Learning to ride a bike is a childhood rite of passage and an important milestone. We all remember that terrifying moment when Mum or Dad stopped holding on and sent us flying down the street, peddling with all our might as we did our best to stay upright. It was exhilarating; the kind of memory that lasts a lifetime. At Gigi Brooks, we embrace any opportunity to help you make these memorable moments with your own kids. Our exciting collection of children's bikes is an example of us doing just that.
Today's edition of Midweek Playdate is dedicated to the important task of getting your child up and about on their bike. Cycling is great physical activity for children. Once they get the hang of it, they won't even realise how much exercise they're getting. If you're unsure where to start in terms of teaching this skill, we unearthed some fantastic advice on Bike Radar and a great video tutorial from the team at Netmums. While many decide to skip stabilisers all together these days, we still carry bikes that feature this handy add-on, meaning you can decide how best to support your child as they learn.
When you're a kid, having a cool bike is pretty much as good as it gets, and the parent who buys their child one from our range is going to be pretty popular for a very long time. There are several things that set them apart. Although made for kids, they don't look childish. Every one of our bikes could easily be a sized down adult version. Better still, these bikes are built to meet the needs of the rider; the specially designed saddles, handlebars and grips ensure a perfect fit, while an adjustable frame will accommodate them even after the most enthusiastic of growth spurts. These bikes really are a perfect pairing of practicality and pure coolness.
Soon your kids will be enjoying that feeling of the wind in their face as they speed down the street, the weightlessness that comes from even the smallest jump and the look of envy from all their friends as they whizz past on one of the coolest bikes around.
