Family Cycling

With the right bike, such as a Frog lightweight kids bike. The right accessories and of course a FollowMe tandem, family cycling can be very enjoyable for everyone involved.
Often bike shops are rammed full of super expensive road bikes, mountain bikes and whatever is trendy for the area that the shop is based. It is understandable, the shop owner and staff are probably interested in selling what is of interest to them or what they make the highest margin on.
Through my 20+ years in the bike trade I have spent a lot of time speaking to people about their cycling needs and through this "market research" I realised that there was a real lack of family cycling focussed stores.

The quality lightweight kids bike brands I stock are Frog and LIKEtoBIKE

In 2008 I opened a showroom in addition to my existing shop in Tadcaster. The focus; family cycling products. I wanted to create a space where families could come and see a range of products that could enhance their time on the bikes. Lots of quality kids bikes, LIKEaBIKEs, Trailers, child seats, helmets, childrens cycling clothing and lets not forget all the important accessories like pumps, mirrors, locks and lights.

After 3 years the concept had proven to be a great success with people travelling from all over the U.K and beyond to visit. It was then time to expand, so I built an even bigger, purpose built showroom so that I could display even more (the range had grown so it was a must). I have always stayed true to the original concept but managed to build on it so now it is in the 5th year of trading and the shop never been busier!

From the showroom I also run the only cycle hire business for miles around. What is very handy is the Sustrans route 66 and 67 are joined to Thorp Arch Estate, which is where the shop is based. The Wetherby railway route is ideal for family cycling so lots of product testing takes place on the cycle path.

For 2012 I believe it is time that we take the concept online so please enjoy browsing followmetandem.co.uk and the range that I have put together for you. As I find more products that tick all the boxes I will add them to the range.


"Cycling with portable children can be a positive joy. They love being outdoors in the fresh air, up close to nature. One of the advantages of pulling children on your bike is the ‘encouragement'. When you are going too slow for your little passengers - you can be sure you will be told about it."
