Cycling Gifts For Women: Useful and Delightful Ideas For All Budgets

Need a gift for a woman who loves bikes? There are a lot of us out there! Mountain bikers, roadies, bikepackers, commuters… We come in all forms, but one thing we have in common: we absolutely love riding our bikes for pleasure, competition, health, transportation, or all of the above.

If you’re in need of cycling gift ideas for her, you’ve come to the right place. As a bike-loving lady myself I’ve designed this list to include a wide range: from practical to delightful, road to dirt, casual to competitive, and everything in-between.

Though some items in this list are specifically designed for women, many are unisex items that any cyclist would enjoy. Women and men actually aren’t that different when it comes to cycling, believe it or not. But I’m excited to compile this list of gifts for female cyclists specifically, since we’re often underrepresented in the bike world.

If your favorite lady cyclist is into self-supported multiday rides, check out my list of Gifts for Bikepackers for a ton of additional ideas.
