Introducing..... The Weeride!

And so beginneth my new healthy lifestyle! Now that Spring has well and truly sprung, my beloved Pashley Princess has come out of hibernation and we have finally chosen and purchased a bike seat for Daisy.

I opted for the Weeride Kangaroo Deluxe, a front mounted seat, and I knew I had made the right decision from the word go.

Firstly, being front mounted, I loved the idea that I would be able to see Daisy at all times, it just felt so much safer than having her behind me. What I didn't even think about was that being so close to each other also means we can chat whilst we're cycling which is just fabulous! Daisy gets a brilliant view (instead of staring at my back!) and the seat is so comfy that on the way home from our ride this morning she even dozed off!

I am informed that it was super easy to fix (er.... no I didn't do it myself!!!) It feels so secure, and doesn't make the bike wobbly at all. (I was a bit worried about weight distribution with a rear bike seat as I have heard that they are hard to get used to). I have had to change my cycling style a bit (having the seat in front means I need to pedal as if I'm a bit bow legged) but it's not uncomfortable in the slightest.

The customer service I received from Weeride/SeatsforKids was just fabulous. I spoke to a real person from the word go, and had hundreds of daft questions answered (mainly to do with whether or not this type of seat would work on my particular bike). All questions were dealt with straight away and when I placed my order, I received the seat by 24hr courier which was brilliant as we all know I get a teeny tiny bit impatient when I'm excited about something arriving in the post (normally Emma Bridgewater).

I have had so many people ask me about the seat in the two rides out we've had so far; it really is a show stopper! Daisy absolutely loves it - I just wish I had bought one sooner! (although this particular model is for children up to the age of 5/18kgs so we will still get plenty of use out of it).

If you're interested in a Weeride for yourself, check out their website here. They are also on Twitter and Facebook. I can't recommend them highly enough.
