Cycle Sprog reviews

Here at Cycle Sprog we love to ride and review kids bikes and other related cycling equipment.  Some we’ve bought ourselves, others have been leant to us by family cycling brands.

We have a great panel of Cycle Sprogs and their parents who test out the kids and give their honest feedback about what it’s really like to use –  not on a quick spin around the park, but actually in proper use.

We hope you find our reviews useful in helping you to decide whether to buy a product or not.
