2. Make sure you’re well prepared before you go on the road
Make sure that the bike is on parking brake before letting the passenger sit on the bike, so that the bike cannot move forwards or backwards. Also, make sure that the saddle and the handlebars are at the right height, that there is enough air in the tires and that the battery from the pedal assistance is charged (if applicable).
3. Be aware when you are steering
Be aware that a bike with three wheels, such as a wheelchair bike, steers differently than a two-wheel bike. This may take some time to get used to it in the beginning. In combination with speed, this can cause a startle reaction. To prevent this, we recommend that you first cycle slowly so you can experience what it is like to cycle on a wheelchair bike. Because of the three wheels, you have more stability and can’t fall over. It is not necessary to cycle directly at high speed.
4. Practice first on flat terrain in a calm environment
This allows you to get to know the bike in a calm situation.
