The Family That Rides Together…
We live here. We work here. We ride here. RCL is a family owned business and the perfect example of taking your passion and seeing if you can do it for a living. We’re experienced recumbent cycle riders, trained service professionals and accredited members of both The Bike Shop Advantage and the National Bicycle Dealer Association. As a fellow rider and friend of the family, you get the personalized attention and benefits of working with a local, professional bike shop. There’s no better place to buy your custom-fit bent.
Pleased To Meet You.
Welcome to the world of riding bent.
Welcome to the family.
Scott Barrows, Owner
Scott has been riding bent for 3 years and is a trained bicycle/ recumbent cycle technician. He is active with local bike clubs, Youth Bike Safety, Rails To Trails and Veteran’s organizations. He has more than 40-years’ experience in sales, marketing, merchandising and executive leadership and took to bent riding because it provided a fitness alternative that was easy on his knees and hips. “Comfort enhances commitment,” as they say. And Scott’s experience – and his own commitment – helped him shed over 150 pounds and transition from the corporate world to being a driven, committed and healthy entrepreneur.
Diane Barrows, Owner
Diane runs the business, from soup to nuts. And with over 40-years’ experience in education, training, human resources and business administration, Scott is more than happy to let her! Diane lends her support to local cycling causes and is herself an avid and experienced bent rider. She began riding with Scott and is drawn to recumbent cycling because of the many factors such as comfort, safety and stability that riding bent provides. She is committed to helping deliver the recumbent experience to our community and beyond.
We Love Our Vets.
Living my dream and thanking those that defend it. Opening and owning my own business was something I often thought about. And after over 40 years working in corporate America, what started as a “back of the napkin business plan” is now my very own recumbent cycle shop. I’ve got a lot of people to thank for their support of my dream – my wife, Diane, family, friends, mentors – the list is long. But beyond those that have helped me develop my business plan, design logos and websites, paint walls, and put together bikes are those that secure the American dream. It’s the men and women in our armed forces that fight everyday to keep us safe and support the many freedoms we enjoy on a daily basis – including freedom to open a new business at 61 years young. For all they sacrifice, I am eternally grateful. That’s why I want to say Thank You to all who have served and am happy to announce that Recumbent Cycles of Lancaster is a participating vendor of Lancaster County’s “Thank A Vet” Program.
I aim to give any service man or woman an opportunity for a comfortable bike ride – including those that have been wounded and aren’t able to ride traditional foot powered cycles. That’s why we carry a variety of adaptive cycles, including hand cycles, great for recovery or recreation. Everyone, regardless of ability, should be able to enjoy the freedom of a bike ride. It’s a freedom worth fighting for. As a participating vendor of Lancaster County’s “Thank A Vet” Program, Recumbent Cycles of Lancaster will give any registered armed forces veteran with a Lancaster County Veteran ID card a 5% discount on any product or service purchase. Thank you Vets… we salute you!
