Took my trice for the first time!

Flash and I had a lovely ride into downtown. A trike ride feels more like fun than transportation - it's nice to have a little recreational ride and then realize I've gotten to class on time.

Trike Partner

I just got a new Trice Q for Christmas and I would like a lady trike partner. I know there are trike riders in town and I'm hoping y'all might come out of the wood work.

Want to join me on rides...

Maybe I've been watching too many crime dramas - but doesn't that almost seem pre-meditated? How could something like that be an accident?

Clever Cycles has something like that. Not sure if it's precisely what you're looking for, but it's worth a look. It's more like a shoulder bag than a messenger bag.

That doesn't sound bad, honestly - but be careful on Lloyd. They're not all that bicycle aware.
