Beginner's Bicycle Accessories

My kids just learned how to ride bikes. They love them. It's so much fun for them, and it gives us an excuse to get out of the house and off the electronics.

Beginner's Bicycle Accessories

Nobody told me, though, about these other things I should buy when I got my kids their bicycles.

Helmet and pads

My five year old was very determined to learn how to ride by himself. He never even used training wheels. He just kept trying time and time again,  which meant that he kept falling time and time again. A few scrapes and bumps are normal, but you want to protect your kids as much as possible, so invest in some pads and a helmet. This could protect your chld from a serious injury.  

Bike Pump

The tire pressure of my kids' bikes changes depending on the weather, and I'm constantly trying to adjust it, so a good bike pump will make it easier to keep those tires at the right pressure. Unfortunately, I got one that didn't work well, so I spent a lot of time trying to get it right.

Horn or Bell

There's just something about the sound of a bicycle bell or horn that brings great memories. Kids love to ride down the driveway ringing their bell, and it also helps others to know they are there. Get a good one so you don't have to replace it often.


My daughter loves to take her babies for rides on her bike, so a basket is indispensable for her. If your kids like to pretend to be super heroes or something else, there's no doubt that they'll want to take something with them when they go outside to ride bikes. If they've got a basket or something similar, they'll use it often.

These bike accessories will help your kids love to play outside and ride their bikes. Every kid should have them as they learn to ride their bicycles.
