Ah! Does this not make you think of those TV moments when Dad pushes little Johnny down the road on his Hero Junior Bike from Sports Direct for just £35, down from almost £80, then applauds with proud laughter while our audience-hearts just swell?
So, that may have sounded a little cynical to you, but really, I have great memories of learning to ride a bike, and cycling alongside my dad as he ran cross country marathons. I was even brave enough to cycle to work in South London, in my life before child. I've not been as brave since, to be honest!
But there are so many beautiful places to spend a family day out, even in the winter, in the UK, that little Johnny and Sarah learning to ride is not only good for their health, but great for family bonding too. But make sure everyone is on board – not like my sister who neglected to tell me there were no breaks on her bike the day she eagerly loaned it to me.
Aaaaaaanyway.... this 12 inch starter bicycle includes a fully enclosed chain guard to keep little fingers unpinched, handle bar safety pad, painted wheels and stabilisers and front and rear mudguards to hopefully divert some of that wintertime mud.
This bike is suitable for ages 2 – 4, and Sports Direct have more sizes for slightly more too. They also have both 24 hour or standard delivery.
