Recumbent trike for Bert after winning Postcode Loterij
Former triathlete Bert can cycle again after he suffered brain damage from a cardiac arrest 7 years ago. 'Despite my stability problem, I can cycle beautifully again.'
Cash prize enriches life
Seven years ago, Bert suffered a cardiac arrest after swimming. The former triathlete eventually spent 10 days in a coma and suffered brain damage. Because of this, he was unable to play sports as before.
It is a beautiful, handmade bicycle
At the Postcode Loterij (a Dutch national lottery), Bert recently won €10,000. Among other things, he used this money to buy a recumbent trike. 'I am very happy with it, because such a bike gets you outside and you get to see something. It is a beautiful, handmade bicycle and despite my stability problem I can cycle beautifully on it', says Bert in an article from the Postcode Loterij.

With the prize money, Bert bought the Easy Sport recumbent trike from Van Raam. This is an ideal bike for sporty people who also like comfort. Thanks to the understeer, your back, neck, shoulders and wrists are less stressed.
