We’ve covered everything from kid-specific helmets to fancy clothing and accessories, as well as technologies and flair to make you select the best. But, it does not end there; we inform you why a bike or bike accessory gift could be the best idea compared to others that everyone else thinks.

Why gifting families with bikes and bike accessories is a good idea

When it comes to giving gifts, there are so many options out there, and one quickly has their minds swimming in the sea of ideas.

Take it from us (*self-proclaimed bike-nerds*), a bike is definitely the type of gift you will be remembered for, for the longest time memories can allow.

They are big enough to always stay noticed, last longer, and are a utilitarian gift as far as healthy living is concerned!

Bikes are fun! And the great thing is that no matter a person’s skill level, there is always something for a person of any age.

Now, if there’s something else a biking family will appreciate, it’s a good bike accessory to go with their bikes. You can never have too much of that as the options are far too many.

Let’s look at the best way to determine which gift a cycling family desires or needs.

How to determine the best gifts to give a cycling family or Kid

Gifting people isn’t as hard as people pen it out to be. And the same logic applies when it comes to gifting a cycling family. You want to use either of these options:

1. Ask them

What are some of the things that they have on their wish list?

You’d be surprised by how intuitive people are with their wants. So, go for it!

2. Listen Keenly

People say many things without really saying it, and you have to have a keen ear to read between the lines and determine what things a person longs for or would benefit from.

As parents who want to gift their kids, you can jog their minds by initiating a conversation about bikes and cleverly taking in information from their stories.

3. Be on the lookout

Next to a keen ear, a keen eye will definitely come in handy when it comes to determining what a person could need. There a key must-haves for cycling families, such as protective gear. If you notice that the person you want to gift lacks a necessity, then there’s your opportunity to surprise them.

4. Get ideas from movies and books

There’s a lot of digital and physical material where you can borrow ideas. For instance, movies highlight certain bike accessories, while books on cycling have a pretty straightforward approach to its accompaniments.

Is it good to get a hint from a family one intends to gift?

Well, we already jumped the gun and said that there’s no harm in asking openly or subtly for what kind of gift a person would like. There’s nothing wrong with this approach to gifting. If anything, you’re better safe than sorry.

A Comprehensive Gift Guide for Kids and Parents who Love Cycling

Read this guide on the best gift ideas for families and kids that love cycling with all that in mind. In addition, we have sampled some of the best products for cycling kids and parents.

In place of training wheels, Balance bikes are changing the world of riding. Children instantly learn how to balance a bike, which is the fundamental skill of riding. A few of our favorites include:

Balance Bikes

Schwinn Koen Balance Bike

The Schwinn Koen balance bike is the first of many boys’ bikes from the same line. This 12-inch balance bike is everything that a little boy needs to get introduced to the world of cycling. Throughout the sequence (12, 14, 16, 18, and 20-inch bikes), the same SmartStart design is utilized to ensure the bike has the perfect proportions to fit kids' size, rather than just having an adult bike design with smaller measurements to fit young riders. This model also comes with an extended seat post to elongate when the little shredder stays with the bike..

Strider-12 Sport Balance Bike

This balance bike’s 12’s sturdy frame, extended seat post, narrow padded seat, and mini grips are the reason why it is loved by many.

The Strider Sport is one of the three bike models (the others being the Strider Classic and the Pro). While the other two feature a few advanced features, the Strider Sport is unanimously the most popular choice in the streets as it is the most budget-friendly option.

Schwinn Elm Girls Bike

Paragraphs and descriptions here.

Designed for little girls, the Schwinn Elm’s purple, pink and teal colors perfectly match girls’ bubbly personalities. This balance bike features an adjustable padded seat, durable steel frame, cushioned grips, EVA foam tires as well as a steering limiter, so kids are comfortable and safe as they stride along.

Going up to 20-inch size, this line of girls’ bikes will serve girls as they start their biking journey and as they grow older.

