Hi and welcome to the new upright trike forum. Upright, meaning three wheeled, human powered vehicles where the rider (or riders) sit more or less upright, astride their machine. Recumbents have long had their own online community. This forum is for those who enjoy a view over the hedge rather than a view up an exhaust pipe. This forum was started by Kevin Younge on the 18th March 2012. It hopefully fulfils a need for those who have questions about upright trikes and triking. Until now they have had nowhere to seek precise information. Browsing for trikes is often a lesson in frustration. As the forum grows it should become a valuable resource for tricyclists everywhere. Feel free to ask your questions or to share your experiences on or about three wheels. Whether you are a competitive type, or just like wandering the lanes and streets at your own pace, there is plenty of room here for all of us. Bring your good humour, politeness and enthusiasm for our unique pastime.
BTW: SPAMMERS WILL BE BANNED WITHOUT APPEAL AND YOUR DROPPINGS REMOVED WITHOUT LEAVING A TRACE.

| THE TRICYCLE ASSOCIATION|
The Tricycle Association is THE organisation for all upright tricyclists. i.e. Those who sit astride their machines on a saddle. The TA was established in 1928: History, racing, touring, time trialling, distinctive clothing and a busy social calendar all fall under its cheerful umbrella. Membership is still only a modest £10 a year. Which includes a copy of the TA Gazette at quarterly intervals. Always a fascinating read! It contains sales and wanted adverts for trikes as well.

A place to discuss how to become a competent and safe tricyclist completely from scratch. NO previous riding experience required. It's not as easy as it looks, is it? Learning to ride? We've been there. Done that. We can help you overcome your fears!
