We are used to hearing/reading a certain number of miles per gallon for our motor vehicles but how do we measure the distance we can cover on our trikes. A friend used to joke around saying he gets 36 miles per apple riding his trike. There was a lot of truth to that. He brought an apple with him on every ride and would stop somewhere along the way to eat it. We may not all eat apples while we are out riding but many of us do take some source of food along and others like myself stop at a restaurant to eat while we are out. My point is … hmmm … what is my point? I know I had one when I started out writing this. Our motor vehicles get us from point A to point B running on gasoline. They can go a lot faster and keep us dry and comfortable (warm in cold weather and cool in hot weather) but at a price. Our trikes can do the same but much slower and we are exposed to the elements. But hey, an apple is pretty cheap compared to gasoline. And depending upon how far we are going and traffic conditions our trikes might get us there just as fast or even faster.
So if someone asks you what kind of mileage you get riding your trike you can tell them 36 miles per apple or whatever. Some people are all into the matter of not polluting our atmosphere with engine exhaust and use their trikes as their only means of transportation. So the idea of moving down the road or trail powered by apples flicks their Bics. All I can say is … whatever the case is …
KEEP ON TRIKIN’
A FREE GIFT awaits you!
Just so they don’t throw their apple cores onto the ground. That is polluting too!