GOMO Balance Bike

The GOMO balance bike is all about comfort. Seeing as it features a footrest where little feet can rest instead of hanging awkwardly as kids glide along makes it one of our favorite balance bikes.

This push bike’s slim and light design is so easy for kids to drag around. We love that it is lightweight yet strong enough to withstand any harsh treatment.

Retrospec Cub Kids' Balance Bike

With a high-quality kid-friendly design featuring a low step-through frame, adjustable seat tube, and handlebars, this push bike is designed to outlast rough handing and the young ones' growth spurts.

And if you care about looks, then Retrospec Cub’s cool raspy design will definitely excite you.

Bike Storage Solutions

Sure, bikes are great. But they can take up so much space if not put in order. So to help cycling families reclaim their garage space, you can gift them with these garage and house bike storage racks and a detailed guide on the dos and don’ts of bike storage.

Coleman ComfortSmart Portable Camping Cot

This wall-mounted bike rack is one of the best ways to make the most out of your storage space. The cool thing about this Classic rack is that it stores vertically to save floor space, swivels 180 degrees to either the left or right and saves on more space.

There’s no need to lift the bike; stand it on its back wheel and slide it onto the rack. Easy peasy, even for kids!

Rubbermaid FastTrack Garage Bike Storage System

The Rubbermaid FastTrack garage storage system ups any garage storage game. Its 5-in-1 system comprising of a rail and hook kit ensures bikes remain secure.

We love the versatility of this storage system; you can literally attach the multi-purpose hook onto the rail and store any item. From bags to wires to bikes, you name it!

StoreYourBoard Bike Storage Rack

This bike rack is an excellent alternative for families who love to ride! The StoreYourBoard mounts onto the wall and holds up to 5 bicycles. Because the placement is done vertically, this rack ranks as a great bike storage solution for those who are low on garage space.

As for fear of collapsing from the weight of the bikes, well, this is a heavy-duty rack made to hold up to 200 pounds!

Simple Houseware 5 Bike Bicycle Floor Parking

This Simple Houseware 5 bike stand is all about indoor organization! It’s a floor-mounted bike parking rack that adjusts by extending the compartments and, in turn, accommodating one to five bikes as needed.

Racor - PBS-2R Garage Bike Stand

The Racor PBS-2R floor rack holds two bikes.

This rack stands in place to avoid floor damage and hold the bikes firmly in place by securing the front, bottom, and sides of the wheel.

The great thing about it is that it is entirely customizable to store the bikes facing opposite directions or the same direction.

Bike Car Racks

Bikes are made for the outdoors. So it goes without saying that there’s a need for a system that can quickly and safely transport bikes from one place/ state or trail to the next one.

Allen Sports 4-Bike Hitch Racks

Allen Sports offer pocket-friendly bike racks for people looking to transport their bikes for outdoor adventures. The best aspect of this solution is how securely it holds bikes. With the use of a hitch, the rack is attached to the car’s rear end. The hitch installation is tool-free and automatic. Just lock the rack in place on the car, secure the bike(s) with the rubber straps, and you’ll be good to go.

Hollywood Racks Express Trunk Mounted Bike Rack

The Hollywood Racks Express Truck-mounted bike rack is another game-changer. This bike rack can hold up to 3 bikes. It attaches to the car's trunk, and the bikes remain in place thanks to the rack’s rubber cradles and straps. We especially love that it folds flat for easy storage when not in use.

This rack from Allen Sports is designed with top, bottom, and side straps that hook onto the car’s trunk in place of a hitch. In addition, it features a dual-compound cradle and rubber straps that hold the bikes in place to safely transport bikes.

With this one, the versatility is what sells it. The rack can be attached to a great many more cars in comparison to other car racks.

This easy-to-assemble rack uses a sturdy steel hitch to load the bikes and secures them with individual tie-down straps. With the included adapter, the bike wobble during the transportation is done away with.

It also conveniently folds down for easy storage.

