Trike (3-wheel) vs. Bike (2-wheel) video

We get many questions on what to choose, a trike or 2wheel bike. Many people think they want a trike for stability. Which a trike is, more stable when you are standing still....but riding a bike or a trike is quite a different story! Some more information is in this article. A trike is great for short distcance, on the footpath and not going very fast, Want to ride on the road, a fair distance (more than 3km) and have a bit of speed, a 2-wheel bike is certainly worth to consider!

News from Munnew / Meercrof care; TRISHAW BIKE LAUNCH In November we were so excited to finally present our Trishaw bike to everyone. It was a beautiful day we were worried, as the day before was a very wet one. We had a sausage sizzle. A large number of people joined us from families, club members and people from the community who had very kindly donated funds to us to allow us to purchase our bike. Denise very kindly peddled away all day giving rides to everyone, it was a great day and I know that we will get so much enjoyment from this bike over the summer. We are very lucky at Munnew as we have some amazing ...
