7 Adult Trikes, From Tame To Game For Anything

How about a trike ride? An adult trike ride.  Trikes provide a more relaxing ride than bikes, and if you get a recumbent trike, it's less stressful on your joints and your back than a bike.  Either way, the trike's the trip right now.

Of course, like bicycles, trikes are available in all price ranges.  Here are a wide range of trike styles with price ranges from about $250 to $5000 for you to peruse.


1.  Schwinn Meridian Adult 26-Inch 3-Wheel Bike

Remember your first bike? Mine just happened to be a Schwinn, so this one really hit me in the memory.  Happy to see, though, that instead of training wheels, this one has two nice big balancing wheels in the rear. And guys, there's no bar on the trikes, so you don't have to worry about hitting yourself on it.  In blue and black cherry (yum). You can find this bike on Amazon here.
