Ridekick trailer turns your bike into an eBike

Ridekick Trailer Power Bike Electric

Heading to the grocery store? Would you like a little extra boost up the hill on the way home?

The Ridekick gives you a top speed of 19mph and can ride a maximum of 12 miles. It has a throttle that gives you control of the speed.

At $699 (£454) the Ridekick isn’t cheap but it is far cheaper than buying an electric bike.

      I’d like to for once be given one of those brown paper bags for my shopping!

    Nice post, and I might just be trying one of these out myself. The company contacted me and I think I’m going to give it a try as they seem very cool. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

    Is it just me or does that sound weirdly dangerous. Rear wheel drive, flexible chasis. I could be missing something but it sounds like it would be as fun as reversing an articulated truck.
