RIDEKICK Electric Trailer


ridekick. trailer

Yes you did read the title correctly……. This is a propelled Electric Trailer. It pushes your bike. Making any bike an e-bike any time you hook the RIDEKICK trailer to it.

Update ! I just recieved this email Saturday 7/09/2011.

“The Ridekick™ power trailer is now available to purchase online through Don’t get left behind. Make your purchase soon – there are a limited number of Ridekick power trailers on hand. These first units will be sold to customers on a first-come, first-served basis. Go to this page on our website ( and purchase your unit today. In a few short days this page will go public, so don’t delay.”

RIDEKICK  ——–  What a great idea. This fits so well with so many things I’m doing at the moment. It’s a perfect solution for those of us who want to keep their regular bike available as a regular bike but add the extra capacity and conveyance of having an e-bike for commuting to work or for trips to the grocery/hardware store. This should motivate you to ride your bike even more often and for those of us who don’t drive it adds so many options.
It’s not often I see something that gets me excited enough to write about it & have it posted on my blog with-in the hour. Talk about having your cake and eating it too. Check out the following links:"bicycle trailer","green transportation", "alternative transportation",Bicycle
