Sustainable cycling accessories for kids
28 January 2022
We all know that cycling is already an eco-friendly lifestyle and is a fantastic way to reduce your carbon footprint, by decreasing air pollution and tackling congestion. But there are other ways that can make cycling more sustainable too, with greener, more sustainable cycling kits.
We take a look at some great sustainable cycling accessories available for kids that will lower your impact on the environment:
Solar-powered bike lights
The new Rydon bike light is the new sustainable bike light that runs on solar-power, even on a cloudy day. And the housing is sustainable too - It uses a thick CNC milled aluminium metal housing that protects the light from impact.
Charging the battery is not necessary as the integrated solar panel automatically charges it for you. The light is permanently fixed on your bicycle with a stainless steel clamp so you can never forget it. You can also charge the light with a USB if required.

Vaude eco bike frame bag
The cruiser bag by Vaude is the perfect small bike frame bag for kids. It is made from sustainable materials and offers a water and stain-resistant finish to the outer fabric, without the use of environmentally harmful fluorocarbons (PFCs).

Muc-off x Frog Bikes cleaning kitBoth the Nano Tech Bike Cleaner and the Bio Dry Lube formulas are fully biodegradable and solvent-free, which means they’re both safe for the environment and safe for kids.
The Expanding Microcell Sponge is vacuum packed, using fewer packaging materials and taking up less space when shipped, therefore helping to reduce the product’s carbon footprint.
