The search for a special needs bike
The search on the internet began: tricycles, hmm ugly. However, I ended up on the Van Raam website and there I saw the Easy Rider and the Easy Sport. I really liked these tricycles. It looks a bit like a recumbent trike and it looks cool, so I had communicated this. First I tested the Easy Rider, this was not a bike for me, I got too much pressure on my knees. I made a follow-up appointment with the WMO and Van Raam, and there it was, the Easy Sport. After a short bicycle tour I knew this was the bike for me. The trike cycled wonderfully, steered easily and sits comfortably. The measurements were well measured and a few weeks later my bike arrived.
Cycling with my Easy Sport 3 wheel bike
I Immediately got on my bike and went for a ride, full 'throttle' with the pedal support in the 3rd mode. That went pretty fast. After that a longer distance also in the 3. Nice and fast, but the battery runs out quickly as well. Of course, that's obvious. Since then I always cycle in the 2nd mode and then I can keep up with everyone, including the other electric cyclists. If I want to cross a bridge, I put it in the 3rd mode and I cross the bridge easily.
I have to walk with a crutch and after 5 to 10 minutes I am exhausted and really need to recover. With the Easy Sport I can easily cycle half an hour to an hour non stop. Once I'm home I'm tired rather than having problems with my joints, so this is perfect. My advice, however, is to have the bike adjusted really well, because when everything is set perfectly, like with a racing bike, you never want anything else but this. You get used to cycling in this angle very quickly and it is much less strenuous to your knees, the seat is firm and you can cycle comfortably in your lazy chair. I am very happy with it and it completely meets my needs.
