Trikes are very unstable and going down a slope it is easy to flip them. Similar problems with the 3-wheel ATVs which have been replaced with 4-wheel models that are much safer.I have a 28 y/o special needs daughter, so I've been thinking about getting a bike but how do I bring her along? So I thought electric tricycle because I don know if she will peddle, also noise will be a huge factor so any suggestions? Thanks
She runs from noise like lawn mowers leaf blowersDescribe the noise situation please. Liberty Trike has a lot of happy owners. https://www.libertytrike.com/products/liberty-trike
Her disability is cognitive, so I don't know if she would peddle on one of the bikes that each person peddles one side. She is 28 but functions like an 18 month old, but physically is runs jumps normally. So I wouldn't trust her having control. I not young so I was thinking of something I would control but with a little helpCould you give us a little bit more info?
Since you mentioned that she may not pedal, is it something to do with her leg?
There are soooo many trikes out there, it's difficult to recommend without knowing a little bit info.
Here are a few examples, as you can see, there are way too many variations.
Sorry for not being clear, I'm not looking for her to navigate because she is like a toddler. I was thinking how can I get exercise and take her along but have help if I get tired.Sorry I think I'm getting a bit of conflicting information here.
You said she may not pedal, which sounded like you're hoping that she would pedal if she can.
At the same time, you are concerned about her safety if she was to pedal and take control.
eBikes are not like regular tricycle/bicycle where you can walk alongside.
(Unless you cut off the assist, because in my experience, I found that even at lowest level, it goes faster than walking speed)
It is capable of going 20mph or 28mph, depending on which class you get. (there's Class 1 and 2, which is 20mph and Class 3 which is 28mph)
Many of them come with a throttle as well. My point is, if an ebike was to take off, it's not something that you can easily catch up.
As fooferdoggie suggested, I think the tandem bike might be the way to go.
