OK, once you have the trike, how do you transport it??? Well, given how long it took me to get it together, breaking it down for transport and reassembling at the start of a ride did not seem feasible. Another approach would be to carry it on top of our van. But the basic trike (without options and add ons) weighs about 70 pounds. Sure, I can lift 70 pounds, but at the end of a long ride when I'm tired? Also, it's an awkward 70 pounds! We've got a receiver hitch on our van (used for a bike rack), so I bought a utility trailer that we can tow with the van. Its bed is 5' wide by 12' long. (The trike is over 11' long!)
