I am a retired police officer. When I turned 65 I had an open heart operation. I’ve owned a TerraTrike for about four years. Within six days after I got home from the hospital, 10 days from the operation, I started slowly riding my TerraTrike. It got me back on the road to recovery faster than normal.

My heart doctor was so impressed, he brought one.

Thank you

I just recently bought the Rover. That is the very best decision I have ever made regarding buying something to ride. I’ve always ridden a 2 wheeled bike but had to have a hip replacement and a year after that I tried to ride my bike, couldn’t get my leg up high enough and fell backwards smack on the back of my head. I wasn’t hurt the least bit and it was a very hard fall. So I started looking for something fun, that would strengthen my legs and yet be comfortable and safe. The Rover is just exactly what I want. I so enjoy it. The day I got it I rode like the wind

which at 72 years of age is so exciting and wonderful. Thank you so much for such a superior machine. I’m just enjoying it so very much. I’m the talk of my neighborhood and I look forward to riding every day for years to

come. I’m Just so thankful that you invented it.

I got my Rambler in mid-June. Here in Bloomington, IN, we have a park called the B-Line Trail that is an old railroad bed. On south of the B-Line is the Bloomington Rail-Trail, again an old railroad bed. The B-line is 3.1 miles long. When I got my trike a ride on the B-Line was the first thing I did. Being a 60+ year-old grandmother and very out or shape, I started slowly. Now, I’m up to doing the whole B-line from top to bottom and back plus about a mile on the Rail-Trail. I love my Rambler so much that I can’t get the smile off my face when I ride. There are a lot of bikes, walkers, and joggers on the trail. The joggers usually don’t look like there have a good time at all! One day last week, one of them called to me as I went by, “You are entirely too happy!”

We rented a Terra Trike over the Labor day weekend for our 14-year old daughter. She loved it. This was the first time she was able to ride a bike. She has scoliosis and had to have back surgery a few years ago. The surgeon said that she probably would never learn to ride a bicycle because of balance issues that her s-curve has caused. So, Labor Day weekend was a true blessing with the TerraTrike. We actually went on a family bike ride! She had a smile on her face every time she whizzed by us.Thank you for bringing her and us such joy!

Last year I underwent 3 level lumbar fusion from S-1 to L-3 and thought this is very GOOD info for TerraTrike. I’m 58 and have to be very careful with my back going forward and I’m blown away that there is zero discomfort while riding or afterwards!.The lumbar support is perfect and my last ride was 6 miles . NO PAIN or DISCOMFORT. I’m totally geeked!I spent 30 years as a Sales Professional and this is a monumental product for everyone with lumbar spinal issues and want you folks to know that this is a truly safe way to get a safe aerobic workout ! Well done and thank you my friends!Oh, I almost forgot, you are an American / Michigan manufacturer. Amen to

that!

I have been looking for a way off the couch and recently went looking for a recumbent bike. I am 62 and diabetic so I need to lose weight and exercise. Closest dealer which had any was 90 to 400 miles away. Stopped at every bike shop in the area.NO ONE had one I could sit in and see if it would fit. Finally found a dealer with the TerraTrike in stock.A lot closer and they were very inviting. I was hooked from the moment I sat down, but the icing on the cake was the offer of a test drive. Short ride later I was putting the Rover 8 in the back of my pickup.Since then I have ridden the trike 3 days in a row. I look forward to it. Question being how can you sleep at night knowing you are getting others addicted to your trikes???Thank you for a great product which is fun to ride. Now I have to trick it out darn it! Hello I am Richard and I am a Bent Trike Addict.


Larry (the cranky old man) Weber

Today I picked up my Sportster from Angletech here in Colorado Springs.Wow kiddo, I am delighted with the trike, it was worth the wait. I have knee problems and after spending almost two hours talking to Kelvin, riding, sitting, adjusting, playing and adjusting again – I HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO KNEE PAIN.This is wonderful, I have no knee pain. (my Doctor loves this and is warning me not to overdo this at first – take time to condition she says)Thank you again for your help and support. My friend (an ex military nurse), who ordered her Trike the same day as I did, has not received hers yet but Kelvin

will call her tonight. I’m not sure he understood how important the update is to us. Yes he’s super busy, but a phone call will relieve a month’s worth of anxiety.Thank You again


