The past few weeks haven’t been the most amazing biking weather here in Charlotte. After rain, more rain, and then an inch of ice, the trails are all but floating away. Luckily, we have a great neighborhood for biking and we’ve been able to squeeze in some laps here and there. While we were out and about, Big C had a chance to try out a new riding glove from WeeRiderz, a small family company based out of CA.
WeeRiderz was formed after founders Eric and Rachel Ortlieb saw a gaping hole in the market when it came to biking gloves. While palm coated gloves were available at every bike store and sporting goods in town, their search for a toddler glove came up empty. The Ortliebs decided to take matters into their own hands, and WeeRiderz was born!
While these gloves may look like simply a pint-sized version of their adult counterparts, a closer inspection will reveal many features designed specifically with little rippers in mind. Wide openings make it easy to get hands in, and the loops at the end of the fingers make for easy off as well. The soft material at the thumbs can catch runny noses without chapping the skin.
The quality looks good as well – durable fabric all around, with comfort padding stitched onto the palm sides. With 4 cute pattern options to choose from, these gloves would be the perfect gift for your beginning biker (or scooter-er, skater, or even to use on the monkey bars!)
WeeRiderz was generous enough to offer up a free pair of gloves for one lucky Cragmama reader! To enter the giveaway, simply leave a comment below and fill out the Rafflecopter Widget. I would love to know how old your tykes are, and what they are riding these days – balance bikes, tricycle, training wheels, big kid bike, scooter, etc?
