RECUMBENT TRIKES CANADA is an Orillia, Ontario dealer for CATRIKES.
This is our 13th year of operation as a small, home-based, enthusiast-run retirement business.
Our aim is to introduce interested people to the strengths and benefits of riding recumbent trikes, particularly Catrikes.

Developed in Winter Garden Florida, Catrikes have been refined over the years into a great recumbent trike.

Catrikes, and other quality trikes, offer a comfortable ride, much like pedalling a 30 speed chaise lounge ;-)
Handling is very good in all models and exceptional in such trikes as Expedition and 700.
Catrikes feel like a cross between a great handling sports car, and a go-cart.

Trikes offer the life enhancing benefits of exercise, mobility, fresh air, comfort and fun... all at the same time!
Recumbent trikes are for anybody... anybody who appreciates these qualities!

Are they really as comfortable as they look?
Once set up properly, I get the feeling that I could ride all day in comfort. In fact, I have done so, many times.

Four times I've participated in the National 24-Hour Challenge, in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I've never gone less than 250 miles in a day. My personal best is 280 miles in a 24 hour period. Compared to 'real' athletes, that is not great, but for someone well past his mid 60s who doesn't train regularly and is not a serious athlete, I think it's respectable.

My personal best in Calvin's 12-Hour Challenge in Springfield, Ohio, was 185 miles in 12 hours. Enough to take some pride in, but again, not at the level of real athletes.

Back in 2001, I rode a recumbent trike from Orillia, Ontario to Charlottetown, PEI. carrying my tent, camping gear and much of my food and supplies. It was a comfortable 20 day ride of about 2000 km. On the trike it was a pain-free experience.

My wife and I have entered the week-long "Bike Florida - supported cycle tour" in March four times - riding our Catrikes.

Also, on two occasions I've ridden the "Golden Triangle". This supported tour starts at Castle Mountain Junction, in Alberta, and climbs over the Great Divide to Golden, British Columbia, on to Radium, B.C. the second day, then back to Castle Mountain again over the Great Divide the third day. This averages about 100 km per day.

A couple of times I've ridden in the Rideau Lakes Tour, which goes from Ottawa to an overnight at Queen's University in Kingston and returns the next day... about 100 miles per day.

I wouldn't consider long distance events on anything but a recumbent. My wrists, neck, bottom, back would never tolerate a long and intense ride without pain.
On a trike - no problem!!!

Catrikes are a fine piece of sporting equipment for virtually everyone,
but definitely the most rewarding aspect of selling Catrikes is seeing what they can do for some people
who otherwise would have to give up cycling altogether due to a variety of challenges.

People who suffer from debilitating strokes, dizziness, and various injuries,
have often found that they can return to the pleasure and therapeutic exercise
that cycling provides, through a recumbent trike.

Here is the story of an injured Canadian Peacekeeper whose life was changed by a Catrike!

ALWAYS KEEP TIRE PRESSURES WITHIN RECOMMENDED RANGE !!! It's printed on the sidewall of the tire.

For best performance I go with the higher recommended figure on the side of your particular tire.
The only time I don't inflate to the highest recommendation is if the bike will be sitting in a closed car at the height of summer - when extremely high temperatures will cause air in the tire to increase in pressure and it may blow out the tire.
