Social Venture - Ami Trishaw (Rikalau)

*** UPDATED April 15 2021 ***

Congratulations to our first 50 Trishaws owners all across Canada (British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario).

With the incredible worldwide demand for all bicycles and parts, lead times have greatly increased across the industry and we are now taking deposits for our next order scheduled to arrive Spring 2022.  


Cycles Toussaint established a social venture arm that strives to enable people of all walks of life to "Ride Their Journey".  The sole focus of our venture is to further enable the phenomenal growth of the Cycling Without Age movement within Canada.

Cycling Without Age works to improve the lives of the elderly or those less abled by promoting intergenerational relationships and providing an opportunity to connect with our neighbours, nature and fresh air.

Cycles Toussaint provides a Canadian designed trishaw bicycle that is durable, simple to ride and easy to service called Ami. The goal of our venture is to make it simple and easy to have our partners and passengers experience the "wind in their hair".  A portion of the cost of each trishaw is forwarded to Cycling Without Age to support the growth of this wonderful movement.

Similar to our classic Velo Routier Bicycle, Ami has a cream frame, silver component accents along with brown leather bike seat and hand grips.  The handsome wood grain passenger box is comfortably accentuated by brown seat cushions and seat belts.  Our robust xxx500 Watt electric motor, battery capacity and gearing selection will enable pilots the confidence to conquer a wide variety of terrain.
