G'day Stephen

Welcome to 'bentdom and to the forum.

You'd better edit your user profile and put your location in. I had trouble working out where you were until you said the scene is quiet in Adelaide. Can you edit the title of your thread to say "Social Ride - Adelaide" please?

Cheers,
Graeme

I live in Adelaide but I live in Salisbury area so it is abit far for me to ride to prospect and then on for a social ride then home again, maybe one day I could fit the bike in my ford wagon and come and meet you.

How much do you like your trike? Do you find the width an issue through bollards, dividers etc when riding on bike paths? Trikes are becoming more common which is a great thing IMO :D

hi storm nice to hear from some one in adelaide
distsnce is not a problem as mine folds up and i can come to your area also there is a great bike path behind salisbury shopping centre up to the old spot hotel
the trike is great as i mentioned it folds in half without having to remove the clain
the width is not a problem it fits through a standard size door & that is one of the many reasons i purchaced the trike
cont make it this weekend as have a few kids partys to take mu daughter to but i do go to victoria park racecourse on sunday mornings between10 & 2 pm and see them there and also ride the track with them as they practice might see you there :D :D :D

Social ride

There are some guys part of the adelaide pedal prix community who are organising a fun ride around Adelaide in January, if anyone is interested in joining in for a cruise with the PP trikes I'm sure they would be very accomodating, I would say there will be some bare trikes and uprights that will go along for the ride.
