Mother’s Day Gifts for Cyclists

Mother’s Day Gifts for Cyclists

Anyone who thinks mothers are hard to shop for clearly doesn’t have a mom who rides. We’re easy—if you can’t offer us a responsibility-free Mother’s Day out on a bike, you can always buy some cycling gear to get us pumped for the next big ride. Of course, a new bike would be our first choice, but we get it if that’s not in the budget this year. If you’re still looking for some last-minute ideas for Mother’s Day coming up this Sunday, May 10, here are 20 great gift ideas for the next best thing.

Machines for Freedom Signature Cap

This lightweight cotton twill cap comes in fun bright orange or classic black, so it’s easy to match her favorite kit. Not only does it look great under a helmet and keep the sun off the eyes, but it keeps helmet hair in check when she wants to make a coffee stop. Or, get her this set of whimsical floral patterned caps.

Po Campo Kinga Handlebar Bag

No need to choose between carrying a bag or using a handlebar basket—this one is both. It easily attaches to any handlebar via two velcro straps and has a concealable shoulder strap that converts it to a crossbody bag when you park your bike. The fabric is water-repellent, so it will shed light rain, plus it has a reflective strip on the front to make you more visible while riding. Inside the bag are three elastic pockets and a zippered pocket to organize your daily essentials.

Lonely Planet’s Epic Bike Rides of the Americas

Get Mom this gorgeous coffee table book to inspire her next post-COVID-19 cycling vacation or fuel her daydreams. It offers 200 of North, Central, and South America’s best routes of all different lengths website design jacksonville FL and difficulty levels, including bikepacking in Baja, road riding in Colombia, mountain biking in Canada, and gravel riding in Pennsylvania. Each entry is written by cyclists (including some by Bicycling editors) who loved riding that route and has beautiful photos, as well as a map and tips for how to start planning your trip to each destination.

Second Send Upcycled Bike Tire Feather Earrings

There’s no shortage of up-cycled items made from old inner tubes, but these might be our favorites. The subtle earring don’t scream BICYCLE GEEK like some bike-themed gifts do, but nod toward our favorite activity in a feminine way. They’re handmade in Israel and only cost $2 for shipping.

Nutribullet Blender

Upgrade her old, too-loud blender with the compact Nutribullet, so she can treat herself to nutritious and yummy personal smoothies after her rides. Better yet, Nutribullet is currently offering 15 percent off if you use the code MOM15.

Uncommon Goods Bike Chain Frame

Display a photo of mom and her favorite riding partner (you, of course) in this 5×7 frame. Handmade from recycled chains by a craftsman in Oregon, this frame has earned an average 4.8 out of 5 rating on Uncommon Goods from over 400 happy customers.

Portland Design Works Coffee Cup Holder

If she loves coffee, she’ll appreciate this cup holder that mounts directly onto the handlebar to bring along a travel mug or to-go cup from the local coffee shop for her rides.

Custom Frame Decals

Give Mom the gift of personalization with these custom vinyl stickers. They’ll adhere to a frame, helmet, laptop, water bottle, or any other hard surface she wants to claim as her own. Choose between 11 text color options and six different fonts when ordering. They’re approximately three quarters of an inch tall and four to seven inches long, but you can specify a size if you know where she will want to put them.

Fitbit Charge 4

Smartwatches have had serious upgrades since she got her first Fitbit—and now’s a great time to upgrade to the new Charge 4. This slim smartwatch is equipped with built-in GPS, activity and sleep tracking, 24/7 heart rate monitoring, apps like Spotify to listen to music, and Fitbit Pay for easy on-the-go purchases, and a free 90-day trial of Fitbit Premium.

KustomCaps Cat Headset Cap

Jewelry is nice, but there’s also bling for her bike. Personalize her ride with one of these decorative headset caps from KustomCaps. They’ve got a little something for everyone, like sugar skulls and camera dials. Or make it your own and opt for a cap with a personalized message.

Crane Copper Bell

Add some custom flair to her bike with this copper designer bell. Despite its stylish looks, its ring will also resonate loud and clear.

Velocio Floral SE Jersey

Flowers are nice, but once they’re in your house the clock is ticking until you’ve gotta throw them away. A high-quality jersey with a flower pattern, on the other hand, will last for years. This special edition women’s floral model from Velocio is not only super-flattering, but it’s made of a lightweight, compressive polyester-elastane blend that feels great against your skin. The jersey is available in two beautiful colors.

Benno eJoy

You’ll definitely be her favorite kid after this one. The aluminum, step-through eJoy is as good looking as it is utilitarian. With 26-inch wheels, full fenders, a Shimano Alivio nine-speed drivetrain and disc brakes, a wheelbase similar to the average townie, and a big, comfy seat, it has the appearance of a practical everyday cruiser. But its oversize rear rack, silent Bosch Active Line motor, heavy-duty head tube with front-tray mounts (the tray is an add-on), integrated Supernova E3 lights, and roll-over-anything balloon tires let her leave the car at home to run errands. It’s one of the quietest, most convenient, most stylish, and easy-to-operate e-bikes available.


Pedro’s Bike Lust Polish

Help her keep her bike clean and shiny with this biodegradable formula that will polish and protect her frame. Its protective sheen will also make it easy to wipe off mud and grime in the future.

Backslash Fit Smart Yoga Mat

This thick, self-rolling yoga mat will make her cross-training workouts and post-ride recovery stretches easier and more comfortable.

Swiftwick Pursuit Four Socks

Everyone loves new socks, and we especially like Swiftwick’s moisture-wicking Merino wool Pursuit socks for everyday rides.

The Good Patch CBD Set

This Mother’s Day set of CBD patches is specifically designed to help mom destress and relax, including four “Awake” and “Rescue” patches to wake up and keep going through her rides, as well as one “Nite Nite” and one “Be Calm” patch to unwind after a long day. Plus, this 10-patch set is currently $18 off through Mother’s Day.

Baleaf Cycling Skort

Does she ride a lot from place to place in casual clothes? Gift Mom this flattering and functional skort. Its integrated padded liner offers the same anti-chafe benefits while looking much more casual than spandex shorts. Two large side pockets for storage (hidden on the shorts) and a wide waistband will make it part of her go-to riding outfit.

Peak Design Everyday Totepack

She may already have all of the tote bags she needs, but this two-in-one tote and backpack will trump all the rest. Though its not a cycling-specific commuter bag, its nylon shell is weatherproof with padded straps, padded laptop and tablet sleeves, and versatile interior storage dividers that will keep any fragile cargo protected even on rough rides.

The Handmade Cyclist Milan-San Remo Art Print

Dedicated to some of the hardest one-day races in cycling, these cycling art prints look timeless and inspiring in any room.
