This chair-bike is also on rollers, so it can be moved easily around the house and used anytime – unlike that rowing machine/stationary bike that has been sitting somewhere for months collecting dust. Cycle on, sis!

“The RideSafer Delight Travel Vest by SafeRide4Kids car seat alternative is a total game changer… I haven’t been this excited about a material object since my husband gave me an engagement ring. This vest has given us freedom of mobility that we didn’t expect to have for many more years, and that’s an incredible feeling. If your lifestyle is similar to ours, then this is a must-have item.”
