Can you use an adult trike to cycle long distances?
7th August, 2023
Adult trikes are more than suitable for long-distance cycling, especially for individuals with mobility issues or those who struggle to ride a traditional bicycle. The third wheel on adult tricycles offers extra stability, allowing riders to cycle long distances comfortably and with confidence.
Why are adult electric trikes good for long-distance cycling?
Adult electric trikes are ideal for long-distance cycling due to their combination of comfort, stability and electric assistance. The electric motor offers extra support while pedalling, allowing riders to cover longer distances with little additional effort.
Our dual-battery electric trikes are perfect for long-distance cycling. The batteries are used separately, meaning that our e-trikes have double the amount of battery life, helping riders cycle for twice as long and twice as far.

What to consider when cycling long distances on an adult trike?
Here are some key factors to consider when cycling long distances on an adult trike:
• Comfort and support: When cycling on an adult tricycle it’s important to maintain an upright posture. Our tricycle seat with backrest provides ample support, allowing you to cycle long distances comfortably. We also offer extra-wide tricycle seats for ultimate comfort on a long cycle.
• Terrain: Check your route to make sure your tricycle can handle whatever terrain you’ll come across when cycling. It may be best to only navigate your way through rougher terrain if you have a mountain trike.
• Electric trikes charge: Our adult electric trikes are designed to assist cyclists on longer rides, but it’s important to check their charge before setting off and monitor as your cycle. Take into consideration the distances outlined above.
