A bike is for life – not just for Christmas…

A gift from Blazing Saddles

We are giving away £20 gift vouchers to be redeemed in store towards the purchase of any children’s pedal cycle. Just ask any member of staff for yours. Vouchers are valid until the end of December 2018.

Start their journey right

Getting a bike for Christmas is often the highlight of a youngster’s childhood. Once the wrapping paper is off it’s just the beginning of a wonderful life-long habit, helping your child build confidence, improve fitness, improve concentration and provide lots of fun along the way.

Get the best fit

Here are some of the children’s bikes we have in stock – from balance bikes and first pedal bikes right up to small frame first adult bikes for teenagers. Children’s bikes are measured in wheel sizes, and there are general guidelines as to which size your child will need. If you’re not sure which size is right, we encourage everyone to try a bike in the shop to get the best fit, and we’re always happy to give advice.
