Look out for bikes featuring removable stabilisers to support your child as they learn. Fully enclosed chain guards make for extra safety, and dual suspension keeps the riding smooth and easy. As your child grows more confident, mountain bikes can bring a dash of adrenaline to cycling. High-grip wheels and lightweight steel frames take the toil out of tougher terrain.
BMX bikes are lower to the ground and will help tricksters practice their skills with a touch of style. Children's bike helmets are an essential whether they're bike riding or using scooters, skateboards or roller blades. So, strap them on and get ready to...roll.
