Christmas is now only 23 sleeps away! What a great gift a first bicycle makes and what a great way to introduce your child to cycling, by getting them started on a balance bike... here are a few ideas for the littlest ones in the family:
For a great value- for- money, first bicycle, the 12inch Vitus Smoothy BalanceBike
is suitable for 2-3 year olds with an inside leg measurement of around 33-44cm and has good reviews, currently £89.99 at Wiggle
The seat has been designed with a padded scoop saddle to ensure your child is sat in the correct position and the seat post and handlebars are adjustable for as your child grows.
What I like best about the Vitus:
Although the FROG brand is more pricey, it has a very good reputation and has a higher re-sale value...
The 14 inch FROG Tadpole Plus Kids Balance Bike
is for kids around the age of 3-4 years with an average inside leg measurement of around 38cm, it weighs 4.18kg and is available for £200 at Leisure Lakes Bikes
What I like best about the Frog:
The Commencal Ramones 12 Push Bike 2021
I have to say, this little balance bike is looking good! it weights 4.5kg and is suitable for kids with an inside leg measurement of between 41-46cm, selling for £199 at Chain Reaction Cycles

Not only are we having some fantastic sunny, dry Autumn days- according to ‘project Britain’ the driest months in England are between October and January - HOORAY - Yes please.. but also… the Black Friday deals are on EVERYWHERE this week and with Christmas around the corner, it's a great time of year to get that new bike you've been dreaming of or upgrade your cycling gear to help get you motivated to get back on the saddle and what a fantastic gift that 1st bicycle makes for the 'little-uns' in your life...
Over the next couple of days I will be on the lookout for some great finds and be sharing ideas with you, I hope you find it useful!
