Realistic traffic obstacles
With the design of the Van Raam bike test track, various traffic obstacles have been taken into account that also occur regularly in daily life. By trying these traffic obstacles first in a safe environment (the bicycle test track), we hope to defuse the tension of the bicycle user. In addition, the end user already knows better how he / she can deal with different traffic obstacles, before the bicycle is first used in traffic.
Traffic obstacles that you see on the Van Raam bike test track include a speed bump, a quarter bend that is difficult to overlook, a winding cycle path, a shell path and manhole covers on the road. In addition, it is also possible to cycle up and down the curb on the test track and a driveway construction has been simulated.
Because the first time cycling on an adapted bicycle can be very exciting for some people, our bike test track is designed in such a way that you can also cycle a round without encountering any obstacles.
Did you quickly get used to the bike Then it is also possible to take up the challenge and cycle up a larger slope on the test track. This slope has two different angles, one of 6 and one of 10 degrees. This corresponds to the mobility scooter standard. People who have to cycle up or down a slope at home can test how this is going with the bike they are trying.
