My biggest hobby was cycling. Unfortunately, due to my physical problems, I found it increasingly difficult to get off a regular bicycle. I mainly had problems with my stability, especially during a sudden brake application (emergency stop).
When I started to find it more and more difficult to cycle on a regular bicycle. I started Googling for a tricycle. I ended up on the Van Raam website. I was then able to find all the information I needed.
On the Van Raam website I saw that there was a possibility to request a free test ride. Although I was aware of this, I did not go to Varsseveld. Through my sister-in-law, she is an ergo therapist, I was able to try out a number of bicycles and models at her work. The Easy Rider was among these bicycle models. I liked this tricycle the best. I then put together the options for the bicycle with my sister-in-law and I purchased the bicycle as a private individual.
My Easy Rider tricycle suits me well. The bike feels stable and during an emergency stop I can now remain seated. That's nice. In the beginning I had to get used to cycling on a tricycle, it cycles differently than a bike with two wheels. I think the main difference is the stability. In addition, it is nice that you can immediately put your feet on the ground and the bike has a seat with more comfort.
I use my tricycle to walk the dog, to do groceries and for cycling trips. On average I cycle around 30 kilometers a day. I mainly cycle in 7th gear with the pedal support in setting 1. I can then cycle around 150 kilometers before the battery has to be recharged.
Since you cannot order bicycles directly at Van Raam, I went to a local bicycle shop to order my tricycle. This was Rijwielsporthuis Ad van Overveld in Zegge. I must say that I am very satisfied about the contact with this dealer. I have been a customer of Ad for 35 years. At that time I moved to Oud-Gastel and wanted to keep Ad as my bicycle repairman. Fortunately he was also able to deliver the Easy Rider. After waiting about 7 weeks, I got my own Easy Rider tricycle. Delivery went smoothly.
During cycling, I also use the Van Raam E-Bike App. I mainly use my app to monitor my cycled distances. I do not use other functions. I found out through the website that this app exists. The cycling app works very well!
I was cycling once and I thought there was a twig under my bike. Then I stopped and I put my bike aside to look. Two cars stopped immediately. The assistance with this tricycle is considerably larger!
