Sacramento California TerraTrike dealer, Laid Back Cycles was featured prominently in the Merced Sun-Star newspaper Sunday. Laid Back Cycles owner Mickey O’Brien was at the California state fair this week and the article was about his appearance there and the rising popularity of recumbent Trikes.
Tricycles are for tots, right? Fair Oaks businessman Mickey O’Brien is betting that’s not the case. If you’re a baby boomer with health issues, O’Brien predicts that your three-wheeling days may soon return.
O’Brien opened Laid Back Cycles in Fair Oaks a year and a half ago to catch a ride on what he sees as an upcoming trend: more boomers buying recumbent tricycles when their backs, shoulders or wrists can no longer handle the stress or balancing requirements of upright road bikes.
