An Electric Tricycle Has Motor Assist That Makes Pedaling Optional

 

Riding an electric tricycle lets you take a break and let the motor do the work. It's kind of cool to be able to sit back and cruise without pedaling.

You can pedal for exercise or just cruise for the fun of it. Since it is a trike and not a bike it has a more stable platform. Also, you can stop and put both feet on the ground while seated.

Electric trikes are great for a casual ride to run a few errands or stop and chat with friends and neighbors. Their popularity is growing in retirement communities where they are often used in lieu of golf carts which are much more expensive to buy and maintain.

Most electric tricycles will charge within a few hours and have a maximum speed of 15 miles per hour. Some like the Di Blasi R34 shown below are fold-able for easy storage and transport.
