Kid In Tow: ‘Weehoo’ Bike Trailer Is Exhilarating Ride
“Dad, this is so fun, I feel like I’m dreaming!” — Those words came from William, my four-year-old son, shouted over the wind as we blazed down a bike path.
Read the story and experience the Weehoo® trailer bike for yourself.
William was piloting a pedal-equipped bike trailer called the Weehoo. Its name, an onamonapia of sorts, was literally belted out as we pedaled and coasted on a 10-mile ride.
The trailer — full name: Weehoo iGo Turbo — is like a tag-along bike attachment except the kid gets a chair. You buckle him or her in with a three-point harness, and then feet are strapped to pedals.
A kid can crank on the pedals and help the adult or sit back and enjoy the ride. William did both on our big maiden journey, an hour-long trip across town.
I connected the Weehoo to my mountain bike. It attaches to the seat post via a curved metal arm. A single wheel sits behind the Weehoo’s chair, and the child has handles to grip.
