The most fabulous cycling gifts for Mother’s Day

The most fabulous cycling gifts for Mother’s Day  

Flowers, chocolates, cycling socks…..that’s our checklist for Mother’s Day 2017! This special day is just around the corner and if your mum is cycling mad like us, here are some great gifts to impress her this year.

Some mums were made to excel on wheels. And we’re not just talking about steering supermarket shopping trolleys to the checkout in record time. Or manoeuvring pushchairs through a busy crowd whilst averting toddler tantrums. (Although mums are amazing at that too.)

We’re talking about pushing PBs and exploring the great outdoors in the saddle! If your mum loves her bike more than anything else (other than you, of course!) make sure you get her something special to show how much you support her favourite pastime.

Cycling, like any other sport, is great for both physical and mental health; so it’s a hobby that we should fully encourage in our parents, no matter their age.

Here are some fabulous cycling gifts for the cycling-mad mum. Whether she’s a city cycler, or a pro rider, these presents will definitely put a smile on her face.

Cycling Socks

High tech cycling socks make a great gift – because you can never have too many pairs! Some of the top brands tried and tested by cyclists include ashmei, Pongo, Rapha, Maap, dhb, Liv, Morvelo, Castelli, and DeFeet.

Bike GPS

Having a bike GPS can really enhance a rider’s experience, providing handy course info and useful health stats to help with self-improvement. Some of the best GPS devices in 2017 so far are the Garmin Edge 520, the Wahoo Elemnt Bolt, the Lezyne Enhanced Super GPS, the Garmin Edge 1000, and the Mio Cyclo505HC. Devices can range from around £80 to over £400 so there’s one to suit every budget. Also when she’s not using it, you can borrow it! (so long as you return it)

Bicycle Bell

Safety first, mum! Bicycle bells are not only fun, retro and ever-so-adorable (just like mother), but they can keep her safe on the roads, too. It’s an ideal Mother’s Day gift for city riders and traffic hour commuters. Some of our favourites are the Spurcycle Bell, the Trigger Bell, the classic Lion Bell, the Bobbin Bell, and the battery powered Hornit – all worth checking out if you’re hitting the shops before the weekend.

High Performance Jacket

If you want to gift your mum with a comfortable, durable and high tech jacket that will protect against the elements – come wind, rain or shine – then why not invest in some stylish outerwear from ashmei? The Ultimate Softshell Jacket is a fantastic all-rounder, perfect for triathlon-worthy supermums who love to run, walk and cycle.

Bike Maintenance Class

Looking after mums alternative baby (yes her bike) is something that everyone should learn, and there’s nothing better than a bike maintenance class to ensure that her pride and joy rolls smoothly and efficiently. Talk to your local cycle shop to see if they run one. Fixing those gears, punctures and safety checks will be a doddle.

New Bike for Mum

So she’s brought you up, wiped parts of your body as a baby (however much you try to deny it!), been there for you when you were not well, stressed out, in love, out of love, paid for your driving lessons and just been your bedrock – so how about splashing the cash on a lovely new Trek Silque bike for her. Can’t afford the bike? Then get her a brochure and show her what you would have got her if you could afford it!

Professional Coaching

We’ve teamed up with Rowe & King to provide The Collective Group Ride Experience, a 5-star dream holiday and professional coaching week all rolled into one. For serious cycling mums, this is the ultimate Mother’s Day treat!

Don’t miss our exclusive coaching offers – a great way to surprise your mum with sun, sea and cycle! Oh, and did we mention the luxury spa? Many of our hotels come with one so she’ll be able to wind down in style. Sure beats a box of Quality Streets and offering to do the washing up!
