Raleigh Kids Bikes; the best for children

By John Kumar Subscribe to RSS | December 17th 2011 | Views:

There is hardly a kids’ toy that boasts of higher popularity amongst kids as a bicycle does. As a child grows up he or she loves to imitate adults in every way possible.

Riding a bike is so much like an adult that despite bruises and falls, kids love to learn to ride a bike. Summer holidays, Christmas breaks where there is fair weather at the time, are times when the public parks and lonely roads witness many cheap kids bikes with happy children on them.

Nowadays, most kids graduate from the tricycle to a small bicycle by the age of five or six because cheap kids bikes are freely available. But only a decade or two ago, very few Bicycle companies manufactures bikes for kids. It was only in the 1980s that there was a revolution of kinds and the famous and oldest bike company Raleigh came out with a range of Raleigh Kids Bikes that all kids coveted.

Located in England the oldest and best bike company in the world manufactured the kids Raleigh bikes in England and marketed them all over the world. It was a common sight to see parents holding the rear end high handle of Raleigh Kids Bikes while the kid was learning to balance the two-wheeler bike. And after a while, when the kid got the hang of it and pedaled hard, the parent would leave the handle and let the kid maneuver the bike by itself without knowing that the guiding adult id no longer there to hold in case it lost balance and toppled over. Then there would be much rejoicing when, the child no longer felt the need for adult supervision and the parents were also confident about the child’s new found abilities! One hurdle in the path of learning to be an adult had been crossed!

Raleigh Kids Bikes were well-known all over the world and kids between the ages of 7 and 14 yearned to have them. It was really considered ‘cool’ for kids to own Raleigh Kids Bikes. There were other cheap kids bikes in the market but they did not have the features that the new models of Kids Raleigh Bikes had and these features were the coolest.

In the 1980s, almost a century after the Raleigh Cycle Company started manufacture of bicycles in England, the company came out with kids Raleigh Bikes, which became instantly successful. The’ Chopper’, the model which won the love of millions of school going children all over the world was a high backer bike with wide tyres and long seats. It tried to look like a motorcycle, which was very cool and the gears gave the kids a feeling of adulthood, very much what the kids have always wanted. Raleigh Kids Bikes are still very popular although there are tens of imitations in the market.
