If one of the special ladies in your life is an avid bike commuter, you can speak right to her favorite interests with a bike-themed gift during the holiday season. Women cyclists love nothing better than gifts that help make their favorite mode of transportation more versatile, so here’s a few great bike gifts for your favorite gal, both from us and from our favorites!

The Propper Topper:
Wearing a helmet doesn’t stop women cyclists from expressing their personal style. There are plenty of functional helmets that also look great. We absolutely love this sparkly helmet from Nutcase. Not only is it lightweight, but it also has reflective details and Nutcase's signature magnetic buckle. $69.99 at Nutcase Helmets.
Six Corners Handlebar Bag:
Handlebar bags aren’t exactly a new concept, but it can be hard for style conscious women cyclists to find an option somewhere between “flower-covered basket” and “could be athletic gear for the Olympics.” That’s where our spacious but petite Six Corners handlebar bag comes into play! With enough room for essentials, the bag clips easily onto any handlebars and includes a strap for converting it into a cross-body tote. $40 at pocampo.com.
Want to go a step further? Our Bike & Be Free gift basket includes the Six Corners handlebar bag in a choice of awesome, weatherproof fabrics, a shiny reflective pin, and a refueling bar of Theo organic dark chocolate! Both Po Campo and Theo Chocolates help provide bikes to schoolgirls in Africa (future women cyclists!) through World Bicycle Relief. $49.99 at pocampo.com.
Help the women cyclists in your life become the happy hour heroes with this fantastic beverage carrier that Velcros on right under her crossbar. In a cheery orange hue and with soft-sided, durable construction, the six-pack beverage holder is perfect for chilled water, fresh squeezed juices, or sips of any sort. It also means you can be a little more eco-friendly by biking to your next BBQ while still observing BYOB- but remember, biking and alcohol do not mix! $55 at firebox.com.
Logan Bike Trunk Bag:
Serious women cyclists may need to carry her home on her ride if she uses her bike for all-day transportation. Give her room to fit her gym clothes, wallet, towel, cosmetics, and more with the gorgeous convertible Logan Bike Trunk Bag. This sturdy bag, which features weatherproof fabrics and a contrast interior, even features an attached strap that turns it into a shoulder bag. When needed for transport, the Logan snaps onto the rear rack of any standard bike, safe and secure! $85 at pocampo.com.
Vespertine Riding Dress:
If your biking friend has a little pizzazz in her style, she’ll flip for this reflective plaid dress from Vespertine. Made of wicking fabric for ultimate breathability, the dress also has reflective buttons on the collar and cuffs and deep side pockets. $226 at Vespertine NYC and designed by one of the best dressed women cyclists in town.
Wrap it in Style
Whatever you end up buying your bike friends this holiday, give a nod to their favorite past-time with gift bags, wrapping paper and greeting cards adorned with an adorable wintery bike print. It's a bag women cyclists will appreciate. $2.95+ at Paper Source.
