5 Awesome Crochet Items for Bicyclists

I don’t ride a bike. I haven’t since I was a kid. Someday I’m going to learn mountain biking but it just hasn’t happened yet. Nevertheless, the bike community interests me. My sister is a bike mechanic. My brother almost biked across the country. I am supportive of Critical Mass and interested by people who bike to work. So even though the bike community isn’t “my” community, per se, I eye it as an outsider. And of course I eye it with an interest in how crochet plays a role in the bicycle community.

If I were cyclist, these are some of the crochet items I might want:

1. Soft leather cycling gloves with hand-crocheted backs.

These were recently reviewed on Road.cc. It’s a great review. Check it out. There are, however, more affordable crochet-enhanced cycling gloves available on Amazon 5 Awesome Crochet Items for Bicyclists.

2. Crochet Dress Guard.

I see lots of these around the web. These come from a post on Las Teje y Maneje via BlogHer.

3. Vintage Crochet Bicycle Vest

How fun is this? The pattern is available on Amazon from Princess of Patterns 5 Awesome Crochet Items for Bicyclists.

4. Crochet Bike Basket.

I feel like a crochet bicycle basket would be a must if I did have a bike! The pattern shown above comes from jspirik on Etsy. There’s also an interesting bike basket on Amazon called the Carrie Basket 5 Awesome Crochet Items for Bicyclists that isn’t actually crochet but is crochet-inspired in design. Perhaps sturdier than one that’s actually crocheted?

5. Crochet Bike Seat Cover

I especially adore this heart one (pattern via CrochetMe).

OMG this is great! I crocheted one-side bike panniers but these are great! I can see what will my next project be :D

As a seasonal cyclist (not in the cold or snow) I'd have to say that the only thing you haven't covered is some sort of doohickey for the water bottle holder. I would most likely crochet the basket (ADORABLE) or the bike seat!
