NEVER BUY A KIDS BIKE AGAIN
Kids grow fast – sometimes really fast – and unfortunately their bikes don’t grow with them. To keep your child on the right size bike you’ll need to buy them 8 bikes before they’re 12. That’s a lot of time, and effort spent buying and selling kids bikes. Or worse still those bikes end up in landfill or as one of the estimated 12.5 million unused kids bikes sat in the back of sheds and garages across the UK. There is a solution that is better for kids, parents and the lovely planet; subscribe instead. By subscribing to Bike Club parents will never have to buy a kids bike again, and their kids will always have the perfect size bike.
HOW EXPENSIVE ARE KIDS BIKES?
Kids bikes are more expensive than many people think. A good quality lightweight kids bike for a 6 year old will cost more than £300, and those bikes will only get more expensive as your child grows. That’s a big chunk of money to spend upfront every 12-18months, and there’s no guarantee that you’ll even be able to sell the bike on. By subscribing parents are able to spread the cost across the months that they are actually using the bike. Whenever your child outgrows the bike you can simply exchange for the next size up. That makes Bike Club the much more affordable option when it comes to getting a kid bike.

WHY SHOULD I SUBSCRIBE TO BIKE CLUB?
When we say never buy a kids bike again, we have good reason. Subscribing instead means that your child will always have the perfect size bike that can be exchanged as they grow. It’s the affordable option with no large up-front fees and is flexible in that bikes can be exchanged, or subscriptions cancelled at any time should your circumstances change.
Because we refurbish all of our exchanged bikes and because we exist to give kids the perfect riding experience, we only work with the best quality kids bike brands out there. That means that you know you’ll be getting a lightweight, quality bike that will last. In fact our team of expert mechanics are the industry leaders in kids bike maintenance and perform the most thorough safety checks anywhere in the industry.
Importantly with Bike Club parents can subscribe to either a brand-new kids bike or a pre-love reBike. When you exchange your bike as your child grows we collect the old bike at the same time as the new bike and refurbish it in our workshop for a new family to ride and love. In fact because our bikes are used multiple times they save on average 336kg co2 vs an owned bike. That’s the same as having your heating on full blast for 3 days straight.
WHY ARE LIGHTWEIGHT KIDS BIKES SO IMPORTANT?
Kids will find learning to ride far easier and more enjoyable on a lightweight bike than on a cheap and heavy bike. Imagine trying to ride a bike that weighed as much as you do - no fun right? That's exactly what we expect from kids when we compromise on weight and quality. By subscribing to rather than buying a kids bike, you're able to spread the cost and afford a premium quality lightweight bike.
