Exciting times! Cycling is great for children - it's a great form of exercise as well as transport, it promotes the next level of independence, and we've seen so many time that it builds confidence that benefits the child in other areas of his or her life too.
The great thing is that today there are so many choices available - we don't have to put our children on those heavy 'toy' bikes that we had to cope with when we were young! Your child's first bike is their first (and very memorable) experience of cycling - if it's a good experience, it's more likely that cycling will become something they enjoy throughout life.
If your child is not yet pedalling, here is some information on balance bikes, which is the best way to prepare your child for pedalling.
Once your child is pedalling, there are a few points to remember when choosing a bike for your child.
