Last Minute Cycling Gifts for Father’s Day

June 18, 2020

Father’s Day is Sunday, June 21. That’s just 3 days from now.

If you haven’t found the perfect gift for your cycling Dad, don’t panic. We’ve got you covered with gift ideas. From upgrading your Dad’s man cave to purchasing spin worthy gifts, you’ll be sure to find what you need at Peak Cycles Bicycle Shop. Read on.

New bike
For those going all out for their cycling Dad, nothing beats a new bike! You might think, he already has one – maybe two- or even three bikes…how could he need another? Truth is, you can’t ever have enough bikes. Consider a new road bicycle or mountain bike for your Dad.  Even better, opt for a fat bike or try an electric bike!

Bike parts
A no brainer for Father’s day is bike parts! Think new drivetrain parts, brakes, saddle, and wheelset.  Or, check out our post, Father’s Day Gift Guide for Cyclists, Road Bikers, and Mountain Bikers for more ideas.

Cycling accessories
There are so many options and choices available if you opt to gift your Dad cycling accessories. Easy picks include:
Tubes: This is one gift you absolutely positively will get used. Make sure you get the right size of tube. If you aren’t sure, stop in the Peaks Cycling Store and ask one of our friendly staff to help you. Or, visit us online at bikeparts.com
A good bottle: Every cyclist has a ton of bottles, but that’s not the same as having good bottles. Buy a good bottle and stuff it with other goodies.
Socks: Did you know Dad likes to wear their cycling socks even when he isn’t riding?  Why? Because they are so comfortable.  Pick out a pair of socks you like for your Dad and maybe even get a pair for yourself!
Tires: Treat yourself to Dad to some new rubber! We have a ton of tires for road and mountain bikes.

Cycling apparel
What do you get a Dad that has everything? Clothes! You can’t have too many jerseys, shorts, tights, jacket, sunglasses, and cycling shoes!  Cycling apparel is much better than just getting another tie!

Gift certificates
Gift certificates can be used for purchasing bike parts and cycling accessories.  Also consider a variety of gift certificates, as in, those to Starbucks for after ride coffee.  Or, even a trial membership for yoga.  If your cycling Dad complains of tight muscles, yoga helps ease the tightness, creating core strength, and aligning the spine.

Bonus gift – Ride with your Dad
Riding together with your Dad on Father’s day could be one of his most favorite and memorable shared activities to do.  Consider selecting one of the 20 Colorado Front Range Bucket List Rides or keep it local and ride some of the best mountain bike trails Golden, Colorado has to offer.

Make your Father’s Day memorable!  Gift him with bike parts and cycling accessories that tap into his cycling passion.  Happy Father’s Day!


Upgrade The Man Cave – Father’s Day Gift Guide for Cycling Dads

June 11, 2020

While this year’s Father’s Day proves to be strikingly different than previous years due to safer at home orders and social distancing, that doesn’t mean you can’t spoil your favorite cycling dad with bike-related gifts for Father’s Day.  

No doubt, events, and races have been put on hold, but bike riding isn’t!  

This year, gift your cycling Dad with bike parts and tools to keep his fleet of bikes rolling!

For the DIY bike maintenance Dad, boost your Dad’s talent for bike maintenance by gifting him with a work stand and the right bike maintenance tools.  Our favorite work stands are the Feedback Sports work stands. You can choose between the Classic, Sports, or Pro-Elite models and you can’t go wrong with any of them.  Pair the work stand with a bike parts tool kit. Options to consider are Feedback Sports Ride Prep Toolkit which is great pre and post-ride bike maintenance. Or, step it up and go for the Feedback Sports Team Edition Tool Kit. And don’t forget much-needed basics like bike lube! If you’re not sure which bike chain lubrication to get, check out our post Dry Pavement, Sloppy Slush and A Muddy Trail: Which Chain Lube Works Best? for suggestions.

 
Add some room to your Dad’s man cave by gifting him with bike storage options. Whether your Dad has one bike or several bikes, bike storage options like the Velo Wall Rack or the Velo Hinge Pivoting Wall Hook are innovative and affordable options for creating more space in the garage. 
 
Top it all off with a favorite pump at Peak Cycles, the Specialized Air Tool Pro is full metal construction that is durable and stylish. This will work great for road and mountain bikes and your Dad will appreciate it for years to come.
