be able to ride at the beach or other interesting places?
Although a trike is larger and heavier than a bike they can still be transported without a hassle if you have a vehicle with a trailer hitch. They are simple to mount and safe to use.
The True rack shown below can accommodate one tricycle, one recumbent tricycle, or two 2 wheel recumbent bikes with a few simple adjustments and no special tools. It is adjustable for weight balance and you can even reverse it for convenience.
