BiCi Co Holiday Gift Guide

During the holiday season, we’re bombarded with messaging that encourages us to buy this, spend on that. Obviously, we’re hoping you’ll choose to spend some of your dollars with us. However, our vision for the holiday season is less about stuff and more about building the community of people that love bikes, love people, and love what bikes can do for people. 

As such, the BiCi Co Festivus Gift Guide combines “things” with “opportunities” to connect, give back, and enhance the riding experience for yourself, your friends and the community.  

BiCi Co is a people first organization. Help us continue to grow our impact with youth and adults. We hope you’ll consider more than just purchasing stuff, and consider renewing or becoming a new member of the BiCi Co cycling community.
