Fun Times, Fun Products, and Great Gifts for Under $30

December 4, 2017

Shopping for a cyclist you love? Adventure Cycling strives to make that an easy, fun, one-stop experience, all without spending over $30 per item! Give these links a little peek and perhaps you’ll find something special for that special someone!

For starters, everyone can use a multi-tool and the Park Tool IB-3C I-Beam Mini Folding Multi-Tool, weighing in at just six ounces and equipped with the proper tools for just about any minor adjustment, should not be overlooked.


Additionally, staying hydrated on any ride is important even in cold temperatures. While anyone can rock the classic — and downright timeless — Adventure Cycling Association Bottle Cage, we fully understand if your lifestyle is a bit more sophisticated, and if so, the Portland Design Works Owl Cage is your ticket. Offered in three distinctive, fun colors, the Owl Cage is guaranteed to put a fun spin on a generic piece of equipment we all use and abuse.


Here in the beautiful northwest Montana autumn, it seems like the sun begins its descent before I take lunch. Therefore, a little extra light is always a good thing to have in the bag. And being battery free, the LuminAID PackLite Nova is just the light I recommend. This extremely light (five ounces), solar-powered light folds into itself for easy packing. This light is a must for any trip.


Speaking of trips are you? Well, you have the light, the hydration carrier, and the tool, but what are your plans for camp? You can’t simply disappear deep within your sleeping bag, can you? The Terra Fun Game Set is the perfect lightweight game to bring some cheer into your tired bike-travel body and mind.


But don’t stop here. This is simply four items out of 100+ different options found in Gifts under $30. Check them out.

We at Cyclosource and the whole Adventure Cycling crew, sincerely wish you a happy, fun, and stress-free holiday filled with family, friends, and bicycle rides. Happy Trails!
