Happy New Year to you all. Hope 2019 has started well and
continues in the same vain for you all. Even though the very first Kickbike was built in 1991, some 28
years ago, 2019 is the 25th anniversary of Kickbike Worldwide as a company, and therefore a celebration
of the very first production run in 1994.
We intend celebrating by running many activities
and events, plus we will also introduce a new 25th anniversary model. Kickbike Worldwide have kept the
details secret so far, but they are in production now, and we will see them in Australia hopefully by
the end of February. I hope to have details and photos by the end of January, so will publish them as
soon as I can. Our tag line for this year of celebration is "never grow old" #nevergrowold
So, the kicks for the next 4 weeks are
