Ride Safe

The world has learnt a lot over the centuries and probably one of the most significant advances in the modern era is safety. We are encouraged, expected and trained to work safely in our homes and have standards and recommendations in place where ever we turn. All for good reason, there is nothing more important than safe guarding human life.
This is also true for riding bikes and as responsible parents this safety culture starts with us. Encourage your child to always ride his trike, scooter and bike with the correct protection will foster a safe centred approach to all they do going forward.

Training Wheels

Training wheels have long been the best way for children to learn to ride their first bike.
It is often an advantage to progress from a trike first then onto a bike so the fundamentals of steering and pedalling have been learnt in a safer environment where the child balance is taken care of by the trike.
Often the training wheels should be just that "training" devices used to assist the child to the next step in riding a bike without them. Often through poor set up and incorrect adjustment they can also be the cause of problems in learning to ride.

The first quarter of 2011 has been a busy one for the Jestomic team. Our new look website is developing well and we are now looking towards expanding the product range offered.
We have started this by stocking the fantastic "Treadley Helmet Hats" offering both an individual look to your riding experience as well as all important sun protection much needed in any activity we do outdoors.
More new products soon to be added include a rigid parent handle for those who prefer a fixed handle rather than the original "Push me Home" type.
Shortly we will also be adding a unique rear bag holder along with an exciting range of trailers to suit children’s bikes as well as a range for adults suited to small shopping trips or picnics.
