Five Ways to Put a Smile on a Cyclist's Face

With cycling rates increasing across America, it's probably a safe bet that you know and care for a bicyclist who would be ecstatic to receive one of Fast Company's "safe, stylish, and fun" gift ideas this holiday season.

Morgan Clendaniel plays Santa's little helper with recommendations for five gifts to make biking more safe, stylish, and fun. He spotlights a threatening looking bike light that's unlikely to be stolen, a glowing belt to increase visibility, a bike for children that expands as they grow, and a bell that looks and sounds nothing like a bell.  

Finally for those who have yet to purchase their very own ride, Clendaniel suggests, "signing up with Liquid, a company that lets you do peer-to-peer bike sharing in cities across America. If you want to try out biking, this is a good place to start. If you’re a tourist in a new city, you’ll get a much nicer and classier bike than you would find at your standard bike rental outfit. And if you have a bike that often sits idle, it’s a good way to make enough cash to afford, say, a glowing bike belt. You can sign up here."
