When most people hear the word tricycle, they begin to think about a child’s bike that is designed to help them learn to ride a bicycle. There seems to be a certain stigma in our society when it comes to adults riding tricycles. Many believe that adults should ride two-wheeled bicycles. There are some facts to learn about three-wheeled bikes that might make them more appealing to own.
Tricycles were invented in the mid-1800s. It was not until the late-1800s that adult tricycles were massed produced. The two most common people to use these bikes were businesses owners and aristocrats. Businesses liked that you could haul equipment and merchandise, and for aristocrats, the bike became a status symbol (which was later replaced by the automobile).
Cargo bikes with a third wheel offer riders unmatched balancing while moving and standing still. They offer users the ability to haul cargo and even people. Wagons can be hitched to the vehicles, and special compartments can be built to carry gear around.
Adult tricycles also tend to be more comfortable than bicycles because of the weight distribution.
