Kids bikes for Christmas

Posted on: 29/11/2018 at 5:54pm

Receiving your first bike is one of the most durable memories of childhood. It’s rare that adults don’t recall that first taste of freedom, the excitement of the shiny new bike under the tree soon fused with the trepidation of those first teetering moments in the saddle. This is why bikes make such great gifts, they teach us the important life lesson that the best things come with a little hard work attached. Fresh air, exercise and adventure lies beyond the initial challenges of balance and coordination, nervousness soon gives way to a new confidence and freedom and poignant memories are born.

You can learn to ride at any age but the earlier you start the sooner you get to enjoy the benefits. With modern balance bikes kids can be learning the skills of balance and steering from 3 upward with first pedal bikes from 3-4 years. As children grow, like shoes they’ll need bigger bikes that are a safe and comfortable fit for them. At Summit Cycles we can offer the best advice on size and fit for your tiny rider, ensuring the bike you receive is a good match for your child yet still allowing room for growth. Children of all ages come in all shapes, sizes and confidence levels and that’s why there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Many of our staff are parents too with experience of stewarding their own young riders on their path to progress so we are always happy to share our own experiences in an effort to ensure your young ones have the safest, most trouble free journey to riding confidence that they can.

We always stock a wide range of bikes with many more available on very short order times from suppliers. We work only with brands who offer superior quality products that we know will work and, if cared for correctly, will last well so that when it comes time for your child to move on to a bigger bike they will retain good resale value. With kids bikes from Frog (assembled in Wales), Trek and Specialized there is plenty to choose from. Balance bikes, first pedal bikes, hybrids, racing bikes and mountain bikes.

 

Thinking of giving a bike for Christmas?

You can reserve a bike with as little as 10% deposit (balance due on final collection). Our CYTECH qualified mechanics will fully assemble and safety check it and store it ready for collection prior to Christmas.

We also stock a wide range of accessories like locks, lights, clothing, gloves, helmets, packs, bicycle pumps and puncture repair kits which all make great gifts to get them properly kitted out. And if you’re really not sure what to buy, we have gift certificates that can be used for absolutely anything we sell, they can be any value and have no expiration date.
