Are you thinking it’s time to get outside and enjoy some exercise, take in some sites, enjoy the great outdoors? Are you also thinking that the days of riding a bike are gone? Maybe you have stability issues that make riding a two-wheel bike just something you don’t want to risk. Have you thought about an adult tricycle? One that gives you the stability of three wheels and large enough for an adult. The Schwinn Meridian Adult Tricycle is a great alternative to the traditional two-wheeled bike. In this post, Schwinn Meridian Adult Tricycle Review, I explore the features, as well as the pros and cons, that will give you some insight into whether this bike is the right choice for you.

Schwinn is a company that has been around since 1895. The biggest drawback to this bike is the difficulty in assembling. However, Schwinn does have a video that shows the steps needed to assemble. If you are not a handy type of person, who is good at assembling products, I would suggest, if feasible, paying the extra money to have a bike shop assemble it for you and bypassing the frustration of doing it yourself.
The pros of the Schwinn Meridian Tricycle far outweigh the cons. With an adjustable seat and handlebars, it allows for personalizing a fit for your own body. The handlebars allow for a relaxed upright riding position putting less stress on you back than other bikes. The low step-through makes it relatively easy to get on and off.
Be aware that riding a three-wheel tricycle is not the same as riding a two-wheeled bike. Before riding your bike, watch a video explaining how to ride a tricycle in my post 4 Best Adult Tricycles for 2020 – Review & Buyers Guide. This is also an excellent article to read if you’re not set on purchasing the Schwinn Meridian Tricycle.
Remember, with any bike you need to ride safely and obey the laws in your particular town. To watch a brief video about the basic rules of the road, go to my article, Bicycles and Seniors – I Bet You Haven’t Forgotten How.
As with all exercise, there is a risk of injury involved while riding a bike. Be sure to consult with your doctor beforehand to ensure this is a safe and viable activity for you.
When you think of bike brands, its likely that Schwinn comes to mind. Founded in 1895, its name is synonymous with bikes. The Schwinn Meridian Adult Tricycle is part of this legacy. With the variety of colors and speeds, it seems there is something for just about everyone.
