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…

Love affair with Trikke begins anew

September 14, 2015

I have fallen in love with my Trikke, Black Birdie, many times over. I fell in love with her when I finally learned how to carve. I fell deeper in love when I learned to trust the lean (well — leaning for me). This last weekend I fell even deeper when I took my first Trikke trip to the central coast of California. A newbie to our local carving group,…

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…

10 Things I Learned While Riding My Trikke

This article was originally published on Randy Boyd’s Blocks under the title “10 Things I Learned While Trikking.“ 10. A moderate Trikke ride in cold, crappy weather is better than any workout inside a cold, crappy gym. 9. Carving uphill or against a good stiff wind does wonders for the arms. 8. Even though “looks like a lot of hard work” is a comment often heard while carving, riding my…

Mother of two boys: I found my thrill. It’s called a Trikke!

August 11, 2015

“It makes me feel like a kid with a new toy!” I bought a Trikke carving vehicle so could have something to ride when I took my two boys to the park or to practice. I got so much more! My first few days of riding were fun but tough. I felt I wasn’t getting “it,” so I looked up “Trikke” on the internet and found SouthBay Trikke, which was…

Heartwarming testimonial posted on Trikke Facebook page

The following note was posted on the Trikke Facebook page. It’s a story its author, Marcy Scardino, calls “My journey with Trikke.” I got my Trikke in 2007 for Christmas after seeing it on a late night infomercial. I had never seen one of these used before, never met anyone who had heard of it, and got so frustrated with trying to learn it while dealing with nay sayers that it…

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…

Senior hates exercise but loves his Trikke

July 6, 2015

“I hate exercise. I really hate it. I’ve tried everything from rowing machines to stationary bikes to elliptical machines. The Trikke is truly a miracle machine.” Larry Mehlmauer is having a second childhood, quite a miracle, considering he’s 70 years-old. Factor in a host of health challenges — including a massive heart attack and diabetes — and some might call that more than a miracle. “I’m having more fun than…
