    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!
    6. The Mac Ride Model
    The first model is made. The feedback is wonderful. We're pumped!
    7. Ten Precious Prototypes 
    We have the prototypes made and tested with early adopters around the world. Excitement for the concept builds!

    8. Kickstarter Blues
    We don't hit our first target. We're bummed.

    9. Kickstarter Success
    If at first... The target is exceeded. We have a healthy pre-order list and funds with which to get cracking!
    10. Race Face
    An opportunity comes up for Glen to be a Design Engineer with Race Face Performance. He can't say no. He has a blast working (and riding) with the Race Face team.
