â€‹What does it require to take your family from Hamilton Canada to Mexico and beyond? Strength, perseverance, resilienceâ€¦and the right tool for the job! The Wike Premium Double was one of the tools the pedal-powered family relied on to get them over 13 000 km!
On May 11, 2011, the Pedal Powered Family started out from Hamilton, Ontario. The intrepid adventurers included Reuben and Heidi and their two young children, Eden (age 4 when they left) and Harper (almost 2 when they left).

What’s up in Active Transportation
2013 03 11
Creating a more human streetscape in our urban fabric is a ongoing challenge for every community. At Wike our goal is to deliver the mechanical devices that people need to travel easily on foot or by bike. Our newest concept, the Stroller Bike is the horizon of a new frontier for us. The existing products in this field are tricycles that convert to strollers and there are many namely Taga, Zigo, and Trio. Look forward to more advancements from Wike in the field of active transportation.
