This holiday gift guide is full of my top picks for bikes (and bike-related goodies) for every age.  There’s a ride-on toy for your baby, a first bike for your preschooler, a mountain bike for your middle schooler, and even a little something for mom and dad.

Also, if you are looking for deals this holiday season, scroll all the way to the bottom.  We’re listing sales and coupons there as we find them.

Rascal Rides Holiday Gift Guide + Giveaway

A Note On Availability This Holiday Season

In the event that you’ve been blissfully unaware of the mayhem going on in the bike industry the last 9 months, consider this your wake up call.  COVID has created a massive bike boom (and issues in the supply chain) causing kids bikes (and all things bike-related) to be REALLY hard to get.

The good news is that many companies have received more stock this fall, and it’s become easier (or at least pre-order) kids bikes.  That said, we anticipate most kids bikes to sell out BEFORE Black Friday.

If you know you want a bicycle under the tree this Christmas, don’t delay.  And don’t wait for great sales–we’ve heard from most kids bike brands that they won’t be offering deals this holiday season.

Best Bike-Related Gifts for Baby

Don’t leave baby out of the bicycle fun!  As soon as baby can crawl, sit, and explore, you can start introducing them to a pre-bike, and once their neck is strong enough, you can add a helmet to your bike rides.  For more information on biking with a baby, read our Guide to Biking with Baby.

  1. Great to know about the helmet! I’ll probably be getting that for the baby this year. We have Mike and the Bike and my son loves it too. Unfortunately, there are two major problems with it – the introduction by Lance Armstrong and the atrocious music. Fortunately, my son didn’t remember hearing the songs well enough to request them again in the future!

  2. it’s been a tough year for us, i have MS and then diagnosed with breast cancer. My son who is 14 has been so stressed and just down. winning a gift would be great~

  3. Yuba Spicy Curry Bosch Electric Bike with kids’ back seats would make me wanna workout little more involving kids! What a great idea! Happy Holidays!!!
