Customer experience Easy Rider tricycle – L. R. Verdooren
Mister Verdooren has osteoarthritis on his right knee which often caused him to fall over when getting off his previous e-bike. Now he has the Easy Rider electric tricycle and he enjoys it a lot. Read his story here.
Cycling with osteoarthritis
"I am 87 years old and I have had my Easy Rider tricycle since September 2022. I bought this bike because I have osteoarthritis on my right knee. Previously, I had a FLYER e-bike but when getting off, I often had no feeling in my right leg, causing me to fall over. In the town, I cycled with a regular bike and outside the town with the e-bike. I did a test ride and consultation at Van Raam and this pleased me very much."
My Easy Rider tricycle
"In terms of special options on my Easy Rider tricycle, I have a stick holder, mirror, basket, a RAL colour of my choice (I chose red) and electric pedal support!
With nice weather, I cycle an average of 10-15 kilometres a week. I find the bike to have a stable and comfortable seat and good support from the motor. I only have to get used to cycling over road bumps and through corners. I give the Easy Rider tricycle a 9! My children also really like the bike."
In the article 'Cycling with osteoarthritis' you can read more about cycling with osteoarthritis and the use of adapted Van Raam bicycles for osteoarthritis.
