Kids & Family Cycling
Owning a bicycle creates new transportation options. A bicycle is so much more than a toy: it is the first vehicle many children ever ride on their own. Let your child discover the responsibility associated with controlling a vehicle, but also the exhilaration and freedom that come with it. We provide options for your child from the tiniest balance bike to first adult bike, as well as solutions for you to carry children with you if they are too small to pedal independently, or if the distance is too great.
If you and your family are interested in a specialty set-up, such as the Family Tandem pictured above, or cargo bike, we have plenty of experience with such products and will be happy to work with you on making it a reality.
Kids Bikes we stock
Coming Soon: Batch Bicycles
Batch Bicycles offers an uncluttered selection of simple, well-designed kids bikes in three shiny colors: blue, orange and black, as well as limited edition Spiderman and Frozen bikes for the smallest riders. Coming soon to Cosmic Bikes, or call us to order yours today!
Special Order: Cleary Bikes
Kids’ bikes built with the quality of premium adult bikes. Meticulously engineered for kid proportions, lightweight (Hedgehog is 16lbs, Owl is 19lbs), with thoughtful kid-specific components, Cleary bikes are a joy to ride, and will easily last through several young riders. Cleary bikes do not accept training wheels. Special order only (for now)…
In addition to children’s bikes, we offer a variety of child carrier options to help you bike together as a family. Please also visit our Cargo Bike page for even more family cycling option.
Bike-Mounted baby seats
These can be mounted on the back of almost any standard adult bike, as well as on cargo bikes. Designed for kids to about 40lbs. Prices range from $175 to $200 plus installation.
Burley Kazoo Trailer Bike
This is one of the best designed tagalongs on the market. It turns an ordinary adult bicycle into a child-friendly tandem. It attaches to your bike by means of a proprietary rear rack, which improves the tracking and safety of the device, but also gives you a useful place to carry bags, which is difficult to do with other popular tagalongs. Burley Kazoo retails for $299.
Tow-behind child trailers
Child trailers carry one or two kids, and have substantial cargo space. They feature safety harnesses, ventilated panels, a bug net and rain cover. They convert to a stroller configuration (for when you bike to the zoo and want to stroll around), and fold flat for storage. A child trailer makes great grocery hauler when your kids are not in it. We carry trailers from Burley and Thule. Stroller-convertible models are available from $400.
