Of course, we love to hear from our riders’ to hear about their experiences with the Ridekick power trailer and the ways it helps their rides. In this rider’s story, he is excited to begin cycling after his heart attack recovery.
“I finally got everything put together and took my Ridekick trailer out for it’s maiden voyage. As I drove back to my house after riding, I must tell you that I was feeling a little emotional and teary-eyed.
It exceeds my expectations. My first ride had to be short that first evening, but what a ride! It’s attached to a Greenspeed Magnum, and is as simple to connect as advertised. I am a 380 lb rider and had a heart attack three years ago.
For years, I’ve been unable to fully enjoy riding the lengths of the wonderful trails here in Virginia due to the inability I have 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 trailer.
Getting a Workout
There was no need to stop and get off to walk my bike, and I was able to pedal through all the hills on our local 10 mile paved rails to trails ride. Riding with a power-assist doesn’t take away the workout I’m looking for. It simply makes it possible for me to enjoy the entire ride. I was on the home stretch, and had an issue with my bike. Yes, I know, Gremlins seem to be fighting me at every step. Though I had bent two rings in the front chain-ring assembly, the Ridekick power propelled me back safely (and quickly, I might add!)
Worth the Wait
I love it. It was worth the wait. As a fellow who has been large since before Kindergarten, this enables me to get out and ride trails and travel like I haven’t been able too. It certainly will be essential in substantially raising my physical activity level. That is why it was so exciting to hear about Ridekick, dream about owning a power trailer, and then finally get to use one.
Thank you, again, for such good service and for working with me to ensure my happiness.”
Congratulations, Brad! We tip our hats (helmets) to you for getting back into cycling after heart attack recovery!
