Like most outdoor adventurers, many bicycle riders take cycling very seriously. Whether he is a professional cyclist or simply a recreational enthusiast, friends and family may enjoy the opportunity to poke fun at the sport through a series of gag gifts. For safety and aesthetic reasons, never alter the rider's bicycle, even as part of a joke.
Provide a bicycle rider with a host of gag accessories. A serious cyclist will laugh if you offer him a white wicker basket adorned with flowers to attach to the front of his handlebars, as well as such childish fare as a horn, a siren or handlebar tassels. Include a collection of baseball cards to stick in the spokes of the bicycle. Give him a collection of humorous bumper stickers to attach to the back of his seat, including one that reads "I Love My Harley Davidson."
Give the bike rider a variety of clothing featuring funny sayings relating to bikes. Offer T-shirts and hats with such phrases as "Chicks Dig My Ride" and "Four Wheels Are For Wimps." Instead of a water bottle or hydration pack, give the cyclist a beer helmet outfitted with cup holders and long straws -- remembering to replace the beer with bottles of water, of course. Give her a replica of the Tour de France's highly sought-after yellow jersey, the cycling jersey awarded to the leader at the end of each day of the gruelling, world-famous bicycle race.
Order a mock-up of an Olympic gold medal for cycling or the Tour de France trophy, a purple and gold bowl-shaped award. For a cyclist with a pet, order a similar trophy to serve as a food and water bowl. Present the cyclist with a riding kit filled with silly fare like yellow finish-line tape. Tease her about maintaining her physical appearance during exhausting excursions by including such items as a brush, comb, compact mirror, foundation powder, lipstick and travel-size hairspray.
