Experiences so far
The Twinny Plus tricycle is a real mature tandem, and our first three-wheeled tandem. It's very different from a two-wheeler, that takes a bit of getting used to, but with three wheels it's also very nice that you can just keep sitting. With this bike we don't have that problem with getting on and off, it's much safer and that's super important to me.
Extra options on the Twinny Plus tandem
The bike is electrically supported, it just rides fantastic! And the nice thing is that there is a starting aid on it, so if you're already on it with the two of you and you press the starting aid, you can zoom away like that, that's very easy.
Besides that, we also decorated the bike itself with a beautiful golden bell, a flower garland and on the back a big pink baker's basket. My daughter loves pink very much and this way the bike looks very cheerful.
There was also a demand from the town hall of Velsen that I have to park the bike inside. Because of the size of the tricycle tandem I don't have room for it at home, so I approached bike shop Rein Veenendaal to make a cover for the bike. They made a nice custom made canvas cover for us. I had to have the sizes of the Twinny Plus, I could find these on the Van Raam website and I sent the measurements to Rein Veenendaal. The bike is now in the front yard, chained. Fortunately, the municipality of Velsen thought that was okay.
My daughter really enjoys cycling. Along the way people say the bike looks nice, she gets compliments and remarks about it and there is always a very positive reaction. People often say: "Look, a long bike!" or "Wow, two bikes attached to each other!" I feel like going cycling a lot this summer.
