Friday Finds for Father's Day

Have you already decided on a gift for the cycling Dad in your life? If not, here is a list of great gifts for your pedaling pop:
  1. Betabrand's Bike to Work Shorts ($98) in Gray or Khaki. John got a pair for his birthday and what I like about it is the gusseted crotch for in saddle comfort, the back pocket has zippers to keep its contents secure, and the built in reflectors including a deployable reflective flag tucked inside the left back pocket.

  2. Price too steep? Upload a photo on their website to get a 10% discount and if you have a photo of yourself wearing a product, upload a photo as a model citizen for 20% discount.

  3. Dot&Bo Ibu and Bapak Model Bikes - Set of 2 ($89.99). These die cast models of the Ibu and Bapak bikes are designed to scale with treaded tires and rotating pedals and chains. Give him something for his desk when he cannot be outside riding his bike!
  4. Bandbox Ascot Tweed Cap Helmet Cover ($54). Bandbox makes a helmet system with a nice selection of interchangeable helmet covers so your Dad can express his personal style and taste while pedaling around town. He will need the Bandbox bicycle helmet, if he does not already have one.
    Yakkay is another stylish bicycle helmet and cover option. A cover is 40 euros or about $55. Again a compatible helmet that the cover fits over is required.
  5. Not enough time to order your Dad a gift? Remember your local bike shop!!

    That's where I got my urban cycling helmet - the Giro Reverb.

  6. If your Dad likes to hang his helmet on his bike, then you can get him Yakkay's Safe One. With Safe One your pop can lock his helmet to his bike so he don't need to carry it when he is finished biking but will keep his helmet safe and dry. 
Or skip spending cash and take your Dad out for a memorial bike ride around the neighborhood! Be sure to take photos for keepsake of Father's Day.

I would love to hear what you're getting your daddy-o or if you are a cycling father yourself, what product(s) you would like for Father's Day!
