Win a Scooter worth £60 with Skatehut! [ended]

I remember when I got given my first proper bike, it was a red shiny classic bike and I got it for my 8th birthday. I felt SO grown up, and had no idea as my mum had hidden it in the neighbours garden shed so I wouldn’t find it! A few years later that was replaced with a mountain bike with twisty gears on the handlebars, and I still loved riding it even when I got knocked off by a car and broke my wrist (once the cast was off, obviously!)

At some point in my early teens I also discovered roller skating, and for a long time preferred ‘proper’ skates over inline skates but I think that’s because we used to go to a roller disco every few Saturday nights and you weren’t allowed inline skates there! I was always in awe of an older gent who would spend all his time in the middle of the arena doing fancy things with one leg behind his ear whilst spinning rapidly in a tight circle! The fanciest thing I could do was skate backwards I think!

Anyway, the point of my reminiscing is to introduce you to who sell pretty much any skater or bike/scooter rider could ever need! From safety equipment to storage bags and everything in between, including yo-yos and pogo sticks!  Orders over £20 are delivered for free and they offer a price match too!

So, if you have or know of a little person who would love to win a Micro Scooter from Skatehut UK then get entering below!

    I cannot remember my very first bike but I remember my dad teaching me how to ride without stabilizers by making me ride round and round our garden. I also had a budgie bike when I was little!

    I can’t recall a make but it was pink . It was brought from Halfords brand new. I remember hassling Mum and Dad to buy me one. They agreed as long as I realised it was a Christmas and birthday present, as they didn’t have a lot of money. It was one of my favourite things being out on my bike. All my friends had bikes too.

  28. 19th September 2014 / 12:10 pm

    I had a little red car and also a trike. The dog we had at the time used to copy what I did, so more often than not would sit on the trike like a human lol. Funny little thing.

    I remember my first bike well. I couldn’t have one while we were living abroad but I had been promised one as soon as we moved back to England so I had to be patient for a couple of years. As soon as we got back, my mum got me a second hand dark blue metallic bike with white wheels. My next task was to try to learn to ride it on the pathway in my grandmas garden. I went up and down lots of times falling off in the bushes or onto the lawn repeatedly until I finally worked out how to stay upright on it! My knees got quite scraped up in the process, but the worst bit was falling off into a whole bunch of nettles !
