Customer testimonials help guide our responses to interested Ridekick fans. Ridekick riders often write us about their experiences. These stories are a basis of first-hand information that we can share (size of rider, terrain, battery range, etc). There’s nothing like a current Ridekick rider to help inform a potential rider!
A frequent question is, “Will the Ridekick power trailer boost 350 – 400 lbs of weight (rider, cycle, cargo)?” We’ve received several accounts from large riders or tandem riders. Here’s a recent story:
From Brad in Virginia:
“I finally got everything put together and took my Ridekick out for its maiden voyage. As I rode back to my house after riding, I must tell you that I was emotional and teary-eyed.
It exceeds my expectations. I didn’t have long to ride the first evening, but what a ride! It’s attached to a Greenspeed Magnum and it is as simple to connect as advertised. I weigh 380 lbs and had a heart attack three years ago. I’ve been unable to fully enjoy riding the lengths of the wonderful trails here in Virginia. This is due to my physical limitations, coupled with the difficulty recumbents have with hills. Although the hills on most of the trails are nothing for seasoned riders, for me they proved impossible. Not so with the Ridekick.
There was no stopping and getting off to walk my bike. I was able to pedal through all the hills on our local 10-mile paved rails to trails ride. I am looking forward to the workout, and the Ridekick trailer doesn’t take that away. It simply makes it possible for me to enjoy the entire ride.
As a large person, this enables me to get out and ride trails and travel like I haven’t been able to for years. It certainly will be essential in helping me raise my physical activity. That is why it was so exciting to hear about, then dream about, and finally do!”
Brad, we offer a toast to your accomplishment!
