At Bike & Scoot we aim to provide honest and independent advice you can trust about all things related to family cycling. We also want to make it easy for you to find the best bikes and cycling accessories for your kids, and we often do this by reviewing products.
To enable us to run Bike & Scoot successfully we need to form relationships with manufacturers, suppliers and retailers, as well as families who cycle. We also need to make enough money to fund the maintenance and development of the website, as well as earn a living to support our family. To do this we are members of several affiliate marketing schemes (as well as having advertising banners on our website).
How does affiliate marketing work?
Affiliate marketing is one of the main ways websites and blogs make money. A retailer is a member of an affiliate scheme (or runs their own scheme). When a link is clicked on from a website that is also a member of the affiliate scheme, and a purchase is made, the website gets a small commission. This does not affect the price of the item paid by you, our reader.
Which affiliate schemes does Bike & Scoot use?
We are members of the following Affiliate Marketing schemes:
Affiliatly, Avantlink, Amazon Affiliates, Ebay Partner Network, Enlistly, GoAffPro, Partnerize, Rakuten, Refersion, Skimlinks
Brands and retailers who have affiliate links on our website within these schemes include:
Prevelo Bikes Affiliate Program
Wild Child Bikes
Every time you, as one of our readers, makes a purchase through an affiliate link you’re helping keep Bike & Scoot to free to access resource for families – thanks so much!
We could make lot more money writing about cheap, low quality bike shaped objects as (unfortunately) these sell in much higher quantities. However, we firmly believe our readers want to hear about good quality kids bikes and cycling accessories that make cycling such fun.
Please rest assured that we also recommend bikes, products, retailers and brands that are not members of affiliate schemes. If we love something we’ll tell you about it, no matter where you can buy it! We’re particularly keen to support new young brands who are encouraging the next generation of cyclists.
