Buying a kids bike is so last year…now you can subscribe instead!
Bike Club is revolutionising the world of two wheels as the UK’s first kids bike subscription service. They believe that children should have the opportunity to fall in love with an active healthy lifestyle through cycling and so provide a service to families like yours that offers lightweight premium quality kids bikes that can be exchanged as they grow from as little as £4.49 per month.
ALWAYS HAVE A BIKE THAT FITS THEM
Children grow quickly. On average, they’ll grow at 5cm per year from the age of three. But growth spurts are at varying and unpredictable rates throughout different parts of their childhood. Unfortunately, bikes don’t grow with them and there’s less room for growth within each size as you’d imagine. By the time your child is 12 and if you want to keep them on the correct size, they’ll be onto their eighth bike!
It’s important to keep children on the right size bike for a number of reasons but most importantly when they’re just starting out it’s vital to help them learn to ride and to enjoy it. A bike that’s too big or too small will have a completely different centre of gravity and be much harder to handle, leading to a lack of confidence.
Bike Club is parent founded and run and they know how difficult catering to a growing child can be. They offer flexibility in unlimited exchanges, whenever your child needs it.
NEVER THROW A BIKE AWAY
Children produce a lot of waste. First, there are nappies, then there are plastic toys. And that’s not to mention the food, or clothes they grow out of along the way. With a growing movement towards sustainable living, consumers are becoming more and more aware of the impact they have on the environment. Buying a bike and having it rusting away in the shed or throwing it into the dump just doesn’t sit well with many parents any longer.
By bringing the circular economy to family cycling, Bike Club are able to ensure bikes are loved and enjoyed by the next child, as opposed to being thrown away. Fewer bikes in a landfill, and more children cycling. They ensure bikes are regularly serviced and refurbished, which not only ensures they ride better but that their components are well looked after and last longer. Members can choose to receive a new bike or one of these pre-loved bikes for a reduced monthly rate.
SCRAP THE HASSLE
Growing legs leads to unused bicycles. If the landfill is no longer an option, time-stretched parents turn to re-selling. But selling a second-hand bicycle takes up time and causes a lot of hassle, which the majority of parents can’t be bothered with. Hello disused bicycle, sat rusting away in the garage. With Bike Club everything is handled for you with old bikes being collected at the point of new bikes being delivered. They even have a reCycle scheme open to certain brands. If you have an old bike lying around they’ll buy off you to refurbish it.
ENJOY THE QUALITY
A lightweight, high-quality kids bike is easier to handle and more enjoyable to ride. With over 100 components in a standard front wheel of a bicycle, cheap kids bikes aren’t designed, manufactured or built to a high quality. Cycling confidence is the top reason British adults chose not to cycle. Proving that a child’s first experiences of a bicycle are crucial. If the bike is heavy, incorrectly sized, or poorly designed, they won’t take to cycling. It will be difficult to handle, uncomfortable to ride and they’ll quickly palm cycling off as a sport that’s unenjoyable and inconvenient.
