Kids’ bike brand, Frog Bikes, has teamed up with BBC Children in Need to launch a limited edition spotty Frog Bike to help raise funds for the charity. With a commitment to selling primarily through independent bike retailers the limited edition Pudsey Frog Bikes are now on sale at selected independent bike stores across the UK.

The spotty bike, featuring the well-known Pudsey Bear on its headtube, is available across the full range of sizes, with Frog Bikes donating £25 to charity for every limited edition bike sold. By adding Pudsey's famous spots to Frog’s already colourful range, Frog Bikes are hoping to make cycling even more fun for kids, whilst making a difference to the lives of disadvantaged children across the UK.

Local bike store, The Edinburgh Bicycle Co-operative, who have a store in Chapel Allerton, is backing the initiative by stocking the Pudsey Bike and they have done a roaring trade ensuring that Frog Bikes make a real splash for Children in Need.

As well as offering an exciting and affordable product for young and first-time cyclists, Frog Bikes are both enjoyable and safe to ride with high quality, branded and child- specific components. Familiar names such as Shimano and Tektro appear across the range with specially adapted parts such as easy-twist gears and slim-grip brakes. The bikes can also cater for growth spurts as the extra-long seat post is quick- release and easily adjustable.

The starter model is the Tadpole balance bike. Weighing in at just 4kg and costing £100, it is designed to introduce young children to cycling and make the transition to pedals really easy. From the Tadpole, the rest of the range increases in size through to the largest model, the Frog 73, which still only weighs 10 kg and costs £290.

Since their introduction into the market earlier this year, the response to Frog Bikes has been phenomenal and the company has been shortlisted for two national awards: the National Business Award for New Business of the Year, and the Bike Biz Bike Brand of the Year Award.

Shelley Lawson, founder of Frog Bikes said: “We were delighted when the BBC approached us to create a special range of bikes for Children in Need.”

She continued: “Our whole philosophy is about making cycling easier and more accessible for all children, and we love to see kids enjoying themselves on their bikes. Now parents can choose a bike that will put a smile on their own kids’ faces, as well as benefiting some of the more disadvantaged kids in UK.”
