Ridekick Reviews

In 2008, Ridekick founder Mark Wanger showed up to a sustainable energy discussion, sweaty after his bike commute to the meeting, and decided he needed to find a way to ride sweat-free. He liked his existing bike, but didn’t want to permanently attach an electric motor to it. So he considered options for finding a motor that could be added for commuting, and removed for recreational riding. Mark learned that the Tour de France riders were generating about 320 watts with their pedaling. A week later, he noticed that his hand drill had a 400-watt motor. Figuring that the numbers were close enough to be intriguing, he decided to see what would happen when he powered his bike with a hand drill motor. The Ridekick founders believed that more people would ride bikes as a means for transportation if they could travel farther, arrive faster, and avoid sweating. And if more bikes/trikes are used to take people from Point A to Point B, there would be fewer cars on the roads, and fewer pollutants going into the air.
