Yesterday, we were lucky enough to get a visit from a father/daughter duo who were making a trip many of us dream about on their Bacchetta recumbents. You’d think making a trip that will probably total over 3400 miles would be the culmination of our interest; not so! Read on. They’re making the trip on a Corsa (HED wheels no less) and a, well let’s just say modified, Agio. Now, when I say modified, I mean modified! Kent runs a business called Synthetic Transport that uses a power assist to move it along. Now, this stuff is way beyond me, so I will not even try to explain it and usually this is type of thing is not even in our radar. But Kent and Katy are walking the walk and you gotta love that, so check out his site for more pictures and information. For all of you who are interested in a day by day account of their trip, I highly recommend you check out Katy’s blog. She has an easy writing style which makes it all that more enjoyable. http://www.ifyouwerewondering.com/wordpress/bike-log/ We always say there’s not much to see at Bacchetta and for the most part that’s true. But we love it when real, down to earth people like Kent and Katy stop on by and chew on our ear for a bit; we’d love to have you also. And while you’re out there surfing the web, check out Katy’s blog and Kent’s website for some fun and interesting information.
(As an additional noted added 5/24/2022, Kent ended up racing on the Bent Up Cycles 4-man RAAM Team in 2010. We still keep in touch and he is still loving his Bacchetta!)
