Anyone near Rugby willing to help

Post by PAB855 »

I have a friend who lives1.5 miles north of Rugby who is a longstanding CTC member, but who has developed a balance problem. I am exploring the possibility of getting him interested in changing to a recumbent trike. Unfortunately I am nearly 300 miles from him and cannot let him enjoy the experience by trying our ICE Adventure. I was wondering if there was anyone in the area who might be able to let him see one in the flesh. It's tricky bearing in mind the current lockdown restrictions, but any suggestions would be welcome. A look may be all that can be expected . A test ride currently may be too much to expect, but in the laid back world there's always a solution somehow.

I have emailed him relating our experiences with the trike, but have yet to receive a reply, so please just look on this as a very tentative step.

Cheers

Yes... but virus concerns at the moment

ICE Trike dealers can be found via this map and usually have demo bikes to try or discuss.

If he is willing to travel I would recommend calling Kevin at DTek not too far away from him and once lock down lifts Kevin has a fleet of trikes to try, one of his taster session might help your friend decide.

Updates have been happening offline.

The various suggestions are all good though ;)

Didn't think West country sold ice trikes these days but could be wrong.

Hope the OPs friend gets sorted.

Isn't there a place in Shrewsbury that do ICE trikes?
If I had a baby elephant, I would put it on a recumbent trike so that it would become invisible.

Derby is a bit closer, but if I was going that far I’d head to Cambridge.

OP is sorted, but my offer stands in general to people on here (and referrals).
