The Picador tricycle is the perfect cycle for short hops around town. The padded and sprung saddle keeps you upright and comfortable no matter what the road conditions, whilst the large rear basket is perfect for carrying your shopping with ease. The Picador is just as at home in the countryside, where full mudguards keep you clean and dry. The powerful dual hub and calliper braking system gives you an unbeatable sense of reliability and safety.
Traditional tricycle frame with stable and upright riding position: an easy to mount/dismount frame with comfortable upright riding position that allows you a good view of other road users and the scenery and the added bonus of encouraging a healthy posture. The frame is hand-built with an attention to detail that only a frame crafted by hand can possess.
Classic 3 speed tricycle hub gears: The 3-speed hub-gear system provides easy shifting, low range gears and ease of maintenance. The gears can be changed whilst stationary which allows for the perfect getaway from junctions.
Secure parking brake: with an easily accessible activation button on the brake lever, it keeps the tricycle stationary when parked so you don’t need to worry about it rolling away!
Reflectors for added visibility: front, rear and pedal reflectors all help to keep you safer on the road at night.
Effective front double-braking with hub and calliper combination: this system uses an easily adjusted calliper side-pull brake and a fully enclosed all-weather hub brake which act together to give the stopping power and security that a tricycle needs.
Light-weight, durable mudguards: protect you from mud and water splashes, providing all-weather practicality.
Large rear wire tricycle basket: A capacious rear wire basket with a hinged top which can be locked with a small padlock. This basket is ideal for shopping, gardening tools, or recycling trips.
High comfort padded saddle: with elastomer springs to help cushion impacts.
Quick-release seat post: Allows saddle height to be adjusted and secured with ease and without the need for tools.
Protective chainguard: a streamlined chainguard that protects you from greasy oil marks and helps prevent your attire from catching in the chain.
Tyres with puncture protection: With a tyre tread profile that offers good grip and effective puncture protection belt made of natural rubber.

Finding Your Cycle...
All kinds of bikes for all kinds of people. That’s our thinking at Get Cycling, and we demonstrate, adapt and supply what is probably the world’s widest range of specialised cycles.

We have child-carrying options, cargo cycles, tandems, adapted cycles for special needs, folding bikes, fun bikes, tricycles, companion cycles, multi-seaters, recumbents and much more. If we don’t have a new model of what you need then we may well have a refurbished version. In any case, please talk to us so that we can check that the cycle you have in mind is right for you.
