Gifts ideas for Cyclists

By Jane O’Neill from Abundant Glass

Much of my work on Folksy is inspired by the landscapes and architecture I see from the saddle of my bike and I’m always keen to see what other cyclists are creating. This is particularly true at this time of the year as my partner and many of my friends are also enthusiastic cyclists, so when it comes to present buying, cycling-themed work is often top of the list. Here are some of my top picks from Folksy.

The Zig Zag, zig zag print, boxhill, Susie West, gifts for cyclists, cyclist gifts,

I live in the Pennines surrounded by some of the steepest cycling hills in the UK. I absolutely love this print as it reminds me of how the local hills feel on a long days cycling. Looks like Boxhill in Dorking might be worth a visit!

I love the humour of Dog as Pony’s work and this t-shirt is gorgeous – such a lovely colour and a fun gift.

There is plenty of lovely cycling jewellery on Folksy and it was hard to pick my favourites. This solid silver necklace is for me – friends please note! I love this stylised geometrical take on the bicycle shape.

And I would know someone who would just love these silver earrings inspired by the links in bicycle chains. Very clever!

Carolyn Wright’s boxy make-up bag with its beautiful Rose and Hubble print is a perfect gift for the friend who loves all things cyclist but seems to have everything already.

One of my new finds during this Folksy search was a host of pop-up 3D cards, several cycling related. I really like the detail on this card by Adam Kurzydlo.

I looked for other artists who depicted cyclists in local scenery. I was very tempted by the work of Giuliana Lazzerini in Bluebird Gallery which also takes a look at the Tour de Yorkshire route. In the end though it was this print by Denise Burden which reminds me of many happy days of cycling in France that won my heart. This one is for my partner and cycling buddy.

And finally, if you’re still looking for cycling gifts, can I tempt you to have a look at my ‘cyclist on a hill’ sculpture? It’s one of my most popular items and a big hit with all cycle lovers.
