It’s almost Father’s Day and we have some fantastic gift ideas that you can surprise your Dad with this year.
There’s something to suit all types of Cycling Dad and all pocket sizes!
Never be without a bottle opener again. Made with recycled bike chain, this simple bike twist on a standard keyring will make any cycling dad smile this Father’s Day. This handy little gift can be ordered from cyclegeezer.com
Inject some colour into Dad’s wheels with these rainbow valve caps from KOM ltd. They will fit
any presta valve and even double up as a valve core removal tool!
Coffee and tea drinkers rejoice! This nifty travel mug holder from Portland Design Works comes in 2 clamp sizes to fit securely to most flat and riser handlebars.
You can order this great gadget fromAmazonand help your Dad enjoy his morning coffee on the move.
Maybe not totally bike related….
But for Eco Dad’s who like recycling, gardening and cycling then why not treat them to a unique plant pot produced from used tyres.
Order yours here and get planting!
These colourful and cheeky Mr Monkey Socks are available in both running and cycling styles.
They don’t just look great on but are partnered with 3 amazing charities supporting people living with Multiple Sclerosis too – MS Society, MS Trust and MS-UK.
Add a burst of colour to your Dad’s sock drawer this year and grab some Mr Monkey Socks!
Add some fun into your dad’s leisurewear with some bike inspired T-shirts like this one from Endurance Conspiracy at Sigma Sports. Or, if cycling is in your Dad’s DNA then this super comfortable Cycology T-Shirt printed using water based inks and made from 100% cotton will make the perfect gift.
Why not treat your dad to one of Paul Smith’s limited edition cycling caps this year.
Inspired by his lifelong love of cycling this is the first collaboration between Paul Smith and renowned Italian Bicycle manufacturing company, Cinelli.
Sometimes the simple ideas are the best ones!

You could even print your photo in a retro - vintage style like these Photobox.
If Dad likes a glass of wine then how about this Bicycle Wine Holder fromNot On The High Street?
It’s made in Britain from real leather and is the perfect way to carry a bottle of wine wherever you go - party, park or home.
We just don’t recommend cycling after the wine has been enjoyed!
With reflective turn ups on both legs, stretch Cordura denim and reinforced areas, a pair of cycling jeans from Resolute Baywill ensure maximum comfort for Dad when riding around town.
Alternatively, add a little style to Dad’s wardrobe this Father’s Day.
A lightweight flannel shirt like this Fox Racing shirt is great for casual weekend family rides.
These Isadore organic cotton, water repellent trainers have an eco rubber sole made from natural rubber, vulcanized without using harmful chemicals.
The goal was to create a hybrid between casual and cycling gear, we think they’ve smashed it with these cool trainers and are pretty sure your Dad will too!
We hope there is something here that your Dad would love to receive this Father’s Day. But if you are feeling creative here’s one more idea - An upcycled tyre belt!
If you have a little time and there is someone to help you with cutting and punching holes then why not have a crack at turning an old tyre into a new belt!
All you need is a tyre, an old belt (with buckle), a rotary punch, a hammer and some nails.
Just follow these 8 simple steps and your dad will be sporting a sustainable, unique gift this year.
