Ever since Chris got me a bike for my birthday I have been eyeing a WeeRide Co-Pilot for B. B has a bike of his own but he won’t ride it very far or for very long which means bike rides together aren’t really an option.
My only hesitation about the purchase was the price. On Amazon the WeeRide goes for about $90 and that’s certainly a hefty investment for something that I wasn’t sure was going to be a good fit for us. Although the reviews on the WeeRide were mostly good, the real reviewer was B and we had no way of testing it out before purchasing it.
Luckily I came across a listing on ebay for a gently used WeeRide for half of the cost! I was sold!
B and I have used it every day since we brought it home. Granted that was only 3 days in total, but I think I can safely say that this was the best purchase I have made in a while! We have been having a BLAST together. I love spending any type of time with B but there is just something different about getting outside and being active together.
The great part about the WeeRide is that we are literally connected together. Where I go he goes. That closeness allows me to hear his giggles when we go over bumps and when we go down hills. We get to talk about things that may not have otherwise come up….like this gem from B.
B: “The earth is beautiful, Momma. And we get to live here.”
Wise words from a six year old if I do say so myself!
The WeeRide also allows B to take breaks when he needs to as he knows that I can keep both of us going. But when he is pedaling it makes us feel like we are going super fast! B has also enjoyed the comments and looks we get from people as we pedal by.
The only downfall about the WeeRide is that I will miss B even more on the weeks that he goes to his Dad’s. Our bike rides have been THAT fun, no joke! I am already looking forward to our bike rides when he comes home next week!
