Benefits tricycle for adults

If it is not possible to ride a standard two-wheeled bike due to stability problems or other limitations, a three-wheeled bike is a good solution. Due to illness or aging, you may come to the stage where cycling with a standard bicycle is not (or no longer) possible or is no longer safe. The risk of falling is too great and getting on and off the bike is no longer possible, so participating in traffic is no longer safe for you and your fellow road users.

A fall causes a lot of suffering and often leads to a deterioration in the quality of life of an elderly person. In addition to physical discomfort, fear of falling often seems to be an important reason for not getting on a bicycle. This is very unfortunate if the bicycle turns out to be the only means of transport for this person.
