Welcome to my new blog! Over the next few weeks, I will begin posting articles about my new hobby of Trikking. This is an established, yet niche sport which is great fitness and great fun. I know many of you have never seen one of these unique vehicles before, and will have a lot of questions about them. Some of you may have been considering trying one for a while, but have not yet found enough information or courage to get you started. Still others may be experienced riders looking to meet others who share their passion for Trikkes. It is my hope that this blog will appeal to all of you, regardless of your prior experiences. Because I’m fairly new at the sport and still learning about it, I invite you to check back regularly and learn with me.
I live in the beautiful Lehigh Valley in eastern Pennsylvania. For those that don’t know the area, it’s scenic and hilly, and initially seems like a strange place to learn to ride a vehicle that excels on flat land. I’ve never been one to shy away from a good challenge, so I did some exploring. My search has turned up many nice, flat places to enjoy Trikking here, which I will share with you as I ride them. I am also just beginning to learn hill-climbing, so new areas will open up to me here as I master that skill.
This blog will be about so much more than just the Trikke and places to ride it though. My primary goal is to build a community of riders from all walks of life. I plan to organize some rides in the Lehigh Valley so we can meet and get to know each other. I’d love to hear from people in other parts of the country and world to hear about their experiences, trails and communities as well. You never know when a road trip or Trikke event will bring us together.
My other hope is to encourage those of you who’ve shunned physical fitness over the years to get up off the couch and have some fun. I’m guilty-as-charged when it comes to having packed on way too many pounds during my decades as a desk-jockey, but I have now begun my journey back towards wellness.
Discovering the Trikke changed my outlook on this, and I enjoy it so much that now I can’t imagine not getting out and riding it. Many of you likely find yourselves in the same place in life, so I will also include other information on health, nutrition, exercise and mental well-being that will help you get started on your wellness journey.
Stay tuned for coming articles to get to know me and the world of Trikke better. Drop me a line to let me know about your adventures and experiences. I’ll look forward to getting to know you too.
It’s time to rock and roll!!
