“It’s a tricycle, Mr. President, you’re on a tricycle!” “They call it a Trikke, yeah,” says Jimmy Carter, former president of the United States. He’s carving around his property in Plains, Georgia, educating CBS reporter Leslie Stahl about Trikke carving vehicles on 60 Minutes (original airdate: September 19, 2010). “It gives you a workout from your ankles all the way up to your shoulders and your neck,” adds the man…

October 5, 2015

We met at his first group ride, the Last Saturday of the Month Ride, aka LSM Ride, in April, 2011.

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…

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…

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…


Show Me How to Ride a Trikke, Really?

That question gets thrown at me all the time. And then it’s followed by one of two phrases, either “Hey that looks like fun”, or “Boy that looks like work”. The second phrase depends on you. Did you look like you were struggling or were you flowing like a graceful bird. Learning to ride the Trikke carving vehicle is one of those things that is different for everyone. Some have…
