Follow along to read about our highs, our lows, and our ultimate dreams for Mac Ride triumph!
1. The Children Arrive
The Mac Ride Journey starts in 2007 when our daughter is born, then it's double trouble when our son arrives in 2011
2. The Adventure Challenge
We dream of keeping up our active lifestyle, camping on weekends and leaving the car at home day-to-day. It's not always easy, and we start to mull over product ideas that would help us.
3. Glen Dreams Up Mac Ride
Glen takes the best of what he's seen from other seats, ads some magic sauce, and develops the concept of Mac Ride.
4. Team Roberts Moves to Canada
Ok, so the seat isn't here yet, but the flag tells all. We've left the beloved Scotland (for now) and base ourselves in Ashley's home town, Vancouver, BC.
5. Ride More Innovations Ltd is Born
It's official. We're in business. Oh right, we still need to make our product!

We have the prototypes made and tested with early adopters around the world. Excitement for the concept builds!

We don't hit our first target. We're bummed.
