Activities

Tricycle Association activities are many and varied with many events during the year both social and sporting.

Our members use trikes for a variety of activities and for some the trike is their only form of transport. In addition to everyday transport for shopping, commuting etc trikes are ideal for touring and some members also compete in time trialling events and RRA (Road Records Association) record attempts.  The Association also runs a Leaguecompetition  which ensures that all competitors, even the less able, get a chance to compete for a trophy.

Some other useful sites to visit for more details of our wide range of activities can be seen on the Links page.

Time trialling events will often form the focus for social activities and many members who do not actually compete come along to join in the social side and to watch the event (or even to join in by marshalling or helping to man the tea bar). Camping, caravanning, youth hostelling weekends take place for a number of weekends away during the year, and even an International weekend when we have joined in a village fete in St Marsault in France or enjoyed the hospitality of Asse in Belgium. In 2010 the UK hosted it at Blenheim Palace as part of the October cycling festival there and 2013 saw the International Tricycle Challenge at Fowlmead Cycle Park near Deal in Kent.

All tricycle riders can get involved by submitting a record of their mileage covered by tricycle on a ANNUAL TRICYCLE MILEAGE AWARDS Form.doc to the Tricycle Mileage Chart Organiser who will issue certificates to those involved at the National Reunion or by post.

During the winter months the ‘social season’ is extremely hectic. Following the National Dinner and Prize Presentation at the end of October, the regions organise their own annual ‘get together’ each in their own individual style.

The Tricycle Association offers very good fellowship and can form the basis of a richly fulfilling social and sporting calendar.
