Summer is generally an easier time than usual when it comes to entertaining children. There are parks, zoos, playgrounds and a million other places perfect for warm sunny weather. Still, getting the kids from place to place (and packing all their gear) can be a bit trickier. Enter: the Thule Ridealong Bike Seat. Not only is this bike seat adjustable, easy to remove, and comfortable, but real moms and dads swear by it.

If you’re looking for a way to get more out and get your kids excited to get from place to place quickly, here are a few things that make the Ridealong seat something parents can’t get enough of.

It has tons of security features.

Of course, the most important part of a bicycle seat is that it will be secure. Not only does this seat have a built-in reflector and safety light attachment point for increased visibility, it also has an adjustable, padded three-point harness to keep your little one safe. small at any age.


Getting on and off the bike is easy.

Many reviewers mention the fact that the bike saddle is easy to put on and take off as a major plus. As one person writes, “Best child rear bike seat on the market, in my opinion. Easy on/off for me, comfy for grandkids, solidly built; what’s the matter? What else? Expensive but worth it.”

It is comfortable and adjustable.

Another aspect that makes this bike seat interesting, according to reviewers, is that it’s both comfortable and adjustable, from the seat itself to the straps.

One customer wrote: “Before buying this seat, we looked [YouTube] and do research. We decided to opt for this model rather than the old one. You can adjust the angle of the seat, the straps are soft and more comfortable for a child. It is easier to adjust the straps compared to the old model. The rear part of the seat supports the neck for a long time (unless your child is very tall). The seat is very easy to install. It took my husband a while to get used to the extra weight on his back. Very satisfied with this purchase. I hope it will last a long time so that other children can enjoy it.


It grows with the child.

As one customer writes, “I’ve owned it for about 2+ years. My 4 year old still meets the height and weight limits, even though he’s selling his own bike now, so we don’t use it I’m able to easily remove it from my bike with the quick release and store it away when not in use.It’s worn it well over the years and is so sturdy and comfortable for both of us. Trips across town to the park, trips to the softball fields to watch Dad play, or just walking around the neighborhood on a night when he’s not ready for bed but too tired to play. Would definitely recommend.

Another customer wrote: “We loved using this seat with our growing toddler. It is highly adjustable and the orange seat is very visible. He feels very secure/comfortable in the seat and loves riding around town It fits my (wife, 5’6″ mountain bike, road bike (nasty old 10 speed) and commuter bike. It also fits my husband’s (6’4”) road bike. looks like it could fit almost any bike.”

It’s true: Adjustable *and* easy enough to switch from one type of bike to another.

It costs less than a bicycle trailer.

Bike trailers are a popular option for those with children, and Thule also manufactures bike trailers. But this bike seat is a fraction of the price, making it a great option if you’re on a budget.

A customer writes: “It’s a very good product, you can say everything about it, it was carefully designed. The bars flex just enough to provide a comfortable ride. My son likes it very much and will hit me on the back to encourage me to ride faster. This changes the balance of your bike and it’s a little awkward to pick up a child and stall your bike at the same time. A trailer would probably be a bit more comfortable, but it’s less than half the cost. I anticipate this product will make a great gift in a few years from completion.
