Admit it, from time to time you wish you had a little extra help on that last hill before your destination, especially after that long commute home from work or when hauling a load from the grocery store. Although some may look at you funny riding on that clunky motorized bike, (especially in cycling meccas like Boulder) they can come in handy and are better for the environment than driving a car.
Now, there is an alternative that doesn’t require you buy a new bike – the Ridekick. It’s an innovative electric powered bike trailer designed to help your bike reach up to 19 miles per hour for a distance of 8 to 12 miles per charge. Very simply, the Ridekick is a motorized trailer that pushes your bike. The trailer also comes with extra cargo space for things like a briefcase and groceries, so it serves as more than just a receptacle for the motor and battery.
The Ridekick can be purchased via the company website for US $699.
