Anyone on a trike wearing blue - arriving at Liverpool Street Station at about 10am today on the Norwich-London train?

black - blue - 10 (though the train was from Norfolk).

The 'bent was a black trike (single wheel at the back - is that the same on all?). Very low (the guy was bent over trying to push it along the platform) with side controls.

We have a Catrike owner Norwich way with a black Expedition, if I recall the owner did go to London on a semi regular basis although I am not aware if he ever takes his trike. Generally trike owners tow the trike by lifting the back wheel so it seems odd he was pushing it, sounds like a new owner.

eeee the cave man drag, normally accompanied by mumbling commentary, to whit "sodding council mumble mumble sodding call that a mumble mumbl bicycle track mumble mumble :angry:". is it nice or a bit big brother that given a vague description and general locality a trikeonaut can normally be identified :sad:

Yup. Fairly sure it was one of those - what with the head rest and all. Had a garmin or tomtom attached to the side.

Maybe he was some sort of one man band then?

Two wheels at the front = tadpole trike, by the way. Two wheels at the back = delta.


I think I'd say that tadpole is more common among recumbent trikes, but delta isn't uncommon, if that makes sense. The lower ones certainly tend to be tadpoles.
