Welcome to Cycle Sprog

The home of family cycling and kids bikes!

Welcome to Cycle Sprog – the home of family cycling. Whether you’re a cycling novice or a passionate expert we are here to help you keep pedalling with practical advice and recommendations what ever age your child.

One of the joys of cycling with children is that they are always growing and able to go further and faster, so we have loads of advice to cover pregnancy through to the teenage years.

Happy cycling!

Autumn cycling

The days are starting to draw in, it’s getting a bit colder and the leaves are changing colour.

Autumn can be a wonderful time of the year to get out cycling with your child – from finding brightly coloured leaves, collecting conkers, seeing squirrels, racing cyclocross or riding muddy routes there’s usually a lot to keep them occupied, what ever their age.

Here’s our pick of article to help you get out on two wheels this time of year:

About Cycle Sprog

Cycle Sprog is a website all about cycling with kids, which husband and wife team Chris Jones and Karen Gee set up in 2012.

The idea for Cycle Sprog emerged out of frustration at the considerable time they were spending online trying to find cycling solutions to each time one of their two boys grew.

When we were moving from a trailer to a tag along and front seat combination we were moaning about how little information there was online for parents who want to cycle with their children.

We realized just how much time we’d spent over the years searching for honest advice and finding places to buy all the equipment, clothing and accessories so the idea of creating a family cycling website aimed specifically for parents was born.

It's just kept on growing, along with our boys!

I’ve been knocked off my bike – and I’m REALLY annoyed
