Tricycle gangs, not to be confused for tricycle trafficking rings, are gangs of "thugs" who, much like motorcycle gangs, (stereo-typically) wear leather clothes, dog tags displaying their name, and dog collar wristbands while (much to the opposite of motorcycle gangs) riding tricycles around town and fighting other tricycle gangs. Being part of a tricycle gang is not technically illegal, but the actions that come with being part of one usually are.
Rise of the Tricycle Gangs Edit
Around the beginning of the 20th century, when tricycles were rising in popularity, gangs of "rough n' tough" adults started to ride them as a joke, but found that riding a tricycle is much easier than riding a motor- or bi- cycle, thus causing a larger and larger amount of people switching from motorcycles to tricycles, which were also more cost-effective.
Since most motorcycle gangs were now switching to tricycles, they became their own category of gang. Tricycle gang members are, ironically, much more tough and ruthless than their motorcycle counterparts.
If one is to ever come across a gang of leather-wearing adults on tricycles, it is advised to get out of the situation as fast as possible, as your life is very much in danger.
Known Gangs and Their Leaders Edit
There are five big tricycle gangs with known names and leaders;
- The Chicago Trikes (led by "Bald T")
- The Tricky Trike Tream (led by Tristopher Trao)
- The New York Triforce (led by Steve Zirwing) (no affiliation to the Legend of Zelda "triforce" nor the Triforce of Tricycles (a tricycle trafficking ring))
- Triple T Tricycles (led by Theodore T. Tuggington)
- Born 2 Trike (led by Ted Deebare, Jr)
- Tricycle gangs, unlike tricycle trafficking, are still very popular
- Some question why tricycle gangs exist, as tricycles were mainly made for children
