WHAT IS MAC RIDE?
                
Mac Ride is a unique seat for children that goes on your bike between you and your handlebars.

Mac Ride is about you taking your child with you to explore the streets, the paths and off-road terrain.

Mac Ride is strong, lightweight, ergonomic, easy to install, interactive and - perhaps most important of all - FUN!

THE NEED 

There is a particular age at which children begin to want to do everything that their parents do, and yet they are not always physically capable. For our kids it began somewhere around the age of 2, and has carried on for years afterward, depending on the activity.
As a mountain biker and general outdoor enthusiast, I wanted to share my love of off-road adventure with my kids. And so we took to the hills, camping, skiing and hiking. The kids loved it. But when it came to my true passion, mountain biking, I found the opportunities to share with my kids sorely lacking. 
Everyone has seen kids riding on bike seats. The concept is nothing new. There are a vast number of commuter seats for children on the market and many of them are excellent for getting around the streets. But I wanted a seat that was also suitable for the trails. Since I couldn't find what I was looking for, the solution was to build one.
