These are for people of all ages, but they are particularly suited to people with mobility or balance issues.
The e Trike offers the cycling experience with the security and balance of three wheels, and the comfort of knowing that the amount of exertion (or none!) can be predetermined.
The Trike also has a large basket for carrying goods. Battery range is approx 50km but the Trikes can be fitted with a second battery which brings the potential range up to 100km.
Please contact us if you are interested and would like to test one for yourself, a friend or a family member.

Prevent sunburn, stay hydrated and avoid the UV radiation – tips for riding in hot hot weather……….

We are having a great summer and one of the biggest obstacles with cycling in hot weather is maintaining adequate hydration.
Drink little and often when riding, and make sure that you have plenty of drink with you or know of places on your route where you can obtain more drinks.
While some cyclists are proud of their cycling tan as a badge of honour, others find it embarrassing to look as though you are still wearing a white T-shirt when you take your top off. But tan lines are not the main concern – damaging sunburn and the risk of skin cancer due to excessive ultraviolet light exposure are a problem. Wear sunscreen on the exposed parts of your body: arms, legs, face and in particular the back of your neck.
A very obvious way to avoid the severity of the sun’s rays is to avoid the hottest periods of the day for your cycling trip. Ride in the morning or evening. Pay particular attention to fluid intake when you get home, but also don’t forget to eat as you would normally after a ride.
A cold bath or shower will help you cool off. You may also feel you deserve an ice cream or two……………..
