Quincy Jeffries reflects on two years in the Trikke world [video]

October 5, 2015

  One of the best things about being a Trikke enthusiast is meeting, riding and communing with other Trikke enthusiasts. Take Quincy Jeffries, for example. We met at his first group ride, the Last Saturday of the Month Ride, aka LSM Ride, in April, 2011. At the time, the Southern California Trikke scene was on the verge of a sea change, with regular group rides and an intense presence on…

65-year-old woman: Trikke is good for my knees, waistline and softball skills

September 1, 2015

Pat Bushman is 50 pounds lighter and still losing weight! We often believe things didn’t exist until we discovered them. This was the case with my introduction to the Trikke, but since discovering this quirky machine, I’ve become a devoted disciple, preaching the benefits and fun to everyone I know. It’s good that riding a Trikke is a little quirky because I’m something of a quirky person. I couldn’t help…

From super disabled to Supergirl, thanks to her Trikke

July 15, 2015

East Texas woman’s Trikke went from wheelchair substitute to fitness machine. I am disabled; I walk with a cane and a limp, but I feel like Supergirl when I’m flyin’ down the trail on my Trikke! In August, 2000, one simple sneeze finished off what a childhood injury started and a disc in my lower back literally blew up. Four failed back surgeries later, I found myself with a laundry…

Meet Randy Boyd, TrikkeWorld Publisher

July 14, 2015

Story originally published on Jan 31, 2011 I am a Trikker. Two years ago this time, I had no idea there was such a thing called a Trikke. Then I saw the last fifteen minutes of an infomercial. Shiny, happy people were riding some kind of newfangled bike, having the time of their lives, beaming like individual rays of golden sunlight. Two years ago this time, that fifteen minutes forever…

Obesity and exercise: Debbie Bumgardner drops the yo-yo diet, picks up a Trikke

June 12, 2015

The frustrated dieter bought the odd vehicle after seeing it on an infomercial. Now she’s speeding down bike paths. Debbie Bumgardner was an overworked 52-year-old legal secretary and frustrated yo-yo dieter from Tarzana who’d gradually cut back on tennis and biking over the years. By early 2010, she was 100 pounds overweight. A year later, Bumgardner is still overworked and stressed-out. But she’s 70 pounds lighter, which she attributes almost…

Trikke helped me lose 120 pounds!

June 7, 2015

Now he’s a lean, mean, Canadian carving machine I have been overweight for over 25 years. At age 54, my doctor said my weight had increased to 315 pounds and that I was now diabetic. This was an eye opener for me and I had two options: take medication to control my sugar levels; or change my diet and start exercising. I chose the latter. I purchased a good elliptical…

That month, she struggled at Southern Cal’s LSM, aka Last Saturday of the Month Trikke Ride, and her three-wheel future didn’t seem…

Green transportation, healthy eating and exercise is gooood living

woman shopping with her Trikke carving vehicle
May 2, 2013

Imagine a world in which the majority of people are favoring the use of light, clean transportation for short trips (instead of 3000+ lb.  gas guzzlers), eating more fresh fruits and veggies (and less packaged  foods), and getting outdoors regularly for exercise (instead of living indoor lives of relative inactivity). The uncluttered, unpolluted city streets would share some of their pavement with the smaller alternative vehicles (safely denoted and protected…
