To help you find that perfect gift, we’ve put together our ultimate gift guide for her. Keep reading to find the perfect present for your Mum this Mother’s Day.
Treat her to her dream bike!
There’s no better way to show your appreciation for your favourite lady than with one of our amazing women’s bikes. From road bikes to classic Dutch-styles and mountain bikes to hybrids, we’ve got something for all types of cyclists.
If she’s into cycling for fitness, perhaps she’d like to try one of our brilliant women’s road bikes. We’ve got a great selection in a wide range of colours with some of the newest features on the market.
If your Mum prefers cycling for leisure, we’d recommend a classic Dutch-style bike! Not only do they look amazing with their attractive, traditional-style frame, but they provide a smooth and effortless ride.
Finally, if she’s a fan of cycling to work, our range of both folding and electric bikes might be a winner! Although the more practical option, this could be a great investment that, as a daily cyclist, she would appreciate.
For more information about the different types of bikes we offer and who they’re most suited to, have a read through our blog post, “How to choose your next bike”.
Safety first: Helmet
Riding any bike without a helmet is strongly discouraged, no matter what level of experience. A helmet could be the difference between a few scrapes and a fatal injury. It’s always better to be safe than sorry!
Contrary to popular belief, a helmet doesn’t have to be uncomfortable or even look bad. We’ve got a great range of helmets both in-store and online at the moment in an array of styles and with some cool new features.
This silver and purple helmet from Claud Butler is a great gift for her, whether she prefers cycling competitively or just for fun at the weekends! At just £24.99, the helmet offers excellent value for money. It’s fully functional with a full in-mould, 17 large air vents, a quick dial retention system, removable peak and pads, and integrated bug net. As well as feeling great, let’s not forget that with its streamlined finish and purple accents, she’ll look great too!
If you’re after a slightly pricier option, our Ammaco LED helmet could be perfect. It comes in three amazing colours; black, orange and purple, meaning you can find one to suit her style or match her bike! At £39.99, this amazing helmet offers the extra safety of a rear LED ‘V’ light. With three adjustable options (constant, flashing and strobe flashing), the light will help her stay safe by alerting road users of her presence.
Ensure a comfortable ride with a saddle cover!
Even the most experienced cyclists can suffer discomfort when sat on the saddle for a long time. That’s why we recommend a padded saddle cover! Our range of saddle covers fit perfectly over most types of bike saddle and can be easily removed when needed. Not only do they add extra cycling comfort, but they also look great and can brighten up the appearance of her bike.
These Dawes Heritage patterned saddle covers are a perfect gift this Mother’s Day. With 5 fun and floral options to choose from, you’re able to customise your gift to suit her preferences or compliment the colour of her bike! We’re sure she’ll love the way her bike looks and feels with her new saddle cover.
Safe and secure child carriers
What better gift for a Mum who loves to cycle than one of our child carriers? No matter whether she prefers to cycle in the park, to a friend’s, or just around the local neighbourhood, her little one will love exploring the outdoors from the best seat in the house.
Our range of simple, but safe child seats ensure a secure solution for carrying a little one while cycling. Our child carriers come with a childproof safety buckle and are easy to set-up and remove.
Some of our favourites include the Raleigh Snug child seat for only £39.99 and the Oxford child seat for £49.99. Both models provide comfort, safety, and fun for her little one while they have their first cycling experience!
Battle extreme weather with protective clothing!
As well as wearing a helmet, there are plenty of other types of protective clothing that she can wear to keep her safe, warm, and dry on the road. Our great range of clothing options is perfect for ensuring visibility and protection against extreme weather.
A simple solution to ensure visibility at night is some hi-vis LED armbands. This pack of four Scotchlite arm and ankle bands are ideal for cycling, running, or walking. At just £8.99, the armbands are made from a lightweight, water-resistant material and include two lighting modes (flashing and constant).
For the Mum who won’t let a splash of rain stop her, this Sugoi blue waterproof jacket is the ideal gift! At £54.99, the jacket will provide her with top-quality protection from the elements with outstanding water resistance including a fully waterproof zipper and waterproof seams. It’s also breathable due to its unique material and large core zippers.
Finally, a set of gloves can go a long way for any cyclist! We love these full-finger pink Ammaco gloves for only £14.99. The gloves will not only keep her hands warm on those cold, winter days but also provide extra grip, protection, and look great too!
For the Mum who has everything…
Finally, for the Mum who seems to have everything, we’re sure she’d love one of our fantastic gift vouchers. Give her the freedom to purchase whatever she requires for her bike both in-store and online. Whether it’s a new accessory, a spare part, or even put towards a brand-new bike, she’ll be able to select what she needs when the time is right for her!
