Golfers have combined the activities of bicycling and golfing for years, usually riding bikes to the course to then walk or ride golf carts during play. In fact, golf professionals Nick Faldo and recently deceased Arnold Palmer were well known bike enthusiasts that rode daily toting their golf clubs carried in bags while riding to the course.
What if you combined the two, biking and golfing ON the course? Golfers would be able to better scan the landscape of the modern golf course, observing the endless cart path lining each hole, or the “proliferation of path.” There are some bicycle companies inventing specific accessory products for this market however the average golfer’s age would likely prohibit long pedaling on the course, especially in the heat. The Lopifit bike is equipped with a Samsung motor, propelled by a treadmill. The electric assist gives the Lopifit an advantage to bicycles for long rounds on the course!
Of course the Lopifit would have to be approved by the particular golf course to be played and abide to all appropriate golf cart path rules and regulations. There are several great golfing bike accessories and golf bag holders available, however Lopifit is researching options to manufacture some accessories, trailers and other gear to encourage golf and other activities via Lopfiit. Stay tuned for details.
In the meantime, we have found some products that should work with Lopifit bikes and worth consideration based on your preference. It’s a growing trend, surely to have many more options added to the marketplace soon.
First, you’ll need a golf bag and holder. You’ll want to use a small, lightweight golf bag for the weight – many are available less than $100. The racks, trailers and other type golf bag holders come in a variety of options. Given the shape of the Lopifit bike, it’s a special design and may have some special mounting required as there is no seat, etc…
- Rear Trailer – to mount to either carry case (on luggage case) over Lopifit rear tire or mount directly to rear tire as most child trailers are mounted.
- Front Wheel Mount Carrier – on the handlebars, seems very logical for the Lopifit design.
