Today – Who are Adult Tricycles for?
The benefits of adult tricycles
What are your thoughts on adult tricycles?
I have most definitely been won over. Just look at these trikes.
Oh my goodness I love to bike ride. I am, however, not exactly the best cyclist in the world. I have always been a bit of a wibbly wobbler when it comes to cycling and I don’t think I would ever particularly trust myself to cycle on busy roads.
Having a little trip around Center Parcs where there are no cars is about as good as it gets for me!
I have often thought that it would be really nice to have a very stable bike like a tricycle to ride. But I have quickly countered this thought – assuming adult tricycles dint exist and even if they did I wouldn’t look very cool riding one (I know that shouldn’t matter one but oh it does a little bit!)
I could not be more wrong, however – there are some truly lovely adult tricycles to be had and they are most definitely cool.
The story behind Jorvik adult tricycles is really heartwarming.
When James Walker needed to find a good quality trike for his father, Stuart, who had Parkinson’s disease, he discovered there just weren’t the kinds of bikes out there his dad could ride. So he created Jorvik tricycles to help people like his dad continue riding even though they may be a little unstable mobility wise.
Such a lovely story!
Different types of Adult Tricycles
You can electric tricycles designed for long commutes you can get folding travel trikes for taking on your holiday, you can get lightweight trikes, mountain bike type trikes and classic trikes. Do pop over and look at the adult tricycle range it’s rather fabulous.
Who are Adult Tricycles for? Cycling can be for everyone
Cycling is so very good for our health, in terms of fresh air and exercise and it is so good for the environment too as it is carbon neutral Another huge benefit to cycling is how social it can be. Tricycles enable a whole family to cycle together So even if one member of a family struggle with their confidence, their balance or mobility they can simply hop anon their trike and still join in.
Trikes can hugely help people who are nervous, unbalanced o who haven’t cycled for a long time. This could be a perfect way for grandparents to join a family bike ride perhaps? ( Take a look at my post on how to save money at Center Parcs)
