Spring has Sprung! We are ready to ride... are you?!
If you, your kids and your bikes have been hibernating all winter, get your bikes ready to roll and visit your nearest Bicycle Centre store.
Some handy tips before you start your family ride...
Is your child's bike still the correct size?
It's amazing how quickly they grow, especially since last summer! Do their handlebars need raising or have they outgrown their bikes? We have a great range of kids bikes available in all Bicycle Centre stores. See more...
Are your bikes in a roadworthy condition and safe to ride?
It's always best to do a once over before going on any ride. Do the tyres need inflating, or the chain need lubricating? All Bicycle Centre stores have experienced mechanics on hand who offer bicycle maintenance service.
Build their confidence back up and have a practice ride before setting off.
They will soon be back to where they were last Summer but may need to get used to pedalling, braking and changing gears again before setting off.
Get used to being back in the saddle and pace yourselves
Check the weather and wear appropriate clothing.
Be prepared for weather changes. You may set out when the sun is shining, however as the bike ride goes on the weather may turn and become wet and cold.
Don't forget to pack snacks.
I'm hungry! Does that sound familiar? Be prepared with snacks and drinks, or small change to pick something up along the way.
The most important tip of all. Enjoy your ride.
