The Gift of Freedom
Starting out on Two WheelsIt’s a two-way thing.
Life is all about stages. Milestones build upon one another and prepare us for the future. Second to walking, learning to ride a bike is the first time your child is truly ‘on their own.’ It’s an act of bravery and commitment. It takes true courage to fall, get up and try again.
Cycling promotes problem-solving, exploration and nurtures independence.
As a parent, your child learning to ride their first toddler bike is a shared experience that will teach you about them and about yourself. It’s an opportunity to strengthen the bond of trust and understanding. A family activity that can help build the lifelong habit of fitness. A Balance Bike is the perfect way to get them started on this journey.
You’re on your own kid!
A Taste of IndependenceBrilliant at breakfast (and at school).
Let’s face it, most kids aren’t exactly crazy about the morning trip to school. As Oscar Wilde put it ‘Only dull people are brilliant at breakfast’.
So how about trading the humdrum car ride for an invigorating bicycle trip to school? Even if your kids hate school it’s an opportunity to bond with them and build memories along the way. In a world where kids spend so much time on screen, it’s also a great way to sneak in some well-needed exercise and connect your child with the environment.
A cycle trip to school will boost mood and prime your kids for the day ahead, and there’s nothing better than a Bobbin Kid’s Bike to do it on.
You never forget your first bike
Picking PersonalityIndependence in a box.
Choosing the colour of their bike is a chance for a child to express their personality. Our fire engine red kids' bikes might echo the fiery spirit of a confident child, bold and brimming with energy. Whilst Duck Egg Blue could whisper of a soulful, introspective nature. Green children’s bikes might signal a heart in tune with nature. Black could hint at a mature soul, finding beauty in simplicity and practicality.
Let your child paint a picture of their unique identity. Cherish and encourage these expressive moments, as they're heartwarming revelations of your child's blossoming individuality.
Racing into the World
Racing into the WorldCycle of Mischief
Our world has changed dramatically. If you grew up in the seventies or eighties, you’d have experienced a pretty unconstrained childhood, with kids building ramps out of old doors and car tyres in an attempt to impersonate the legendary Evel Knievel (all without kids bike helmets!) Bicycles were the centre of a child’s social life; a means of visiting friends and getting up to collective mischief.
Sadly we now live in more uncertain times, but with the right precautions, there’s no reason why today’s kids shouldn’t experience some of the freedom of the past.
Our Hybrid Kids Bike, the Hornet, embodies this spirit of freedom and is built to inspire young riders to chart their own path as they race towards adulthood.
