I recently babysat a friends youngest daughter, “N,” all day, while she and her husband took their oldest daugher, “A,” to Six Flags. My kids love playing with both girls, so it is never a problem to keep them. The kids played outdoors for quite a while and had a great time. They played in the sand and water cart… in the jeep… and played ball…
Soon enough, though, they got bored. Z wanted to go for a bike ride. We have a double bike trailer that we use to take our two bike riding. However, the trailer is built for two, and I had three under my care.
Fortunately, I had recently received received the WeeRide Kangaroo Child Bike Seat for review.
Normally, I leave ALL things technical for Brian to handle. But, once Z started saying “bike ride” the other two started clamoring. They wanted to go, too.
So, I thought, how hard can this be? really?
I got out my bike and affixed the mounting bar with little difficulty. The only tools required were the two wrenches that were included in the box.
And attached the Child Bike Seat. The Child Bike Seat position can be adjusted to allow for more/less leg room for the child.
I put my two in the bike trailer, and put “N” in the bike seat.
And away we went and the kids had a blast!
Judging by the squeal of delight from “N,” she loved the fact that she could see where we were going. I loved the fact that, although not surrounded by the frame and mesh of a bike trailer, I still felt like “N” was protected because of the positioning of the seat and the adjustable three-point security harness. I’ve never been a fan of the child bike seats that place the child behind the rider, because you can’t see the child and cannot protect them should a bike accident occur. With the WeeRide, I didn’t have to worry about “N” dangling her feet into the tire or slipping out of the seat, because she was right between my arms.
After “N” went home, “Z” and “S” insisted on taking turns riding up front with Mommy. They both absolutely loved the WeeRide.
I would certainly recommend the WeeRide for any parent who wishes to instill an early love of bike riding in their child.
The WeeRide retails for $89.99,
