Looks like you finally don’t need to worry about your poor bike feeling left out this season, because when you look at these costumes you are going to realize that they wouldn’t be complete without it!
As you have seen, they range from funny to innovative to downright scary, and most of them won’t even cost you more than a broken down road bike without a fork or handlebars.
So get ready to get your party on and scare the very souls out of passersby as you gallop, buzz, zoom and soar your way around the neighborhood in your epic new Halloween bike costumes!
Let’s take a closer look at the twenty costumes from the infographic:
While everyone else is going to be cruising around (or walking around) dressed up in the usual movie character costumes, you are going to be soaring high above them all in this rad astronaut outfit. Personalize your bike so that it looks like a rocket ship with some cardboard, and you are going to have a BLAST.
Why not rear up on your silver steed (get your bike out and give it that much needed paint job if you have to) and get out there to scare the skin off people? Dress up in a cloak that covers your face, leaving nothing but a black pit, and hold a jack ‘o’ lantern in your hand! People are going to lose their heads this Halloween.
All you need to get this outfit sorted out is a lot of cardboard, spray paint and chicken costumes. Make the coop around your bike. If you happen to have a tandem bike lying around, you can make the coop even better by getting a couple of friends to complete the image.
Hop on your bike, and go get a witch costume from the nearest costume store (these seem to magically appear as Halloween draws near). Tie a broomstick on your seat shaft and the outfit is complete! All you need now is to get in front of a mirror and work on that cackle.
If you watched the original movies, you are definitely going to be a fan of Red Squadron. This is a squad of X-Wing pilots who singlehandedly took down the Empire’s Death Star battle station. You can feel like Luke Skywalker himself if you dress up in the brown robes of the Jedi Order. Get yourself a cardboard cutout of the rebel starships and you are going to be zapping your way down the streets this Halloween. May the Force be with you!
Gallop around town in this epic mythological costume, and turn your bike into a steed made out of nothing but spells and potions, and human fantasy. Make this Halloween magical by riding your unicorn around the neighborhood.
Instead, why not take your recumbent bike and put it to good use? Using cardboard or even plywood to craft the outline of waves around your bike, with a shark in the middle and you riding in the open maw of the beast is going to make your Halloween outfit look like a scene from Jaws.
You can do this by getting a costume that is classically French, with the little poufy hat and the striped clothes. Get out your tandem bike or upright bike and you will be able to ride around town this Halloween looking absolutely parfait.
With the right positioning to make sure that you are in the driver’s position when you get on your bike, you will be sure to get a few laughs out of the people who see this costume.
Why not give the costume some added flair and dress yourself up in a rat’s costume? This way you will be able to look like you are chasing after the cheese in a never-ending race.
You can now dress yourself up to look like the hero Atreyu this Halloween. Make people gasp in awe as you ride your bike, which has been outfitted to look like the silver dragon from the movies. This is definitely one way to make an impact.
Since Halloween is all about carving those pumpkins up, this is definitely something that will be very attractive to just about any of you cyclists looking for great costume ideas this Halloween.
You can pretend to be the Red Baron himself this Halloween! Put a red plane cutout on your bike or make a bike trailer with a kid sitting in the plane and complete the outfit with a vintage fighter pilot costume! Soar around the neighborhood in this rad costume.
