Trio of national awards for wheely enterprising Leamington firm

A WHEELY enterprising Leamington couple who set up a balance bike business are celebrating triple national awards success.

Kidvelo Bikes, run by Karen and Gary Wood has been named the winner at the 2022 British Business Awards in the Start-Up Category as well as scooping Gold for the Best Balance Bike in the Made for Mums 2022 Toy Awards and Best Bike in the Organic Baby Awards.

Kidvelo specialises in manufacturing quality but affordable balance bikes designed to help children learn to ride, from their base in Warwick Street’s Chandos Business Centre.

Karen, who received the latest accolade at the prestigious British Business Awards ceremony said: “We were honoured even to make the shortlist. From concept to the finished bikes in stock, meant we have had to dig deep and overcome countless challenges over the last two years.

“To win is very exciting and testament to our high standards of customer support, the quality and design of our bikes and I’m delighted that our mission to get more children riding top-quality well-designed affordable bikes has been recognised by our peers.”
