Can you remember your first bike? The excitement! Feeling so grown up. The freedom! I loved my bike and every thing that came with it. Sure, it may have been a hand me down from my big sister but I didn’t care – it was mine! I relished riding it, ringing the bell and the responsibility of carrying items in my wire basket attached to the handle bars.
Owning a first bike is still a big a deal for kids today. If you have a bike-mad kid, here’s 11 bike accessories for kids that will have them cycling around in style.
Safety first! I’m a big fan of the funky and stylish range of helmets from Kiddimoto. I bought this Red Tyre design for Mr TT and he loves it.
