      I plan on getting a simple single-speed Schwinn from Walmart. I believe schwinn only distribute that trike through Walmart. My first bike was a schwinn, and this baby reminds me a lot of it.

      I'm not a Walmart fan, but I have to say it warmed my heart to see all the reviews from older folks, disabled, or relatives of special needs kids who said that trike made it possible for them to get out on a bike path and feel more confident and comfortable with their bodies and balance and self-esteem. Awesome.

      I personally am pretty fit and can ride a two-wheeler, but I think trikes are simply cool and way handy for hauling stuff.

      Schwinn also makes a higher end trike that I would buy if I need the other gears.

      Did you google "adult tricycle"? Try "tririder".
