Tips for Riding Adult Tricycles

For whatever reason, people tend to see tricycles as a child’s bicycles, although that is very much not the case. It is easy to find a wide range of adult tricycles for sale that meets different standards and styles of riding. Adult tricycles are fun and easy to ride. They also offer many other benefits, including increased cargo room for transporting goods. Considering that tricycles are not necessarily conventional, we want to take the time and go over some basic trike riding tips and techniques.

  • Considering the extra size and weight of a three-wheeled bike, it is best to get on while the bike is on a level road. If a flat route cannot be found, make sure to keep your hand clutched on the break. When you initially get on, do not worry about balancing. That is a bonus of using three wheels.
  • The weight of the bike will factor into acceleration speed. An adult tricycle is not built for speed, so consider starting to peddle at a slow and consistent rate. You can then pick up the pace.
  • Make sure never to clamp down on the front brake alone. Either start first with the back and then move to the front, or you can hit both together.
  • It is essential to get proper accessories for riding a larger bike. You will want adequate lighting and reflecting gear. You may also want to consider mirrors if you are towing equipment.
