Brian Baylis and Paul Patzkowsky have fessed up to have trikes, there's likely a few more. Check out the Tricycle Association group in England, http://www.tricycle-association.org.uk/ who state, "Although it may seem strange, the Tricycle Association is the only association of its kind in the World. We have twelve overseas members, but in general tricycling as a sport is confined to the UK."

Sounds like the "mad dogs and Englishmen" syndrome... ;^)
