Bike Ride Checklist ✓

Helmets: Safe and comfortable helmets are a priority. Check to see whether you and your children’s helmets fit properly. (We have a handy guide to help you if you aren’t sure about this.)  ✓

Bikes: Ensure that all of your bikes are appropriate for your size and your saddles are in the proper position. This will help to make your cycle fun and blister-free. (Sustrans’ short guide on selecting the proper bike for your child is a great resource for newcomers!) ✓

Bell: Having a bell attached to all of your bikes is a must for road safety. ✓

Lights: Reflective and white lights are required by law on all bikes. Make sure all of your bikes have these fitted and that they are in good condition. ✓

Tyre Pump: Don’t let a flat tyre ruin your adventure! You never know when it could happen so be prepared. ✓

Snacks and Drinks: Bring along a small hamper of healthy snacks and plenty of water to keep everyone happy and hydrated! ✓

Be prepared for the weather: Make sure you bring some warm and waterproof clothes with you. You can never trust British weather! ✓
