If you’re planning on doing a lot of off road cycling with your child then it’s well worth thinking about buying a mountain bike.
There’s a bit more to think about when you’re buying a mountain bike over a regular hybrid kids bike. You need to make decisions about types of suspension, tyres and brakes, plus the bikes themselves then to be more expensive.
We’ve got lots of different articles to help you find that perfect bike so you can get out and enjoy the trails!
