Why a Bike Subscription Makes the Perfect Sustainable Gift
At a time when many are making more conscious purchasing choices, finding the perfect sustainable gift for Christmas can be tricky.
Enter bike subscriptions — a unique and eco-friendly way to gift not just a bicycle, but a world of fun days out and experiences. In this blog, we explore why a bike subscription stands out as the ideal sustainable gift.
Discover how this innovative approach to cycling leaves a lasting impact on both the recipient and the planet.
Environmental Impact of Bike Production
Bike production, like any manufacturing process, has some environmental impact. The extraction and processing of raw materials, such as steel, aluminium, and rubber, can release greenhouse gases and pollutants into the environment.
The manufacturing process itself also consumes energy and water and produces waste. However, bikes are a relatively sustainable mode of transportation, and their overall environmental impact is far lower than that of cars or other vehicles.
Embracing the principles of sustainability and a circular economy, Bike Club not only offers brand-new bikes but also operates a refurbishment program.
Bikes that we receive back, known as "reBikes," undergo meticulous refurbishing processes.
This extends the life of each bicycle and significantly reduces the demand for new raw materials and energy. We also make these reBikes available at a lower price point.
The Lifecycle of a Bike Club bike
When a child outgrows a Bike Club bike, it doesn't end up in the back of a graden shed or in a landfill. Instead, it undergoes a rigorous refurbishment to become a reBike, ready for a new rider.
Our mechanics give each bike a thorough check, fixing up what needs fixing and recycling what can't be salvaged. After a good scrub and service, every component is scrutinised, ensuring your kid gets a bike that's not just eco-friendly but also completely safe to ride.
By choosing a reBike, you're not just being green; you're also saving money. Monthly fees for reBikes are lower, making sustainable choices accessible for families.
So, if you're after an affordable and eco-friendly kids' bike on subscription, a reBike from Bike Club is the real deal. Join us in giving bikes a second life and making cycling even more sustainable.
Bike Club's subscription service offers a truly convenient way to ensure your child always has the perfect bike for their age and skill level. With our flexible subscription plans, you can exchange your child's bike as they grow, without having to worry about buying a new one each time.
Our extensive range of bikes caters to children of all ages and abilities, from balance bikes for toddlers to high-performance mountain bikes for experienced riders. We offer bikes from brand-name manufacturers like Cube, Woom, Wethepeople, Forme, and more, ensuring you're always getting the best quality bikes available.
With Bike Club, you'll never have to worry about your child outgrowing their bike.
How to Wrap a Bicycle for Christmas
There are so many ways to wrap a bike and we know that for parents it can be quite an art (or a challenge!). So, here are some of our favourite ideas for wrapping a bike and taking care of every detail of that Christmas magic that the little ones are so excited to give.
Wrap up the Bike Club Box
All our bikes are delivered in convenient boxes, so all you have to do is wrap the box up and you are ready to go! This way they will have no idea what to expect. If you are exchanging for a bike and have lost your old box, another option is to…
Make it Stand Out
Make the gift the centre of attention! Wrapping the bike in an eye-catching and obvious way can add to the excitement. Use colourful wrapping paper and make sure the wheels and shape of the bike are clearly visible. Add colourful balloons and ribbons to make the package even more eye-catching - make it the gift everyone wants to see open first!
Make it Look Like Something Else
Play on misdirection and make the wrapping part of the mystery. Surprise your little one by making them think their gift is something else. Use boxes of different sizes and shapes to confuse them. For example, put the bike in one box and then put the bike in a bigger box and so on, put as many boxes as you want/can find! This way, you will create intrigue and fun before they discover the exciting surprise.
Don't Wrap it up, Hide it
Hide it and create a treasure hunt for your little one to find it. If you prefer not to wrap the bike, turn the delivery into an exciting Christmas treasure hunt. Leave clues in different places around the house, each leading to the next, until they finally discover the bike. This option builds anticipation and fun, making gift-giving a memorable experience for your little explorer.
