Dear supporters,

While this campaign has ended, our mission continues to replace car trips with healthy and fun bike trips. Thank you for being a passionate supporter of Ridekick.

Our campaign didn’t get enough visitors to meet our expectations, but those that visited showed a good pledge rate. We feel encouraged by the feedback we received and plan to refine our strategy for even better traction in our next campaign.

We’re excited to bring the Ridekick Child Trailer to the market and appreciate that you shared the vision with your pledge.

If you are here after the campaign is expired, please send us a note at info@Ridekick.com to let us know if you are interested in purchasing your very own Ridekick child trailer, or if you want to give one as a present, or just offer a “thumbs up” to our team here in Colorado.

Keep riding!

Ridekick powered Child Trailer

  A trailer for your bike that
  has an electric motor
  and makes pedaling easy.

Carry your kids and their cargo and don't sweat it.  

 

What it is

The child trailer that pushes you!

When kids grow, bicycling with them is hard ...

    • Kids weigh you down,
    • inclines are hard,
    • and headwinds take the fun out of the ride.

Choose a normal trailer, OR upgrade to the Ridekick  power trailer to make your rides as fun as you imagined.

   Attaches to any bike.      (No need to buy an electric bike!)   

Bicycling is good

 

Don't wait for the weekend to ride ...

  • Cycle the kids to school.

  • Take two kids to the park.

Experience

Our team has decades of experience designing and manufacturing products for high quality companies; our marketing expertise has keen focus on your needs and desires, and our post-sales product support has earned accolades from our customers. 

Track record of success

Our first product is the revolutionary Ridekick trailer for commuters and recreational riding. It's sold in bicycle stores across the USA and to customers in 8 countries.       www.Ridekick.com

The new Ridekick child trailer is built on this success and is now we're ready for you, our customers. When enough pre-orders are entered, the product launch will begin!

Why do we create Ridekick trailers?

Our mission is to enable more people to cycle instead of drive because it’s more fun, and healthier for people and the planet.

Over 100 million short car trips occur daily in the US.  Imagine millions of 4 mile trips taken by bike instead of driving!

  • Every bicycling mile saves a pound of CO2.
  • It’s more FUN to cycle through neighborhood streets rather than fight traffic in a car. 
  • Even with a power assist, your heart rate comfortably reaches 70 to 100.  Get healthier.

There are barriers to bicycling: hills are difficult, it's hard to carry the things we need, and we often don't have time for a shower.  Ridekick power assist gets you over the hurdles to a the fun of cycling. 

 

What does the funding enable?

Product design has been tested to engineering standards and performance is stellar. It’s been tested by focus groups and people at various locations from the hills of San Francisco to the great outdoors of Colorado.

"Wow, what a ride. Going up hills is amazing."

"Too fun! I think I am in love."

Next we’re ready to complete all the design details and part specifications, and validate suppliers and part specs.  Your pre-payments enable us to order parts in bulk and create the assembly line to inspect parts and assemble the product to our high standards.
