A couple of months ago my son turned four and my husband and I were yet again challenged to find a gift that he would love and that meet our (his parents) sustainable criteria. As my son had outgrown his balance bike we quickly decided on a proper bike with pedals.
In Denmark – and in particularly Copenhagen – we are famous for our bike culture, so I expected it to be easy-peasy to find one, but in fact I had to go all the way to England to find a cool and sustainable kids bike; the Early Rider Belter.
It’s made of aluminium* which means it weighs only 5,5kg and my son can easily lift the bike himself over obstacles such as curb stones. It´s designed with low rolling resistance and the best part is the belt drive that won’t get gunked up by dirt and grease, so daddy doesn’t have to worry about maintaining it!
The design is pretty cool too and styled with hip accessories and a funky bike helmet, it’s the coolest kids bike ever AND sustainable too!
Check out their website earlyrider.com and their social media profiles on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
*Yes, I know aluminium is polluting, but this bike is high in quality and can be passed on when he has outgrown it.
I’m expecting my second child come September – another little boy. And although I’ve saved all the good gear from my firstborn son I still need bits and pieces to be completely ready for the little ones arrival. As we don’t have a room available for the baby yet, I don’t need to think about […]
