Josh Carlson is a Rad Dad with His Toddler MTB Saddle

Josh Carlson switched up his daughter’s morning commute to school by going biking. To clarify, Carlson biked—his daughter Remi rode shotgun. Remi is able to tag along thanks to a shotgun seat, which is a mini kids saddle that can be mounted right to the bike frame.

I have a similar set up using the Mac Ride seat (www.mac-ride.com).  It doesn’t clamp to the frame at all - it spans the gap between the head tube and the seat post - works with my dropper, and my 2yo loves it.  He wouldn’t let me leave last Saturday on my bike ride without taking him with me.

That’s success in my book.

POV: Eric Porter Goes Heli-Biking at Whisper Ridge

A few weeks ago, we were lucky enough to go check out the digs at Utah’s Whisper Ridge and their brand-new heli-bike operation. It’s the first of its kind in the lower 48, and offers access to a 70,000-acre private backcountry playground. Pro riders and Utah locals Eric Porter and Cody Kelley joined the fun, and spent the day shredding the trail to pieces. Check out Porter’s POV from the day.
