9 Ripper Gifts For Dads Who Love Cycling

Is your Dad cycling obsessed? Because we have the gifts he will LOVE. From books to ‘balls’, we’ve got it all. Here are 9 ripper gifts made for cycling obsessed Dads…

1. FIFTY PLACES TO BIKE BEFORE YOU DIE BOOK

“If you know someone who can’t view a landscape without visualizing themselves traversing it on two wheels, Fifty Places to Bike Before You Die is a sound gift choice.” The San Francisco Chronicle
If your Dad loves exploring on his bike, this book will fill him with ideas. The unknown is exciting. As Heinz Stucke wrote, “It is the unknown around the corner that turns my wheels.”

 

2. KIKKERLAND LEATHER BIKE CUP HOLDER

This cup holder clips onto the handlebars so it’s easily accessible. You might think a cup holder for someone exercising is perfect to hold water. But no. This is for a cyclist. So it’s perfect for their cup of coffee that goes so well with a morning ride.

 

3. 14-IN-1 BIKE TOOL WITH HANDY CARRY POUCH

This incredibly handy device has 5 allen keys, 2 screwdrivers, 1 socket wrench, and 5 wrenches. Its small size and nylon pouch makes it easy to carry. It’s a must have for serious cyclists. Your Dad will be relieved to have it when his bike has trouble.

 

4. BIKE BALLS: THE OVERCONFIDENT LED REAR BICYCLE LIGHT

There’s a serious side and a silly side to this gift idea. The serious side is that the LED light will help keep your Dad safe on the road at night. And the silly side, do we really need to explain what’s silly about a bicycle light that looks like a scrotum?

 

5. ‘I LOVE MY BIKE’ BOOK

This is a collaboration between Mather Finkle and Brittain Sullivan, a photographer, and a writer. They share stories, anecdotes, and interviews with passionate bike riders. They articulate the passion that only hardcore cyclists can understand, “Cycling is about joy. Every trip on a bike – to the store, to the office, across the state, or across a country – is an adventure.” If your Dad is part of the cycling tribe, he’s sure to identify with this book.

 

6. BIKENDS BOOKENDS

You’ve already seen two awesome books for cyclists in this list. So of course you need some bike shaped bookends to go with the books!

 

7. NITE IZE LED BICYCLE SPOKELIT SPOKE LIGHT

Sure, these Spoke Lights will make your Dad more visible when he’s riding, and thus much safer. But really, he’ll love them because they look awesome! People will be turning their heads to watch him whiz by.

 

8. NITE IZE LED CLIP-ON MARKER SAFETY LIGHT

This clip-on light makes your Dad even more visible to cars at night. Simply clip it on and off he rides. Simple and safe.

 

9. WIRELESS PORTABLE RECHARGEABLE MINI BLUETOOTH SPEAKER

The problem with earphones when you ride is they can drown out outside noise that’s crucial to hear – like a car honking or other cyclist ringing their bell. This wireless speaker solves that problem. You can listen to your music while still being alert to your surroundings. Simply clip it to your bike or backpack and you’re set.

 

Cycling starts as a hobby, turns into a passion, and finally, after thousands of kilometres, a few punctures, and hundreds of coffee breaks; it becomes an obsession that lasts a lifetime. You know your cycling gifts will be treasured for years to come. And if you want to spoil your Dad this Father’s Day, you can find more Father’s Day gifts here.
