Does dad like to bike? Well then, why not get him something he’ll use AND love this Father’s Day! Check out our curated list of cycling gear and bike gift ideas, pick out that perfect something for your pops, and then plan a bike ride to celebrate your one and only Dad. And… if Dad isn’t a cyclist, check out our recommended longboards included in our list that are sure to get him cruising!
If Dad likes to keep it relaxed while shredding singletrack on his mountain bike — this is the look for him. The Fox Ranger Jersey features TruDrifabrics to keep him cool when he hits the trails and the matching ultralight Fox Ranger Lite Shorts are designed for maximum comfort while boasting a casual style. Complete the outfit with the versatile and stylish Fox Ranger Gel Gloves, the protective Fox Speedframe MIPS Helmet (comes in multiple fun colors!), and the Specialized Recon 2.0 Mountain Bike Shoes made with body-geometry sole and footbed to keep him pedaling with comfort and power!
Your Dad will look sharp and feel ready to hit the road sporting this outfit. Start off with one of our ERIK’S Exclusive State Nostalgia Cycling Jerseys (available in a variety of states where ERIK’S shops are located) — always a hit with those that love to represent! For his lower half, he’ll be feeling your love with the super comfortable Specialized RBX Bib Shorts that offer an ultimate fit for anybody. Next up, make sure his head is protected with the Specialized Propero III MIPS ANGi Helmet. It offers a race-inspired design, an incredible fit, and superior technology like MIPS and ANGI. Last keep his hands and feet happy with the Specialized Body Geometry Dual-Gel Gloves and the Specialized Torch 2.0 Road Shoes — both featuring Specialized Body Geometry designs to offer unparalleled comfort and fit.
Whether your Dad has one bike or five the Steadyrack Fender Bike Storage Rack is geniously designed and will make efficient use of his coveted garage or basement space.
Help your Pops ride connected! The Sena PI Universal Communication System will transform his current helmet into a bluetooth intercom device so he can keep the conversation going (hands-free) with his ride buddies or the whole family no problem.
The Specialized Rockhopper Sport 29er Hardtail Mountain Bike comes equipped with Tektro hydraulic disc brakes, Altus shifting from Shimano, and an SR SunTour XCM fork that’s built to hustle. It packs a punch without putting a deep dent in your wallet — the perfect ride for the weekend mountain biker who wants a solid bike that will deliver on the dirt.
Not only will Dad look good on the super stylish Specialized Aethos Comp AXS Road Bike, but he’ll also be super fast too! Featuring the lightest frame out there, this bike was made to offer the perfect ride. If your Dad is known for spending hours in the saddle… the Aethos definitely has his name all over it!
The Specialized Como 3.0 Step Thru Electric Bike brings the fun AND the comfort! Help Dad maintain (or increase) his activity levels, haul heavy loads with ease, and simply find extra enjoyment while he bikes! The Como 3.0 delivers it all with some extra pedal power!
The Specialized Turbo Como 3.0 650b Electric Bike is the ultimate city bike. If Dad prefers two-wheels over four, he’ll be impressed with the integrated Specialized 1.2 E motor and the turbo power it provides him on the uphills and long commutes with groceries or kids in tow.
If Dad likes to sit back and enjoy the scenery on his easy-going rides the Raleigh Venture 2 Step Thru Comfort Bike will have him smiling ear-to-ear. With an upright, yet laid-back rider position, large tires, and the no-slip grip pedals… this bike basically begs you to take it out for a truly relaxing cruise.
Longboards are a great option for any newer skater or someone getting back into it. The wider and longer board and the softer wheels makes it much easier to keep balance so you can find your flow. Gift Dad the Globe Blazer Longboard (black) or the Globe Surf Glass Longboard (green) and he’ll feel like a kid again cruising the neighborhood streets in style.
Another awesome longboard choice — the Joyride Tiger Pattern Longboard will help Dad carve, push, pump and bomb those hills! It’s the perfect board to help him skate just like he does in his dreams!
ERIK’S Gift Cards never disappoint. With one of these babies in his back pocket (sold in any amount), Dad can take his time geeking out at his local ERIK’S shop or online getting exactly what he wants most!
We hope this list inspires you to truly celebrate your Dad this Father’s Day. Give your bike-loving pops something he’ll love that will bring more fun and joy into his life!
