So it’s new bike day and you’re struggling to come up with a name for your new bike.
Or maybe you’ve decided that your old two-wheeled steed now deserves a cool bike name?
Either way, you’ve come to the right place! Below I’ve put together a list of over 40 unique bike names, suitable for a wide range of bikes.
This bike names list includes the best and boys girl names for bikes. Although any of these bike names can be used by anyone, so feel free to pick and mix!
First I’ll let you know how to choose the perfect name for your bike and then we’ll take a look at the best bike names. If you’d rather jump straight to the list, use the button below.
If you’ve already named your bike, I’d love to hear about it! Comment your bike’s name and why you chose it at the bottom of the page and I’ll add some of the best names to the list for others to see!
Without further ado, here are the best names for a bike!
How to Choose a Name for Your Bike
As you’re probably aware, choosing a name for your bike isn’t quite as easy as it sounds.
With so many different types of bikes finding a name that fits your bike’s personality is a challenge. So, below I’ve put together four different criteria you’ll want to consider to be able to choose the perfect bike name.
Consider the Type of Bike are You Riding
One of the main things you’ll want to consider when choosing a name for your bike is the type of bike you’re riding.
The name you decide on should fit your bike well, unless you want it’s name to be ironic or funny.
I’ve put together a guide which explains and highlights the characteristics of every type of bike, so have a read if you’re unsure what type of bike you’re riding.
Once you’ve established your bike type, you’ll have a better understanding of your bike’s characteristics.
For example comfort bikes are slower and very comfortable to ride, so a name like Whizz or Zipp might not be the best option!
Think About Your Riding Style
Are you a competitive cyclist that likes to overtake everyone in your path or do you enjoy sitting back and enjoying the view?
Either way, make sure to take your preferred riding style into consideration when choosing a name for your bike.
What Colour, Make & Model Is Your Bike?
The colour of your bike is another important attribute to consider when deciding upon the perfect bike name.
If your bike has a similar colour scheme, why not name it after a superhero or film character?
The make and model of your bike can also help to decide its new name.
For example a fitting name for a Trek gravel bike could be Trekker.
Do You Want Funny or Cool Bike Name?
Ultimately deciding on your bikes name is down to you.
If you want to give your bike a funny name that will get laughs from friends you cycle with, do it!
Other cyclist might chose a more serious name as naming an item is shown to create more attachment to it.
If this means you’ll take better care of your bike, it seems like a no-brainer to me!
The Best Genderless Name for Bikes
If you’re after a good bicycle name that isn’t gender-specific, the bike names list below will help you ut and give you plenty of awesome ideas!
The perfect name for a bike that conquers trails and finds daring new paths to follow.
Trailblazer literally means a person or thing that is the first to achieve something, so if you enjoy tackling routes that no one has taken before, there might not be a better bike name!
Rusty, a very fitting name for your old bike that could probably do with a bit of TLC!
If your bike’s been sitting out in the rain and snow for years, but has no problem getting you from a to b, Rusty is a funny and obvious choice.
If your bike hardly moves and sits there watching the days go by, then give it the funny name it deserves.
We’re all guilty of being a couch potato at times, but bikes are made from riding!
Get out there and take your reluctant couch potato for a spin.
Does your bike squeak and groan each time you take it out for a spin?
Or do you have a particularly colourful set of cranks on your bike?
