autumn cycling – it’s a blast!

Cycling with your family in the autumn - keeping warm and dryAutumn is definitely here, but that’s no reason to lock the bikes up for the year. Here at Cycle Sprog we’re going to be taking every opportunity to keep the summer spirit alive by getting out on bike rides with our sons as frequently as possible.

It doesn’t need to be a long ride – a short blast out on the bikes between the rain clouds is enough to keep us all fit, and prevent us going stir crazy when the weather forces us back inside.

We will also continue to commute to school and nursery by bike, regardless of the weather, just making sure we’re all really well lit up once days become darker.

On that note, please do think carefully about keeping warm, dry and visible as the weather changes and the light levels drop.

It’s not easy finding winter cycling clothing designed specifically for children, so we’ve been working hard to find out what’s available this season – why not check out our articles on kids sized winter gloves, high visibility vests/waistcoats and winter cycling jackets.

Wrap up warm and enjoy the ride!

Remember if your child is in a trailer or bike seat they will get cold much quicker than you, as they’re not moving.  Thermals are great idea, and we’ve been known to use a balaclava under the helmet before now!