Steve Cochrane

Three years ago I was diagnosed with CML Leukemia and Malignant Mastocytosis. Both are in the same family of blood cancers. Because I have both they are not curable. The best they could offer was chemo twice a day to extend my life. After 2 years I had to leave my job and take disability. Six moths later I could no longer drive safely and had to give up the keys.For the same reason I could not drive a car with 4 wheels I could not ride a bike with 2 wheels. The winter passed and I had cabin fever. I was also getting weaker and needed a way to exercise. 5 of my friends that all live outside of the state I live in decided to help me. One of them got on the Internet and picked a bike shop to call. As it turned out they were a dealer for Terra Trike. They liked the safety of the trike and purchased it. The owner of the shop delivered it to my home personally.I thank God for putting such good friends in my life. With the trike I have some of my freedom back and get the exercise I need.

I bought my Rover in Jan 11,and started riding the same day. Since then I’ve ridden nearly everyday,unless Momma’s todo list needs something done around the house,and you know how that works! Anyway,living in the desert brings about it’s own challenges.The first being the heat from June-Oct. I ride on average 6-12miles per day (see Momma’s todo list above).For one I ride early in the morning and late in the evening.I ride mostly in my neighborhood and yes,the groupies are out! Many count the miles off as I go by their homes,and yes sometimes a raging chihuahua will try to eat my tires….”Bring it beast!” Last summer I only missed 3 days of riding and that was for vacation time with the family. Riding everyday just gets me going for the rest of the day and yup, I sleep like a baby!


Mike & Debbie Rodgers

A few weeks back, my wife and I went down to Council Bluffs to Xtreme Wheels and test drove the only TT they had left….the Sportser. Great gang of guys there. We also drove over to Des Moines to Barr Bikes and looked at the Tour II elite (with upgrades) and the Rover.Inventories move quickly. I think one reason for your success is that you make a great bike at a reasonable price. When people look at a CAT or and ICE, they’re gonna come shopping for a TerraTrike…which by no means is a lesser quality compromise.The trikes have spoiled us for riding anything else. We go down by the River bike trails and get “THAT LOOK”. We even try to “sell” the trikes (go to the dealer). I think we have the only trikes in Sioux City. There are a few Recumbent bikes here, but who wants one of those????? We enjoy the LOW LIFE.


Terry and Sandra Brezina

I just received my TerraTrike Rambler this last Tuesday. My wife and I both ride it. My wife really likes the trike and I found that I have to take turns with her in riding it. It is just a fun way to get around. I am going to take it on the New River trail ride in the morning when it is cool. Thanks for designing and building a great American Made product.


Kristi Hammonds

Just wanted to let you know how wonderful the Terra Trike Rambler is!! I have MS and have not ridden in years did not feel like my balance was good enough, well the Terra Trike changed all that, I feel safe, comfortable and above all free!! I have named mine “Liberty” because it gives me the freedom to be outside, moving and enjoying physical ativities that usually I cannot participate in, Thank you again, keep up the great work!!

We’ve had a Rover tandem since April 6 and have already gone 100 miles on it in the Ann Arbor area.We have never before received such universal approval for anything we have done! Children, teenagers, younger adults, older adults — all look, recognize, and smile or stick up their thumbs, or say “cool bike” or “awesome” or other words to that effect.In addition to its fitness benefits, this trike is also a great cure for melancholy.


Mike Schultz

I can not tell you how much fun it is to ride my new Tour! My wife and I used to bicycle tour on mountain bikes. The last trip we did was the C & O Canal, from Cumberland, MD., to Washington, DC. After that, I changed jobs and was too busy to ride. Both of us were also uncomfortable on the mountain bikes and lost interest. I got her the trike I sent you photos of, right after we got back from the C & O Canal trip but did not get a trike for myself. This spring I bought one and it is as much fun on the trike today as I remember when I was a kid on the bike! The bike represented my ticket to freedom and adventure as a kid and even as an adult. The trike is my ticket to that again even though I am in my late 50’s.Every one talks about the grin you have when you ride a trike and I did not understand that until now. I am grinning from ear to ear! Thanks for making our trikes! They are great!

