United Trikers Australia (UTA) was formed in 2000 by a group of trikers who shared the common goal of riding and enjoying the fellowship of other trikers. From its humble beginning the not for profit, nonpolitical club has grown to over 250 members Australia wide and has a diverse range of members and trikes. The club has a strong family friendly culture and fellowship amongst its broad range of members of varying ages and backgrounds. The advantage of shared information expertise and experience benefits all members.
UTA seeks to foster fellowship and friendship amongst trikers throughout Australia. We encourage contact and association with other clubs with similar interests and culture. Participation through ride days and social events are a focal point of our activities and we encourage family and friends to join in our enjoyment. We strive to present a responsible image to the public and encourage safe riding at all times.
The idea of the club had been around for a while, with members of the triking community, wanting to have a place to share ideas and experiences of trikes and trike riding, with people who were having the same experiences. Johann Kastner, took the idea, and sent out a questionnaire to all trike owners on his data base, asking them what they would want in a club. After receiving all the comments back, a get together was arranged to discuss the idea further, including what to name the new group.
The United Trikers Australia (UTA) was founded in March 2000, when 6 people got together in Gosford NSW, at its 1st official meeting, and agreed to form the club as we know it, and adopting the name ‘United Trikers of Australia’. The club adopted the Rules of Incorporation as set down by the Department of Fair Trading in June 2000, and thus became known as United Trikers of Australia Inc. The 1st AGM for the new club was held at Norah Head NSW in March 2001. In June 2000, the 1st edition of the THREEDOM!!! Newsletter was published, and distributed to the clubs members.
Kids roll down the windows and yell, "Hey, what is that thing?" The owner of this likeable 3-wheeled vehicle just smiles back and says, "It's a trike."
