2:00pm the awards presentation will take place. The 2018 awards given out will be for:

  • Best Dressed Rider
  • Furthest Traveled
  • Most Awesome Trike
  • Most Senior Triker
  • Most Vintage Trike
  • Youngest Triker

There will be a nominal fee ($10.00) per person to help offset the cost of shirts, food and activities. The last couple of RiderFest events have been great fun, and we hope to see everyone again in 2018!



Please note: There will be minimum items for sale. Please bring any accessories with you. Our local dealer, West Michigan Bike & Fitness will be on site with limited accessories for sale and their store is only a few miles away should you need any last minute supplies.
