4 Best Adult Tricycles for 2020

4 Best Adult Tricycles for 2020 –  compares the features and looks at the pros and cons of four different tricycle models made by three different manufacturers. An adult tricycle is a great option for someone who may not have the balance needed for a two-wheeled bike or maybe likes the added security the three wheels of a trike provides, or for someone that has never learned to ride a bike. 

When I review a product(s), I only consider those that have earned a 4+ star rating. You may be able to find a less expensive trike, but for the most part, they have a lower customer rating.

In two previous posts, “Bicycles and Seniors – I Bet You Haven’t Forgotten How” and the “Best Exercise Equipment for Seniors.” There was mention of bicycles, and one of those options is the adult tricycle. If you haven’t read those two posts, you can click on them, and you will be taken to those articles.
