Learning to ride a bike has been one of the topics on the Lilypad this year, so we are delighted to bring you this post from Argos about bikes for all the family this Christmas.
There’s no present quite like your child’s first bike. For one thing, it’s probably going to be the hardest thing you’ll ever have to wrap! Of course, the hours you’ll spend covered in sticky tape are worth it when you see their faces light up as they tear the paper off and discover the shiny new bike lurking underneath.
Is this the year you’ll finally get them their first pair of wheels? There’s a whole range of kids bikes at Argos, as well as a whole heap of accessories and bikes for grown ups too! Below we’ve put together some ideas for great Christmas gifts for children who’re discovering bikes for the first time, as well as adults who already love them…
Bikes for Kids
If you don’t think your young one’s quite ready for a pedal bike, a cute wooden pushbike will get them used to balancing – but they won’t have to worry about keeping their feet on pedals while they learn.
Meanwhile, older kids will love this Zinc Void bike; its specialist frame and front and rear brakes means it’s perfect for practicing tricks. Don’t forget matching pads to protect elbows and knees! And while we’re talking protection…
This Moshi Monsters helmet is a must for any Moshling fans; it’s bright and colourful, too, so you’ll never lose them in the park. If you want to keep your little one extra close, you can attach the tow bar to the back of your bike and create a mini-tandem!
Bikes for Grown ups
There’s plenty of storage in this elegant bike, but if you’re gifting for a commuter they’ll always have files and office kit to haul about with them – make sure it’s all safe and secure in this water-resistant back pack. When they’re not using it, they can scrunch it down into its stuff bag and pop it into their basket.
And all bikers, off-road or on-road, will appreciate a few pieces of safety gear. A set of lights, pumps and other clip-on accessories will keep their bike in good working order, while this understated helmet can be found here; it’s a stylish, but functional, piece of kit.
So no matter how old you are, a bike is not just for Christmas .... it is for all the family.
