Kids Bike Sales are Rising

According to an industry magazine, Bicycle Retailer, the biggest increase of imported bikes, from China, were kids’ that were up by 48% over last year.  This is a great step forward, and something that I see daily in the bike shop.   More families have been buying into the hobby of the cycling instead of the adults viewing it as a sport that needs to be competed in.  Sharing their love with their family and especially their children.  I wouldn’t be surprised going into the summer if we see that number increase to an even greater number as school lets out and family trips are planned.

An on going series we have had on Bike Shop Girl has been family bike riding.  As May comes to an end we hope to expand this series to help you get your family on their bikes this summer.

    I think we’re going to see this trend continuing for a while….and it’s so great to see. With more and more adults getting into cycling, there is going to be more and more kids bikes being purchased. It would be great to see more and more families going carless as well.

    We bought both our kids new bikes last year and as a cyclist, it is one of the greatest moments in a Dad’s life. I also just taught my Son to ride on 2 wheels last month and it was the best thing ever.

    Nice post.
