There’s no denying that cyclists are passionate about their hobby. They’ll find a way to turn any conversation around to bikes and cycling, no matter what the topic. “That new Tesla Model Y gets a 300-mile range with a single battery charge, you say? Ah yes, but did you know that cyclists can travel over 100 miles on a single stomach full of healthy fruit and vegetables?”
You’ve been there, you know what it’s like. But now you have to buy the cyclist in your life a gift, so what do you get for them? Well, funnily enough, socks with bikes on them are an excellent choice. Why? Well, sometimes cyclists need a little conversation-starter to swing the topic around to their favorite subject. So, with a quick flick of their pants leg (revealing their beloved new socks) they’ll be away: “Oh, yes, these are my new socks. Yes, actually, I do like biking. Did I tell you about the time when…”
So, I’ve done some research online to find the best pairs of socks available that have bikes on them. I believe I’ve uncovered some fantastic options – shall we take a look?
Socks with bikes on them…or bike socks…?
First up, let’s clarify what we’re talking about, and what we’re not talking about. The socks on this list are primarily designed for leisure or more formal occasions. They’re not specifically socks for cycling. That being said, I’ve also found some great socks that ARE designed for cycling and DO have bikes on them. What could be better?
