With only four days until Father’s Day, we’ve been getting lots of phone calls at the shop from people eager to find the perfect gift for Dad. So we put together this little guide. Whatever your budget, we’ve got a thoughtful gift that the bike riding Dad in your life is sure to enjoy.

Gotham Defender Light… $59

Is Dad a Kickstarter fan? Then he’s sure to appreciate this innovative bike light, which was launched with a successful Kickstarter campaign last year. The Defender Light is the world’s first theft-proof bicycle light, locking onto bike handlebars with a proprietary key. It lights the way with a ring of LED lights, providing 6 lumens of brightness. And its sleek, all-metal design makes it both durable and sexy.

Theft proof, Water proof, City proof

Bern Brentwood Helmet… $79.99

If you can’t remember the last time Dad got a new helmet, then it’s definitely time for a replacement. Bike helmets are meant to endure one and only one crash, but did you know that most manufacturers give their helmets a “lifespan” of 5 years, whether or not they’ve endured a crash? They suppose that even if you’ve gone that long without a crash (in which case, good for you!), you’ve probably dropped your helmet enough times to compromise its strength.

The Bern Brentwood Helmet features a fabric visor for protecting Dad from the elements. When summer ends, just remove the visor and replace it with Bern’s winter liner kit (sold separately), and voila! Dad’s got a toasty warm helment for winter bike rides or even snowboarding and skiing. Bicycle Roots has all sizes of the Brentwood in stock, from Small to XXXL. Does Dad have a luxurious mane of dreadlocks? We’ve got a helmet to fit him.

Endura “New York” Cool Max Jersey… $79.99

This awesome cycling jersey from Endura is perfect for summer riding. Its made of CoolMax fabric for the ultimate in fast-wicking comfort. And if Dad is a native New Yorker he’ll take pride in representing his home state. How they managed to fit the Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn Bridge, Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, Broadway, and Wall Street all onto one jersey is beyond us. Must be magic!
