Cycle Sprog is a great cycling blog in the UK run by a husband and wife and features their two boys as well.
We happened across it today and found to our delight that they have experienced the awesomeness of Turbospoke!
You can read all about it here, but below is a great photo of their son rocking around on a Turbospoke Raleigh Hot Rod on the kids test track at this years NEC Cycle Show!
However if you have kids and are wondering about some great Christmas gift ideas, this site and article have plenty of great recommendations.
Thanks Cycle Sprog.

Turbospoke has been awarded Gold in the 2012 Toyology Outdoor Toy Awards! Turbospoke faced off stiff competition from leading toy brands to walk away with a win in the 'Best Accessory' category of the coveted awards.
The Toyology awards are unlike any other because all of the winners are chosen by kids! 30 Children formed the judging panel at this years awards. The result of this was best summed up by Lewis Tyler of Toy News who said
“The Toyology Outdoor Toy Award winners were decided entirely by kids – which makes the event genuinely unique, and also means the winners badge is proof that a product actually provides a level of play that children respect”.
We are extremely proud of the award here at Turbospoke and have posted it onto the front page of our website, look!
A big thank you to Peter Jenkinson of Toyology for coordintaing the awards and of course to the judging panel for choosing Turbospoke!

Turbospoke has appeared with some prime coverage in the UK's leading toy trade publication; Toy News.
The article, published today on the Toy News website, details the appointment of Ernest the Bear Toys as Turbospokes exclusive distributor for the UK & Ireland. This week marks the official launch of Turbospoke in the UK at the London Toy Fair, at Olympia. The Toy Fair, which is a trade only event, runs until the 26th January and showcases the latest and greatest that the toy market has to offer.

BikeRadar.com one of the UK's most current and influential cycling publications has featured Turbospoke in their new products section!
The article appeared this week and gives Turbospoke a great mention. Turbospoke appears alongside a number of other new products. Most of them are related to keeping you cycling in the winter months, by lighting your path, keeping you warm or keeping your bike in tip top condition. It doesn't quite say why or how Turbospoke will assist your winter cycling, but we think we've figured it out. It's awesome, it will encourage you to go out on your bike even if it's wet and cold and when you do start cycling you'll be having so much fun that you'll cycle faster, longer and ultimately stay fit in the long winter months. Simple!
Whatever the reason, we're very grateful for the coverage and the guys at Bike Radar for the great exposure.
