Welcome to Like2Bike

Like2Bike, nurtures early cycling development and has been in operation since 2012.

 

We are an events company that specializes in promoting and organizing kids cycling and running events, as well as children-specific skills clinics.

The Like2Bike event series consists of 6 events throughout the year.

 

There are great distances on offer for mountainbike and duathlon categories, on various trails in and around Gauteng.

 

The children can be entered into FUN categories: 2km, 5km, 10km and duathlon where mom/dad can run/ride for no extra cost other then the childs entry, and child's number board. The racing snakes will tackle the 10km and 15km routes solo.

The duathletes have 3 distances to choose from: POWER: 2km run, 10km MTB, 1km run. MID: 1km run, 5km MTB, 500m run and LITE: 500m run, 2km MTB, 250m run.

 

If your child completes 4 of the 6 events, they receive a series champ cycle top at the end of the series.

 

Our skills clinics and school extra murals skills clinics are great fun and confidence boosters. Your child will learn valuable handling skills both on, and off, the bike.

 

In addition to the Like2Bike events, we organise events for schools, estates and corporates and assist in event fund raisers such as The Beaulieu Challenge

 

Be belive in giving the child opportunities to learn and grow with confidence, getting outdoors and letting kids, be kids!

When it comes to bikes, we pride ourselves in being able to offer LIKEaBIKE balance bikes, and LIKEtoBIKE pedal bikes

 

LIKEaBIKE is designed abd manufactured by Kokua Holzspielzeug GmbH in Roetgen, Germany. Kokua is a Hawaiian word meaning "harmony", and it is a family owned business run by Rolf, Alfred and Beate Mertens.

 

LIKEaBIKE  are so well made that Kokua provides a two-year guarantee against defects - amazing for a wooden product designed for children.

The first step in picking a bike is getting the right size.  Where adult bikes are sized by the frame (measured from the centre of the bottom bracket to the top of the seat tube), bikes for children are sized by their wheel diameter: 12”, 16”, 20” and 24”.  The bike should fit the child.   The rider should be able to dismount and comfortably straddle the bike flat footedly.  And then with a slight lean of the bike, get their bottom back onto the seat, put their foot on the pedal and, when the skill is there, ride away.  They shouldn’t be riding scrunched up with their knees hitting the handlebars and they shouldn’t be stretched out and unable to turn the handlebars easily.  At the slow speeds that kids start out riding at, steering by turning the handlebars is much more of an element of riding than at faster speeds where steering is done largely by leaning.  If there are training wheels on the bike, all of the steering is done with the handlebars.
