Kids at home: keep them busy, and healthy!
Isolation, social distancing and homeschooling are only some of the things that weren’t so common to us not long ago, but are currently part of our daily routine. Kids’ lives have been impacted greatly by the coronavirus crisis, and parents are busily searching for activities that help kids stay busy, active and healthy.
It’s the perfect time for kids to learn to ride a bike, master a mountain bike with gears or learn cool scooter tricks to impress their friends when social distancing ends.
New bike, New Life
Riding a new type of bike or upgrading to a more serious ride will be a completely different experience for your kid. The skills required to ride a BMX differ greatly to a mountain bike or a road bike.
Kids BMX Bike
A BMX is the perfect choice to turn a normal bike ride into an exhilarating blast of fun! BMX bikes have durable, compact Hi-Ten steel frames and smaller tyres, which makes them great for kids. Kids love learning tricks on a BMX bike and practising them a hundred times. They’re also great for riding through puddles or jumping off dirt ramps that you can build yourself in the garden or the driveway.

Kids Mountain Bikes
Mountain bikes are versatile and a great option for your kids to upgrade to from smaller bikes. They have lightweight alloy frames, multiple gears for easier riding on different gradients, reliable v-brakes or disc brakes, fatter tyres and suspension to handle all terrains. Best of all? They’re easy to ride for short and long distances and they’re long-lasting.

Upgrading The First Bike
As beginner riders grow their confidence, they can improve their riding skills and further their enjoyment by upgrading from the bike they learnt to ride on. Offer them a bike that’s faster and bigger, but still easy to ride and handle. The best kids entry-level bikes are similar to mountain bikes but don’t have the suspension, the gears or the chunky tyres of a mountain bike. These are great value for money.

Learn To Ride A Bike
Isolation and holidays at home could just be the perfect time to learn to ride a bike. A balance bike is a great introduction to getting on two wheels for kids up to 2 years old. They come with 12" wheels and have no pedals, so kids can develop their balance without the worry of pedalling. The next level up is a 12" wheel bike with pedals and training wheels. You can add a guidance bar, to give your child that extra bit of help.
