It’s not always easy to persuade your kids to get out there and ride – maybe you’ve bored them to death with tyre pressure discussions, scarred them for life with an epic bog slog, or they just don’t like bikes because you do. Whether you’re lucky enough to have shared your love of bikes with your progeny or are still trying to persuade them that bikes are great, we have five videos here that will surely make them see what the fun is all about.
Get inspired, have a giggle, and share some screen time.
To Dew List
Here’s an idea you could put into practice yourself. Write a list together then head off to see what you can find. Unless ‘have a wild poo’ is on your list, may we recommend careful preparation before heading out on anything too epic.
The Kids Are Alright
There are some very rad kids in this video – you might want to have a chat with yours about the concept of progression and the merits of starting small. It would also be a good opportunity to talk to them about the etiquette of digging, the importance of respecting the environment, and to take your litter home.
We Still Ride On
Just in case your kids think you are way too old to be cool or talented and that everyone over the age of 28 should be banned from TikTok, public dancing, or making jokes, here’s a video to show them that even quite old grown ups can do some pretty cool stuff too.
Skids are for kids, and those that like fun. This has got to be one of the stand our bike ad video. We love it, we hope your kids do too.
School’s Out for Rippers
Smile inducing enough that we don’t care that it’s advertising. Let’s ban cars and let our kids go charging out of school into the woods. Wouldn’t that be great?
Erice van Leuven
Another opportunity to talk about progression, making good choices, and perhaps the value in a good set of knee and elbow pads. Once you’ve got that out the way, you can ooh and ahh at the bike feats.
A video for the evening wind down. Just chilled shapes in the golden hour sunlight. Lovely.
