Recumbent Cycles of Lancaster Hosts 30-Year Anniversary Ride for Local Legend

Recumbent Cycles is happy to host and celebrate Ride With Mike on September 12 through Lancaster, PA.

Recumbent Cycles of Lancaster, the region’s premier provider of recumbent cycles and specialty bikes, is hosting a 30th anniversary celebration ride to commemorate the achievements of local legend Mike King.

His amazing 5,600-mile journey inspired millions of differently-abled individuals around the globe to push their limits and stay physically fit.

King has invited the local community to join him on a five-mile loop through downtown Lancaster, after which snacks and beverages will be provided to participants. The ride will begin at 10:00am at Recumbent Cycles of Lancaster, on 2207 Marietta Avenue in Lancaster. Participation in the ride is free of charge, but participants are required to register at
