Recumbent tadpole trike: ICE Adventure FS Y03591

Why buy a trike at my age?
They say it's never too late to start some exercise. I have not cycled or otherwise exerted myself since the 1950s when I used to save the 3d bus fares to and from school.

Why a tricycle and not a bicycle?
It doesn't fall over when you stop, so neither do I, even on the steepest climb. It's ergonomically efficient and comfortable - we're designed for chairs, not saddles.

“Men do not quit playing because they grow old; they grow old because they quit playing.”
(Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.)
