How to Safely Ride a Three Wheel Bike

Many adults are switching to three-wheel bikes for a plethora of reasons. A 3 wheel bike provides excellent stability and a fun ride. Often, adults find it difficult to ride traditional bikes due to joint and muscle issues. If you’re suffering from joint and muscle pain, switching to a 3 wheel bike is a great option.Cargo Bikes

While three-wheel bikes are safe and provide more stability than their two-wheeled counterparts, they adjust newcomers. Features such as a wider wheelbase and the lower center of gravity make them different from traditional bicycles. 

One difficult part of riding a three-wheel bike is getting on and off the mode of transportation. Mounting the bike is tricky due to the seat being low to the ground. We recommend gripping both brake levers tightly before getting on and off. Doing this will prevent the bike from tipping over and slipping away from you. Do not let go of the levers until you are safely on the seat. 

When it comes to turns on a 3 wheel bike, be extra cautious. Be sure not to lean into the turns to avoid tipping over. You want to keep your weight centered and low to the tricycle. 

When climbing up hills, three-wheel bikes have many advantages over traditional bicycles. You are far less likely to tip backward when going uphill. One thing to keep in mind when climbing hills is that three-wheel bikes are heavier than their traditional counterparts. You may need to remove some gears when approaching hills to get up safely.
