We’re keen to get as many kids having fun on their bikes as possible this summer. As soon as your kids have learned to ride there’s not much more they need than open space, their bike and a helmet – and maybe a few friends to ride with.
However, if your child is developing a real passion for cycling and wants to join a local cycling club or start competing in races or triathlons, you can really help them maximise their fun by providing them with comfortable cycling clothing, especially designed for kids.
If your son or daughter is cycling mad, this summer is the perfect opportunity to encourage them to take their cycling to the next level! With all the excitement of Le Grande Depart taking place in Yorkshire this summer, a whole raft of youngsters are sure to be inspired by the thrill of watching the Tour’s elite cyclists racing through the UK. Let’s hope for another successful year for the UK!
Cycle clothing for kids (just as with adults) needs to be bright, lightweight and breathable. At The Little Bike Company we have created a select collection of clothing. Our range is perfect for dealing with the heat of summer and also those inevitable downpours.
One of the designers of childrens cycling clothing we are particularly impressed by is Pere. Made in the same factory as Rapha’s range of clothing, Pere Performance kids’ clothes are resistant to the elements, fast-wicking and very comfortable.
“The technical fabrics in our garments are the same used by the elite cyclists riding for todays’ Pro teams. Together with ergonomic fit and high performance materials, Pere cycling gear ensures the ultimate fit and comfort. Each Pere style is perfect for the younger rider offering different levels of protection, be it waterproof, windproof, breathability and warmth plus safety features such as effective reflectivity!”
