2024 Smoky Mountain Recumbent Rally

2024 SMRR

Sponsored by:  TRIDENT TRIKES

Welcome to the 12th Annual Smoky Mountain Recumbent Rally. This year Trident Trikes is subsidizing/sponsoring our rally. Trident is an innovator in giving maximum value at an affordable price with unique folding trikes.  We are very thankful for Tom Flohr sponsoring this rally.  Trident Trikes has attended every rally from the start and has been a presenter many times. In point of fact, this rally has become the scene for many of Trident's product introductions. They are a major fixture at this rally. 

Come join us again in the beautiful Smoky Mountains and enjoy two days of great rides in beautiful scenic locations right here in and around the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Due to the park closing 1 of the 2 "car free" day (Wed & Sat) we have had to change the date for the cove ride to the middle of the week to the only car free day we have which is Wednesday. We hope many of you  can still attend but if not, we do understand. 

The Highland Manor Inn and conference center is looking forward to having us there again. Here you can reserve a room and be right in the middle of the action as we are located along  the 9 mile long bike path in Townsend, TN. There are numerous designated bike routes all around us rolling through some of the most beautiful scenery East Tennessee has to offer. Register for two days, one day or just the dinner Saturday night.  Good food, great rides and scenery, great speakers, industry experts...  ONLINE Registration open until April 30.  You can still call us at 865.982.2555 to register after that date but no guarantees of T-shirts.

While we set up our  events please check back frequently to see all the exciting things we'll have scheduled.  And as usual, we try to have some have some tents set up from a few select groups from the recumbent world showing off products, providing test rides  and answering questions If you are a vendor and would like to display with a pop up let us know. We'd love to  have you.

We are currently soliciting help with ride leaders and sweepers.