Just a note about a fellow bike club member’s rover 8 spd. This past summer we did a bike contest, i.e., a cone weave. I rode my Gary Fisher Piranha and Don’s Rover. I bested the Piranha time through the cones by 33 seconds! I was wasting no time with the Piranha MTB and was astounded, as was everyone else, by the HUGE time advantage of the Rover.The secret was the 360 turn at the end of the dozen traffic cones set on a gravel drive. I could not turn about the last cone on two wheels (on gravel) as fast as I could on three. A hard lean and turn to the right with the right brake clamped whipped the Rover around and I was hammering the pedals.The Rover is quite a machine. The Rambler should prove even better!Our bike club has ordered an 8 spd for our Road Soldier fleet here at the Ohio Veterans Home.Good job, TerraTrike!


The Silver Family

Jacksonville, NC

Our 11 year old son LOVES his TerraTrike! He has always dreamed of riding a bike with his brother and friends but hasn’t been able to due to a disability. Born an above knee amputee, Declan loves the outdoors and enjoys the freedom and fun his new TerraTrike provides. He summed it up in one word…. AWESOME!! I couldn’t agree more. The smile on his face and the joy in his heart is proof that buying a TerraTrike is wonderful investment.Thank you so much for all of the help and great service you provided from ordering to delivery to our doorstep! You guys are the best!


Jake Scott

Jacksonville, FL

In early August I was struck by a drunk driver at a red light and broke my back, I had a 4 level thoracic fusion. I am a young 28 yr old former college offensive lineman and now a high school football coach and teacher, due to the crash I lost my job as a teacher and have been laying around losing all of my muscle for the past 3 months. I have recently decided I needed to start exercising again to try and regain some health for myself, so I took myself to a few bike shops her in Jacksonville, FL saw some recumbents with 2 wheels and really liked the comfort. It wasn’t until I went to Lakeshore Schwinn Cyclery that I saw the Rover I sat in it and immediately fell in love after riding it for a short time I knew I had to have it and bought it right there on the spot, and then decided I just had to ride it again immediately so they let me ride it down the road. I am going to get it fitted for me tomorrow and I can’t wait to bring it home and get on some of these bike trails these things are perfect for my injury and for anyone who has sever problems with backs or other joints that prevent them from riding normal bikes, I am so excited I can’t sleep thank you TerraTrike for making these and thanks to Lakeshore Schwinn for being so helpful and giving me a reasonable price for this amazing trike I hope it lasts forever.

Mike Clancy

Waukegan, IL

I’m a slightly overweight, out of shape, 61 years old veteran who, because of physical problems, can’t drive and have some balance problems. I miss my independence and the sensations of speed and wind in my hair (what little there is of it). I was never a big bike fanatic but I always had one. After seeing a recumbent trike in a background shot on some TV show I started researching them. In my case everything pointed to a Rambler model TerraTrike. I just had to test drive one so my wife and I made the pilgrimage from the Chicago area up to Kentwood, MI. to TerraTrike. We were greeted by smiling staff members and when I stated that I was there for a test ride a very helpful, knowledgeable and pretty sales associate (Lydia) assisted me. She adjusted a Rambler Elite model for my size, explained the steering, brake and gearing systems and turned me loose on the indoor test track. I was thrilled with its performance and after a few NASCAR laps (no right turns) I asked if I could take it out to the parking lot. She opened the door for me and put a safety flag on the trike and away I went. It was comfortable, smooth and easy to operate and my balance issues were no problem. I was surprised at the turning radius and the ease of shifting. And above all it was FUN! I going to order one for delivery in the early spring and I can hardly wait.If you are thinking of getting a TerraTrike by all means go to the source and try one out. The staff are friendly and eager to help you. You won’t be disappointed.


Bill Cote

OK, after back surgery years ago, I gave up conventional bike riding as regardless of bike set-up, I was in pain. I researched recumbents and was not thrilled with 2 wheels. Then I discovered TT! I located a Cruiser at the Bike Man in Maine, drove up from NH, rode the trike for an hour, bought it on site, loaded it directly into my Volvo wagon and drove home. I have never enjoyed biking as much as now. While safety is a concern, the view from “down below” is gratifying. I can soak in thesurroundings with confidence. Thank you TT for liberating a near retiree.

I’m not sure exactly what “Part of the Solution” means but here goes. My new Rambler trike arrived on Friday and it\’s just AMAZING!! Because of the bad weather here in Algonac, MI, I’ve only ridden it around the block 3 times (about 3/4 of a mile). This is a fabulous bike I er mean trike especially for an 80 year old geezer like me. In fact, it’s great for any age. Tomorrow the weather looks good so I can hardly wait for an extended ride.
