Cheap Bicycle Touring Gifts Under $25
For less than $25 there are many cycling gift ideas that are usually very easy to find. You could buy cycling socks but there are so many more options. But cheap doesn’t need to be poor quality. All the items listed below I have personally used, reviewed, and tested. They might be cheap but they are the best of the best when it comes to quality.
The bike smartphone holder is probably the best cycling gift you can get. Everyone carries their smartphone with them and here is the best way to do it. Rest assured the phone will not fall out when cycling even when mountain biking or on gravel bikes. It is super tough and reasonably priced.
Flat tires are more than annoying when out cycling. The Park Tools Tire levers work great and are compact to carry with you on every trip. I’ve been using these for years and can verify the high quality and reasonable price.
Finish Line makes the best chain lube available. The dry lube is my personal favorite and I am yet to meet a cyclist who does not like this high quality chain lubrication oil.
Slime, no not the stuff you used as a kid, the stuff you put inside tire tubes to prevent flat tires. It can be used on tubeless tires or tires with tubes. Flat tires suck but with Slime they are a thing of the past.
Bike Touring & Bikepacking Gift ideas from $25 – $50
For a couple of dollars more here are some bike touring gift ideas. An REI Gift Card is a good option if can’t decide or have a fussy person you are buying for.
The Topeak Mini 20 Pro has every tool that you will need when cycling. It is lightweight, very compact and something cyclists will take with them on every ride. Another one of the best cycling gifts.
The Topeak Mini Morph is a compact bike pump that I’ve been using and testing for around 10 years. So I can confirm it is high quality, lightweight, and keeps on working for years and years. And it is reasonably priced. A great gift for keeping bike tires inflated.

There are loads of good bikepacking gift options at this price range. An REI Gift Card is a good option if can’t decide or have a fussy person you are buying for.
A top tube bag is a small bag that sits on the top tube near the handlebars. They are great for storing snacks, your wallet, bike tools, and more. This one from Revelate designs is my favorite.
It is easy to spend over $200 on a good pair of cycling glasses, that’s why the Tifosi Sledge is a good option. They are high quality without costing a fortune.
This front bike light is reasonably priced and ensures you can see where you are going at night and your bike is visible, even during the day. All bike lovers should have a bike light like this.
Best Bicycle Touring Gifts over $100
With more than $100 to spend there are loads of options. There are the obvious expensive items like a brand new bicycle but they are such a personal choice that an REI Gift Card would be a better option so they choose the style and size that suits them best. Below are some gift ideas for Bikepackers and Bike Tourers.
Ortlieb Panniers are the best available. I’ve been using them for cycling touring on 4 continents. They are also very popular for bike commuting around town. Whether you are crossing continents or commuting to work these are a great option.
Ok, so this bike computer is not cheap but it is one of the best gifts for cyclists. If your cycling friend is a bike nerd who loves stats, GPS-tracked rides, and more then this is the perfect gift for them.
Every Bikepacker wants or uses a seat pack like this. I use a smaller version I find it great to store my gear when riding on trails with all my camping gear.
One of the most popular lightweight tents on the market. I’ve used and tested this tent during hundreds of nights on bikepacking and bike touring trips. Not cheap but full of awesomeness.
The Zpacks Mummy Sleeping bag has one of the best warmth to weight ratios of any sleeping bag available anywhere in the world. Everything about this sleeping bag is ultralight weight and super high quality. This is my sleeping bag of choice and the perfect ultralight bikepacking gift.
