Navigating the road with a tricycle

During a bike ride, you may encounter various obstacles. These can sometimes be more challenging to navigate due to the three wheels. Fortunately, the design of bike paths increasingly takes tricycle size into account, resulting in fewer bollards or other narrow passages. However, these obstacles are often not a problem to navigate with most tricycles. By reducing speed, you can easily pass the obstacle.

It's not a problem if one wheel goes off the road. By cycling calmly and steering back, you can easily get back on the road.
