This year we’re not entirely sure what Black Friday is going to look like in terms of discounts on kids bikes. There’s been such a shortage of kids bikes for the majority of 2020 (since everyone bought them up during lockdown) that it’s unlikely that we’re going to see very many big reductions on children’s bikes.
In fact, if you’re looking for a bargain kids bike in time for Christmas, I’d actually recommend you scroll down this page now. If none of the offers take your fancy then go to our other page on the Cheapest Kids Bikes and buy one of the recommended bikes ASAP, as stock really is running low this year.
However, as we do hear about what Black Friday deals there will be on kids bikes for 2020 we’re adding them in here, but do be aware that once they’re gone, they’re gone!

Take a moment to GRAB YOUR FREE KIDS BIKE BUYING CHECKLIST which will help you record all the information you need to find the perfect bike for your child.
If you’ve not heard of The Bike Club yet, they’re taking the kids bike market by storm with their leasing business. You sign up for monthly membership and they send you a bike that fits your child NOW (so no need to buy a too big bike for them to “Grow into”. You then send it back when your child outgrows the bike, and upgrade to the next size (note there is a £20 collection fee if you do this before 18 months is up – after that it’s a free exchange).
You can order a brand new bike, or choose the cheaper option of a bike that’s already been used (but been thoroughly serviced) – this option is slightly cheaper, and even more environmentally friendly.
The Bike Club stock mainly Frog, Forme, Squish and Strider Bikes, with a smaller number of Cuda and Islabikes.
UPDATE: Tuesday 6th April 2021 - The Bike Club currently have a some of the new season Forme Bikes in stock, plus some Squish and Frog Bikes also available. They've added this link which takes you to bikes ready for dispatch if you need a bike quickly.

If you have an old kids bike you've been meaning to sell on, then The Bike Club also have a hassle free way to do this, called reCycle.
They will even send a courier with a box to pick it up! Get a valution of your old bike here.

Tredz Black Ticket Event – extra 10% off nearly new kids (and adult) bikes plus discounts on kids cycling clothing/helmets
Tredz have a small selection of nearly new kids bikes (previously used for instore demos) and they’re currently selling them off with an additional 10% discount. They also have some good deals on adult bikes if you need a new bike yourself.
Obviously, there’s not going to be many available, so you need to be quick!
Tredz have also reduced a lot of their kids cycling kit. Obviously this is all end of line stuff, so once it’s gone, it’s gone, but it’s well worth a look.
I spotted reductions on virtually everything you need for a family bike ride – shorts, cycling jerseys (short and long sleeved), gloves, sunglasses, tights, helmets and body armour, all from great brands. Enjoy having a browse and stocking up for next years fun!
Black Friday deals on bikes and kit at Chain Reaction Cycles
Chain Reaction Cycles have already started their annual Black Friday deals. They release new deals every Thursday in the run up to the big day. This year Week 1 of their Black Friday deals doesn’t have any specific kids kit included, but there are various XS adult options that might fit older kids and teenagers who are outgrowing the smaller kids sizes. Black Friday is a good time to stock up! A few things that caught my eye include:
dhb Women’s Merio Wool base layer – various colours with size 8 available
20% off KMF tickets
OK, I know this isn’t a Black Friday deal on a kids bike, but I thought I’d add this in, as we all deserve a treat at this time of year! Cycle Sprog HQ is lucky enough to be based in Kendal, on the edge of the beautiful Lake District and each year we get to take our Sprogs to the Kendal Mountain Festival. And each year I look at the programme and wish I had the time, energy and money to watch all the different film collections and listen to all the inspirational speakers.
Well, this year they’ve moved online, so you can watch it all from the comfort of your own home. Instead of having to cram it all into one weekend, the content is available through to the end of the year.
There’s a huge number of films – both feature length ones and collections of shorts to inspire you through this depressing time.
They’re giving Cycle Sprog readers a 20% discount code, so enter SPROGS20 at the checkout. You can pay by the film / session, or do what I’ve done and treat yourself to a pass that allows access to everything on demand through to the end of the year.
Black Mountain Bikes (who make the “growing bikes” which convert from a balance bike to a pedal bike, are sitting out Black Friday this year – you can read their reasoning why here.
No Black Friday Deals on Islabikes
Read here about why Islabikes don’t be doing Black Friday deals – this year or any year. However, there is possibly a way of getting a cheap Islabikes, if you’re prepared to wait a while.
20% off EVERYTHING at Proviz
Proviz make some great hi-viz products for cyclists, so you can be highly visible when riding in the traffic during the winter months. Their Black Friday sale gives 20% off all products across this website, including kids cycling jackets, backpacks and helmets.
This means their REFLECT360 Kids’ Fleece-Lined Waterproof Jacket is reduced from £54.00 down to £43.99.
