“The thing is more than a little strange to look at, with its oversize wheels, skateboard platforms and cambering handlebars … and it’s as much fun as a bicycle, once you learn how to ride it.”

Among them: Lawrence Mayes, who “lost 36 pounds in three months after acquiring his Trikke with points he earned at work.”
The story also features comments by Trikke Tech CEO John Simpson and highlights a Dutch research group’s study of the Trikke as an effective calorie burner. To read the entire article, titled, Trikke Fans Push the Idea That Three Wheels Are Better Than Two, go here on the Washington Post website.
