Our Customers: Recumbent Adventures and Travel Reports

A large number of our customers are not only actively on the road with their recumbent, but also on the internet. In their blogs and vlogs, we’re there at first hand – whether it’s traveling to faraway countries or just adventures right beyond the doorstep. Discover more about globetrotters and everyday cyclists on recumbents by HP Velotechnik:

Pages in German:

    • Maria Jeanne Dompierre: the “Liegeradfrau”
      An enthusiastic recumbent cyclist writes about her experiences – especially with an electrified Scorpion fs 20. In the meantime the “Liegeradfrau” serves many not only as a classical personal blog, but has established itself as a thematically broadly diversified information portal.
    • Klaus Dapp: Liegevelo
      Klaus Dapp from Darmstadt reports about his tours and everyday experiences with the Grasshopper fx. He regularly visits trade fairs such as the special bicycle fair (SPEZI) in Germersheim or the Eurobike and reports on the latest developments in two wheel recumbents. He also writes at first hand about HP’s headquarters in Kriftel.
    • Fredy Artho: Liegeradblog
      “It’s the ideal touring bike for us.” After long research and test rides, Fredy and his wife Barbara decided in 2013 for their very first big bike trip not for the classic Streetmachine Gte, but two Grasshopper fx – and have not regretted it until today, as the reports about their following trips show.
    • Oliver Brandmüller: Sysadminbybike
      Oliver Brandmüller from Berlin is blogging about his tours with the Speedmachine. Even though the good piece already lists 2008 on the birth certificate, the two are quite sporty on the road, but enjoyment and experience are anything but in last place.
    • Klaus Vock: Radfahrlust
      The Scorpion rider Klaus Vock was not only enthusiastic about his tricycle, but also, as an MS sufferer, about the newly gained quality of life. He wanted to share this experience with others affected by illness and physical limitations. The result was a self-aid group, which we, together with other manufacturers, are happy to support in organizing a large cycling tour year in year out.
    • Bruno Schmidt: ALS – Bruno’s Challenge
      The road bike enthusiast from Linnich was diagnosed the disease ALS, which became known through the “Ice Bucket Challenge”. On the racing bike he fought against the disease – for himself and for others. When this was no longer possible due to the progressive disease, he took up the challenge with one of our Scorpions. Unfortunately, cycling is no longer possible at all anymore, but his commitment to ALS sufferers remains unbroken.
    • Daniela und Stephan: Liegebummler
      In December 2014, the two travellers from Munich set off for New Zealand and gradually explored the globe from there. Base: each a Streetmachine Gte.
