Explore Gift Ideas By Rider

Know who you're shopping for but not what they like? 

Here are some ideas based on some common kinds of riders.

Gifts for kids

Kids' bikes and helmets always make for a super special holiday gift. Bike bells come in fun designs and baskets are also great ideas. And don't forget a simple lock so their new wheels stay safe.

Gifts for commuters

Bike commuters are a hearty bunch who appreciate practicality and functionality. Safety gear like helmets, lights, bells, mirrors, and reflective clothing are safe bets. Cargo carrying solutions like racks and bags are also smart ideas. A strong portable lock is always a nice gesture, and fenders can help keep their clothes dry on wet roads.

Gifts for mountain bikers

Mountain bikers like to have fun in nature and get a little wild. Helmets and protective gear help keep them safe, while fun socks or cool gloves will keep them comfortable. MTB jerseys are a great idea, as are top tube bags and backpacks so they can carry flat kit essentials like pumps and tools. And if you really want to splurge, a nice car rack will transport their bikes to the trail easily and securely.

Gifts for road cyclists

Road cyclists love challenging themselves and they appreciate good gear that helps them perform. A cool new jersey is always welcome, as are jackets for bad weather, cyclo-computers for tracking mileage, lights for being seen on the road, and fun bottles for staying hydrated. Indoor trainers make an epic gift, as do sports watches and GPS units.
