Its been a good summer with lots trike sold and  alot of fun rides. THis past week I was interviewed and featured on The Laidback Bike Report. An online Streaming show that focuses on Recumbents . Gary Solomon put out a call for a new segment about people with interesting recumbents. SO I responded and somehow got the first interview. Please sit back and enjoy the show.

4th in a series on why ride recumbents. It's A great video of testmonials on how recumbent trikes and bikes significantly enhance the lives of people with special needs. (It brought a wee small tear to me eye)
Hearing these testimonies and seeing how trikes enhance our clients lives is one of the main reasons we are in the business of promoting and selling trikes.

Video from Steve Erickson , Phil Allen;  sponsored by both Catrike and Easy Street Recumbents of Austin, Texas.

I am selling my Sinner Mango classic #137 . I absolutely love riding this machine. It crazy fast, weather proof, comfy, and very attention getting. I just have come to the conclusion I am too big for it (phat)and  I have a couple of trike projects I am thinking doing. The Velo is great for commuting and really going fast.

Last week we had the opportunity to have a booth and speak at the Medichair Education day.  The host (Medichair) did a registration count and we addressed 224 occupational therapists, physiotherapists, and funding agencies. Plus there was WCB, AADL, Easter Seals, Children’s Ability, MS society, Alzheimer's, Cerebreal Palsy society and a few other like agencies in attendance.

I gave 15 minute presentation that included a few videos about the benefits of recumbent trikes for people with special needs, Including a clip from this Video of a young guy with Cerebral Palsy:


That clip really impressed them.

It really worked out well as the previous speaker really emphasized the role of exercise for those with special needs like Alzheimer's. Exercise really seems to postpone the advance of several of these disorders. What a lead in!  We are all about exercise! Of all the booths and speakers, only myself and another individual and our booths promoted ways for exercise.

It seemed that a majority of the therapists and agencies stopped by our booth for info and brief test ride or sit on. We gave out all the Terra Trike (total over 125) and ICE brochures we had  at our booth during the breaks during the day

Several of them have their own in house groups that we said we could come to them for a brief session and for their staff, clients, etc. to test ride a couple of ours demos.

Terra Trike had a slogan that says: We Are Part of the Solution. But if you don’t know we are out there…
Most of these Therapist's didn’t even know trikes like this existed until last week. Now they do.  Now the FUN part begins  - Follow up!
