So as we speed towards Christmas, with just 14 more shopping days to go, The Family Bike Show Team have taken a peek at some of the best deals out there.
Whether you are buying a first bike for your young one or looking for the right upgrade to fit your growing child’s cycling skills there are many options to choose from. Getting it right will encourage your child to cycle more and confidently, so it is well worth taking the time to make sure you choose the right bike and fit.
We are lucky to have a fab choice of light weight kids bikes, which offer great balance, movement and control for our young ones. The best advice that families are offered from the brands is don’t choose a bike that is too large, or uncomfortable it will scare your child away from cycling and make his or her confidence disappear. Take advice on the correct size, and design. There is no better place to get the best advice than your local Independent Family Bike Shop. They can normally offer a number of brands and talk you through the best options for your child.
