Trikke day afternoon

Trikkes_0900

The review has been a long time coming, but it’s still hopefully worth sharing. After a short but intense obsession in pursuit of a trikke, we were able to realise the dream a few weeks ago in the heart of the sunny CBR.

For those of you unfamiliar with trikkes, they’re a type of scooter. There’s three large rollerblade style wheels and you rock back and forth to generate motion. Once you get moving, the action is very much like rollerblading or skiing and they are rather awesome. So awesome in fact, that we did it two days in a row. It’s not a particularly taxing activity, hence our non-exercise garb in the pics.

The folks at real fun adventures hire out various size trikkes (amongst other equipment) down by the lake at commonwealth place every weekend. In the hour we borrowed them, we managed to get from there, to the yacht club and back with time aplenty to spare. The only hazards we struck were a few heckling fishermen and generally being a bit of a freakshow. Definately something to do with plenty of others around.

We’re set for another Trikke day in the future. Keep a watch out here for more details or, as always, let us know if you’re interested.

Well done.
Give us a yell when you come up to Brissie.
