Father’s Day Gift Ideas for the Bicycle Mad Dad

Gift ideas for your dad that you'll really want for yourself

The celebration of fathers is soon upon us, and what better way to show them our love and appreciation than with cycling gifts. This year, Father’s Day is on Sunday June 18th so there’s plenty of time left to grab him some treats.

Your dad may be your biggest hero, your reason for cycling, or even just your biggest supporter. Let’s face it, we wouldn’t be here without them.

So we’ve rounded up our favourite selection of Father’s Day gifts for the cycling mad Dad.

Titanium Bolts

Bling up your Dad’s bike with some anodised Titanium bolts for his bike. Titanium bolts are strong, and lightweight which make them perfect for the weight-conscious rider – #BikeDiet. So not only do they look great for accessorising with your Dad’s steed, but they shave off those crucial grams too.

There’s a whole variety of sizes available on the TiBike website with prices starting from just a few pounds. It’s not just bolts either, TiBike offer washers and nuts too! More information can be found here.

Spiral Frame Protectors

They may not seem like much, but these small silicone frame protectors help reduce the wear on your bike’s paint job caused by rubbing cables.

British manufacturer, Fibrax, provide a cheaper and easier alternative to helicopter tape. These spiral casings can be wrapped around any brake and gear cable where abrasion can occur.

They’re available in an assortment of colours here for £5.50 (pack of six).

100 Greatest Cycling Climbs

Go on, give him something to sweat over.

Saddle Mount Race Strap

Designed in the US, these Race Straps from Backcountry Research are constructed with mulitple velcro points, reflective detailing, hard-wearing fabric and they’re dropper post compatible. Simply loop through the rails of your saddle and fasten – Voila!
