How to ride a tricycle – a newcomer’s guide …

If you are new to tricycling, here is an outstanding visual presentation that will show one very successful method for getting started on a tricycle, or at least, how to get a tricycle started from a stop. Granted, this is a delta trike, and it is not a recumbent, but pedals are pedals. Here’s how:

I love this kid’s exclamation once underway with pedals: “Wow” he says, and the grin from ear to ear is just like the one we adults experience when riding our grown-up tricycles. You know, adult tricycle riders are nothing more than kids who never grew up! So shed the culture’s stigma about what adults are “supposed” to do, and just go out and have some fun!      JUST GO!

    Might as well face it Jerry … adult trikers ARE kids! We never grew up, and NEVER will – that’s what’s so cool about riding tricycles, be they delta or tadpole. You and I are just little boys in adult bodies. We know how to have fun – the rest of humanity (the non-trikers) are doomed to a life of mundane proportions.
