Is your son or daughter on hockey and is he/she cycling there? That is very sporty and healthy and hopefully your child will also enjoy it a lot. But all that sporting means that your child has to cycle a lot every week: once or twice a week to the training and then a match in the weekend. If it is played at home, it is also on the bike again. Those six rides on the bike can be risky.
Safety on the bike
Of course you pay attention to the safety of your child’s bike (lighting in order, tyres inflated) and make sure that the bike is securely locked. But do you ever think that transporting the hockey stick can also be dangerous? Many children just hold their stick in their hands when they cycle. That may look cool, but it is very dangerous in traffic. Sticking out your hand can’t be a good thing and an emergency stop can cause accidents.
A stick bag in a nice colour
So buy a stick bag. For the costs you do not have to leave it and they are available in many nice colors. There are stick bags in all sizes, so no matter how big or small your child and his or her stick is, there is always a bag in the right size. The bag goes safely on the back and so nothing can go wrong when riding a bike.
Which is also handy: There is still a zipper pocket on the sticktas. So you can also take something with you when it’s not a weatherproof jacket and you don’t need an extra bag. Think of the bit, a hair elastic, a candy and some money.
A small effort, a great interest
Make your choice from the many stickbags that are for sale and do yourself and your son or daughter a favour. It is a small effort in the interest of your child’s safety in traffic during his bikeride!
