You have bought a Van Raam bicycle! First of all, Van Raam wishes you a lot of cycling pleasure with your new bike. In this article, we give you some practical tips on what to keep in mind after buying your bike.

Tip 1. Learn to ride on your adapted bike

Maybe you cycle away on your new Van Raam bike, then that's great. But many people have to get used to cycling on an adapted bicycle. So don't cycle too fast at first and practise regularly in calm, flat surroundings. With a tricycle, for example, you are wider because of the three wheels and steering is a bit different than on a two-wheel bike. More tips on learning to ride a tricycle can be found in the article 'Cycling on a tricycle for adults'.

You can read how to adjust your bike, information about the electrical system and much more. Have you lost your manual? The manual can be found on the product page of your bike under the heading 'Downloads'.

Tip 3. Make sure your Van Raam bike is properly stored
