Evans Cycles, The UK’s largest specialist cycle retailer reports a 200% growth in sales of BMX Bikes and Kid’s Bikes this Christmas

Forget robot dogs, IPod docks and expensive computer consoles that once occupied the wish lists of Christmas past. Sales of BMX Bikes and Children’s Bikes have been soaring ever since the start of November and aren’t likely to let up in the weeks approaching the big day.

“With no obvious killer gadget on the market this year, bikes have returned to their rightful place at the top of the Christmas wish list” says Evans Cycles Managing Director, Mike Rice “Bikes are a much better long term purchase for consumers, unlike gadgets they won’t be replaced by another fad in the coming months, can be used all year round and will provide years of use.”

The reignited popularity in bikes is no doubt also being fuelled by the health benefits of cycling. Rather than children spending hours in front the TV, bikes get kids outside enjoying the fresh air and surroundings while having fun with friends.

Despite the credit crunch the public is showing a strong appetite for quality products. “Not only are our unit sales up, but the average selling price of BMX’s and Children’s bikes are up too” says Rice “people realise that bikes are not disposable items, and that investing a bit more up front will result in a more enjoyable cycling experience and pay off in the longer term.”


Mongoose BMX’s are our best selling brand of BMX at the moment” says Evans Cycles Head of Bike Buying, Joel Natale “They offer great designs and real value for money starting at £155”

“Another popular choice” continues Joel “are Jump Bikes – ruggedly built mountain bikes designed for urban riding, jumping and throwing around with the Pinnacle Redart Jump Bike being a top seller at £199.”
