Mother’s Day and flowers go hand-in-hand, but if you ask us bike accessories and parts look better and last longer!
Mother’s Day is an awesome chance to spend a day with the family; maybe start it with a group ride before finishing up for a brekkie out in the sun (fingers crossed Autumn is good to mums this year).
If you’re looking for something to show mum how awesome she is, or if you’re a mum who deserves a little something for being so awesome, these terrific ideas will get you off on the winning track!
Audrey Hepburn style
Commuter bikes are big business these days and no wonder – they’re a terrific way to get around urban areas without worrying about congested traffic and parking nightmares. There are plenty of options out there and we love a bit of retro edge, like this Beach Cruiser, which is a mother’s day bargain for $335. Add some flowers in the basket and you’ll be scoring major brownie points.
Vintage Va Va Voom
Another option for cruising around town are these terrific Hollandia vintage bikes, available in Black, Mint or Red. Calliper brakes, 7-speed, steel luggage carrier, double sprung comfort saddle; this bike is going to fit right in at the local café, market, or at school drop-offs and pick-ups.
For sure there are female cyclists who would run a mile from any shade of pink; but there are plenty of others who can’t get enough of it! This Reid vintage bike in frosted pink is sure to become a favourite. With 6-speeds, a front basket, mud guards, and white wall tyres we think this would be a winning mother’s day prezzie.
These shoes are made for riding
If mum’s just got interested in riding and the kids are looking to get her something she’ll really appreciate, these entry level riding shoes from Shimano are going to hit all the right notes. Bright white, triple strap closure, SPD-SL, SPD and Look cleat compatible; tick, tick, tick.
Boo hoo – winter is on its way. That won’t be stopping serious cycling mums out there, so layers like these nifty Specialized arm warmers are sure to go down a treat. And there’s nothing like a store renovation inside and out to prompt extra red-hot prices. $29? Try to get an amazing bunch of blooms for that price!
Once the chill sets in solidly, there’s no escaping all the extra layers needed for a quality ride. This Netti jacket is unisex, has reflective logos and seam sealed underarm zippers for additional venting.
Garmin - Get On It
Whether mum is racing against the clock or just likes to keep an eye on the time when out on the bike, the Garmin Sports Watch is going to have all bases covered. It computes calorie burning, speed, pace, distance, and feeds it all wirelessly. Form and function packs a punch!
Look After the Noggin
If mum’s helmet is looking a little worse for wear then it’s definitely time for an upgrade – this is one bike accessory that just has to be in tip-top order at all times. Lazer has plenty of options that will look after all shapes and sizes and keep mum looking great and feeling safe.
Happy mother’s day!
