What happens when daddy goes Christmas shopping? He comes back with a beautiful pink bike with matching helmet of course!
As a keen cyclist myself, I have wanted to get Xanthe her first bike for a long time, even before she could even actually walk! There are a whole array of balance bikes on the market but as I ride a Specialised myself and with a store near by this was my first choice. I’d done my research and decided that this was the one. So, I set off on a mission to get a test ride.
The assistant in the shop was very helpful and knowledgeable, as far as you can be with a balance bike. He altered the height of the seat and gave advice on appropriate fittings for a helmet for a one year old’s head. Once she’d sat astride it, the decision was made. Obviously, wishing to establish the importance of Santa in the process of gifting at Christmas, I gave a nod to the very helpful assistant and made a return visit without my own little elf for collection.
I couldn’t resist getting her her very own Hibbs Lupus Trust charity cycling jersey too for when she’s ready of course!
