Die Route 76

Despite her irreparable hip problems, Gunda Grauss of 72 tested the electric tricycle for adults, the Easy Rider of Van Raam. In the summer of 2009 Mrs. Krauss cycles form Munich to Rügen. In less then 50 days she traveled 1262 kilometers away on this special tricycle from Van Raam. The unique design of this special needs bike made this trip very pleasant.

Test tricycle: 1200 km cycling true Germany

The Easy Rider is called a chair bicycle. Ms. Krauss has had great support from the seating.  The seat height and angle of the seat are adjustable. With the electric pedal support the more than 1200 km in 49 days were no problem.  
The Easy Rider electric tricycle for adults has finished the whole trip without problems. Gunda Krauss showed us that people with disabilities can just as easily finish long cycle distances. On the front and rear side of the tricycle luggage baskets were assembled. During the entire trip her wirehaired dachshund sat in a basket next to her.
