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!
