Holiday Biking Gifts for Kids that Love Bikes

Holiday Gifts for Kids that Love Bikes

5 minute read.

The holiday season is just around the corner, time to decide on gifts for your loved ones, we think a new bike and bike accessories will be a huge hit! 

Bikes are some of the best and most rewarding gifts for kids, because they give independence, build confidence, promote a healthy lifestyle and offer year round FUN.  Be it your own kid, a friend’s child, or your siblings’ children, hang on tight as we are about to explore with you a range of bike-related gifts that any kid would absolutely adore! 


Do you want a gift that can be positively useful as well as a blast all year long? Not only is it a pleasurable physical activity, but also great for gaining independence and confidence. They can explore, embark on adventures and follow the rhythm of their heart with a new bike!

There are numerous different style bikes to choose from in the kids' bike category. First narrow down the desired riding style your child seeks and ultimately their long term cycling goals. It's common to start with a simple bike without excessive features to build a solid foundation of bike riding skills. Coaster brakes, single speeds, and balance bikes are all examples of user friendly technology popular with young children's bikes. 

As their riding improves and they grow, so can their bike's abilities. Upgrading to a bike with gears, higher quality brakes and components designed for the style of riding is the next step as your child's riding improves. Kids' bikes are often split between hybrid/road bike style and mountain bike style. 

Here are some options for bicycles that you can gift your young ones:

These bikes are on par with adult bikes, yet feature 26" wheels offering better handling for a growing teen. They have strong brakes and can make any adventurous journey enjoyable. Gift this to someone who is willing to up their game in bicycling.
