Inspiration

Family cycling inspiration

The reason that we first set up Cycle Sprog was to help other parents to start cycling with their young children.  We didn’t have any role models, and found it very difficult knowing how, where, when and what to do!

Over the years we’ve met loads of other cycling families, and we never fail to be inspired by what other Cycle Sprogs are up to.

We really hope that these articles will make you want to leap on your bikes and start pedalling – who knows where you’ll end up?

How to start cycling with your kids

Fuel prices have reached record levels, and they're unlikely to drop any time soon.  Swapping to cycling for shorter local journeys is often quoted as being a quick way to save money.

But how do you do this if you've got a family????

Don't panic - Cycle Sprog is here to help!

Here's a selection of articles to get you started - and don't forget to sign up for our FREE guide to cycling to school
