Best Christmas presents for cycling kids- the Cycle Sprog gift guide
With Christmas nearly upon us, we know that Santa and his helpers will soon be starting to choose all the bikes and cycling related presents that some very good (and lucky) children will be getting this year.
To help them out, we've selected some of our favourite cycling themed Christmas presents for children that we know any young Cycle Sprog would love to find in their stocking or under the tree come Christmas morning.
Christmas presents for cycling kids
Playmobil cycling themed toys
Playmobil have a brilliant range of cycling themed toys which are perfect for imaginative play.
Suitable for ages 4 and over, but check each kit as age recommendations do vary.
If Santa is being really generous and bringing a bike this year, then help him choose one that’s going to be fun and safe to ride.
The Kidvelo Rookie bikes are great for children who haven’t yet learnt to pedal.
They easily convert from balance bikes to pedal bikes (and back again), and are designed to make the learning process very easy.
Last day for ordering - 20th December
The B’Twin range at Decathlon are a great choice if you’re looking for a budget bike. They’re “proper” bikes, rather than “toy” bikes which we always warn parents to stay away from.
Each bike comes in several versions - the 100 is their entry level bike, and they go through to 900’s which are lighter weight and have better components, so there’s something for all budgets and ages.
Cycling picture books
For younger children who are just starting out on their cycling and reading journeys there are some great picture based books to choose from:
Lego bicycle themed toys
Lego don’t have quite so much choice of cycling themed kits as Playmobil, but they are slowly improving.
Kids cycling fiction
Brilliant bedtime stories for older readers!
Winter cycling kit
A new bike for Christmas is all well and good, but if you are too cold to ride it can be SO miserable!
The Sylvian Families often travel around by bike and there’s plenty of lovely kits to choose from.
Usually suitable for ages 3 and over.
Recreate the pump track / bike park at home and master tricks using a finger bike.
Suitable for ages 6 and over.
Stories about adventure cycling
Exploring the world by bike is something many of us dream of doing. These books will help sow those thoughts from a very early age!
