kids' cycle clothes

Riding your bike in the winter is just as much fun as in summer – but only if you are WARM and DRY! In this post you can win a pair of kids Over Trousers from Polaris!

It’s common sense really! The better your experience of cycling the more you’ll want to do it, that applies to kids and adults!

kids cycle clothing and accessories
The range of kids cycle clothing we stock at The Little Bike Company is designed for children serious about cycling and training whatever the weather conditions, hot and sunny or freezing cold.  Young competitive cyclists and triathletes know exactly what they need to ensure they’re warm and dry through the winter, and comfortably cool through the summer!

However, we also believe our range will be perfect for families who are serious about having fun on bikes, on family bike rides or just cycling to school.  Get the right kit, designed especially for cycling and you will notice the difference in your kids attitude to getting on their bikes.

You are sure to hear protestations from your kids the next time you suggest a quick ride to ‘blow away the cobwebs’ if the last ride was miserable! Ensure you have not only a warm, water proof jacket, but also the two essentials we recommend for keeping kids happy when cycling, Gloves and Over Trousers!

Kids Cycling Gloves

Ditch the woollen gloves which will get damp and let the wind through and invest in a pair of these fantastic Mini Hoolies from Polaris, a best seller of ours and for good reason – these are serious kids cycling gloves!  Designed especially for cycling they keep your kids hands super warm, dry and comfortable.  They’re also highly reflective to help your child be seen!

These children’s gloves are designed with cold weather in mind as they have a smooth surface windproof laminate. For additional comfort there is a gel pad for the palm. Each finger has a silicon print grip and the thumb has a fleece nose wipe. In three colours. The fluorescent yellow and orange colours provide extra safety when out at dusk/night. – Mini Hoolies

Kids Cycling Trousers

A pair of Polaris Prism Over Trousers rolled up in your back pack will save the day when suddenly the heavens open! Knees can get extremely cold and raw when cycling in winter.  We’d recommend keeping them on for extra warmth and protection even if it’s not raining – they’ll protect kids from splashes too, so you wont have to tell them off for doing what comes naturally to all kids and riding through the puddles at high speed!

These overtrousers from Polaris are perfect in protecting & keeping clothing dry when it’s raining as they are made from a waterproof and breathable fabric plus they include fully tapered seams. They fit easily over shoes and include weatherproof zips. The ankle is elasticated with a Velcro fastening and the reflective detailing is perfect for night time safety. – Polaris Over Trousers