Bike Merchandise

Bike Chain Bottle Opener

Does it get any better than a bike-themed bottle opener to go with other bike-specific items for people who love to ride? This opener uses recycled bike chains and a sturdy aluminum top that looks great and functions even better!  Great to show off at parties and biking trips.

Woom Personalized Name Sticker

Is your kid cycling to school? If so, the chances are that they might lose it or confuse it for another. In the world of professional cycling, engraved names of sponsors and respective cyclists are a big deal. When you get your kid a personalized feel of their bike, you make them own it and yearn to ride it every time. It also helps distinguish your kids’ bikes from other kids’ bikes, making it easy to spot the bike in the park.

4. Kids' Pedal Bikes

Once kids are off their balance bikes, it’s automatic that they’ll want to jump on a pedal bike for more of the thrill. For a more in-depth insight into the best Kids’ pedal bikes for kids of different ages and sizes, we’ve reviewed the best of the best pedal bikes out there. But for now, consider top-choices:

RoyalBaby Kids Bike

This kid’s bike brand hits all the right spots as it purely designs bikes for kids.

This RoyalBaby kids’ bike is a 14-inch bike that features pneumatic 2.4-inch wide rubber tires with customized RoyalBaby tread for ultimate traction and style.

Our favorite aspect is that it has both a front caliper brake and a rear coaster brake to deliver accurate stopping power and train kids for v-brake-only pedal bikes as they get older.

Schwinn Koen Boys Bike

The Schwinn Koen is a beast when it comes to boys' bikes. This BMX-style bike’s sturdy steel frame can withstand any type of abuse.  It also features the combination of v-brakes and coaster brakes to protect young riders from a collision in case they end up riding at high speeds.

Designed with the SmartStart design that entails smaller grips, lighter frames, and narrower q-factors to fit the proportions of young riders more accurately, it’s a winner in our books.

Bike Accessories

Other than accidental collisions, the biggest risk to riding is the probability of dehydration from extended periods of riding without water. And that is why a water bottle is a brilliant, even fundamental, bike accessory.

Water Bottles

Ensuring that kids are hydrated on a ride is essential. Getting them water bottles makes them independent and strategic. It also limits disturbances when on family bike rides or tours

Contigo Autoseal Chill water bottle

This stainless steel water bottle from Contigo will help quench thirst during those hot summer rides.

We love that it’s insulated, so the liquid/ water remains cold, protects the water from debris with an Autoseal button, and comes with its open carrying handle.

Riders will love the wide variety of fun and bright colors that they can choose from.

CamelBak Podium Chill Bike Water Bottle

Cyclists love the CamelBak podium chill water bottle for its ease of use. It’s easy to squeeze, has a high flow rate of fluids, and seals automatically between sips to keep dirt out.

The graphics on this one are extraordinary! It’s easy to attach it to the bike based on one’s personal style.

There is nothing like the soothing quench of a cold drink after a long ride that the Polar Bottle insulated water bottle offers. The best feature of this water bottle is its innovative cap design, which allows the nozzle to be taken off for easy cleaning.

The bottle also squeezes easily to keep cyclists refreshed and has carrying handles for easy carriage.

Helmets

When it comes to bike safety measures, bike helmets are a must-have. Of course, a lot goes into play when looking for the most suitable, but the best kids’ helmets should have the right padding, adjustment system, and appropriate material to withstand crashes.

If there’s anything that the Schwinn Thrasher promises, it’s that it is very lightweight. It weighs and an outstanding 0.6 pounds, which is great as the heaviest helmets are the most uncomfortable and the most likely to distract riders and cause accidents.

Besides, it has a visor to reduce the sun’s glare and 20 vents to keep the rider’s head cool.

As we said, there’s something for everyone.

The impact resistance of this helmet is unlike most that we’ve come across in the market. And that is what sells it. Again, it’s simply designed but appropriately functional.

Raskullz Super Unicorn Kids' Helmet

Spotting a 3D unicorn design, kids love this helmet so much they actually forget they are wearing it for protective services.
