Cheapest bikes for a 3 year old for under £100
OK - you've read the article, so you're not going to be surprised when we say that we don't recommend a really heavy, cheap steel hunk of a bike that your child is going to find hard to manoeuvre, which won't last long and may even, in extreme cases, be unsafe for them to ride, especially if they can't work the brakes.
I know that over £100 may seem like a lot to spend on a kids bike for a 3 year old, especially if you don't know whether they're going to enjoy cycling.
But please remember, if you buy a cartoon bike for under £100 you're possibly going to find that it's not enjoyed anywhere as much as the great, lightweight children's bikes featured above, as they've all got child sized components, good brakes, decent tyres and should allow your child to develop a love of cycling that will last a lifetime.

So, what are your options if your budget is less than £100 for a bike for your 3 or 4 year old?
RENTAL and SECOND HAND of course!
There is a roaring trade in good quality secondhand 14" wheel bikes, precisely because they are built to last.
You may have to hunt around a bit, but it's possible to get a decent bike for under £100.
Or you can lease for just over £10 per month, and swap the bike when your child outgrows it.
