a tricycle ?
I've not seen one for years.
OK they're not best suited to London roads but I used to see them regularly and mostly with older folk onboard and I often imagined myself on one in later years ( assuming I get there ! )

Saw a modified tricycle yesterday, when I was getting onto the Plymouth to Exeter train.
I had my Brompton, and the man getting on before me was on a tricycle with an extended front wheel.
The 'pedals' were up at hand-height since his legs were disabled.
He used the wheelchair ramp to get onto the train, which was then handy for me to push the Brompton up before folding it.

We had an elderly gentleman who rode one round here. Sadly I have to report that he was knocked off it and killed in recent weeks, somewhere in Leigh.
I like the look of them though. Ideal for carrying the shopping on local trips!

I know someone in Telford, who bought a Pashely trike so she could take her two pugs along for the ride

What happened the classic trikes I used to see old men on when I wer a lad? You know the ones, usually black with some sort of 'bread bin' for a carrier on the back.
Can you still buy them?
