Can Trikke's join the Friday or Sunday skate?

Postby ggeldenhuys » Tue Feb 12, 2013 4:30 pm

I would really love to join you guys. It looks like such a lot of fun. Unfortunately I don't skate, but rather trikke.

Years ago, 4 of us trikked through the streets of London on a weekend, at it was super cool. Years later, and I'm still trikking. So would it be okay to join you guys? Maybe starting with a Sunday Cruise to see how it goes.

For those that don't know what a Trikke is. It is a 3 wheel cambering vehicle. No pedaling or pushing - but rather a skating or skiing motion that makes it go. It is a small wheel vehicle. 6-12 inch wheels, depending on the model. I have the T12 model, which is 12 inch wheels, and has two disc brakes - so stopping is no problem. A trikke is also very agile - quick sharp turns to avoid people or potholes is easily accomplished.

The following Wikipedia site gives some more info and photos of a Trikke. There is also a small video showing a trikke in action. Trikking is the most fun you can have while exercising.

Can't have them in the body of the skate for safety reasons but they would be welcome behind the rear marshal where the bikes are.
