Do you think 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?

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 for adults far outweigh its cons. With an aluminum frame, 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 your back than other bikes. The low step-through makes it relatively easy to get on and off.
