Childrens bicycle

 

Great for kids because...

HEALTH - Fitness, strengh, spacial awareness - great for all round development and fun at the same time.

INDEPENDENCE - In an age of cosseted, chauffeured upbringing, a bike is a child's first taste of independence (and yours!)

TOGETHERNESS -  Cycling is a great activity for all the family, siblings and friends to do together.

ENVIROMENT - It's a great way to bring an eco-concious element to your childs world.

LIFE SKILLS - learning to maintain a bike and maybe even fix one is great experience for later life, allows children to feel self sufficient and teaches responsibility (without sacrificing a pet!).

Kids Bikes

A bike has no end of advantages for children, perhaps the biggest being their enjoyment of the 'simple joy of riding a bike' (partial JFK quote there!). We stock a variety of bike styles that suit the 'just walking' to the teenager and we'll make sure your child is correctly fitted to whichever style you (or they) decide!

Learning to ride a bike.

We sell both balance bikes and bikes with stabilisers, for children learning to ride. However, we cannot stress how much we recommend the former. Teaching your child to balance before they get distracted by pedals really helps them get along a lot faster. We accept that some children need the extra confidence boost of stabilisers and that’s fine too. Speak to one of our staff for advice and help getting your child started.

Next step (or pedal)

We have mountain, hybrid and road bikes, with a bigger choice the older they get. All bikes can go on pavement or on cycle paths, however if your little monster prefers diving into muddy fields on 2 wheels, then you might want to look at mountain bikes. If you have more of a little road runner, try a hybrid or road bike which are build for speed and are lighter, for longer distances.

A small note... Back pedal brakes are brilliant

Coaster brakes, as they are called, are unusual in the UK but very common on the continent. They are intuitive and quick acting. They are great for younger children who may not have the dexterity or strength to pull a brake lever. They also stop them pedalling backwards instead of forwards! Give them a go as they are gret for the early years.
