Whether you’re riding around town, heading to work, or pedaling to the grocery store it’s nice to bring a drink with you.
On cold, brisk mornings I love to bring coffee with me on my rides. It feels like heaven sipping hot coffee while pedaling through the cold, still mornings. But perhaps you’re looking for a bike cup holder not for coffee, but for a cold brew, a can of soda, or a bottle of water.
Below you’ll find a list of bike cup holders that can fit whatever your drink-holding needs are. The list contains holders that range from uber-functional to super-aesthetic.
I’ll highlight the following:
- My top pick for cup holder (overall winner!)
- Most stylish choice
- Best budget choice
- Best cup holder for coffee cups
1. The HandleStash (My Top Pick)
The HandleStash has taken the issues experienced by numerous other holders and solved them!
To be honest, this is my top pick for cup holder by a mile!
With its quick drawstring and springy mesh bottom you’ll no longer need to worry about your drink spilling all over your legs. It is easy to install and gets the job done.
As a bonus – it’s made in the United States (if that’s important to you).
And I’ve been able to do a deal for all our readers with Handlestash. (Woop!) They are now offering 10% off for all our readers if you use the code BICYCLE2WORK at checkout. You can buy the Handlestash cup holder on their website here (don’t forget the discount code!)

2. Most Stylish Choice – Personalized Leather Bike Cup Holder
You’re looking at a 100% leather handmade bicycle cup holder. The design allows for it to attach to a handlebar and even a bike basket.
Looking for a cup holder that can carry your beer? soda? coffee? water bottle? This one can do the trick, and look good while doing it.
As a bonus, you can have it personalized with a name, phrase, or image. Make sure to leave the details of what you want to be stamped into the leather when you order.
Of course, if you’d rather just keep it all-natural, it doesn’t have to have anything stamped into it either. The coloring options are black, brown, and grey.
3. Best Budget Choice – Ibera Bicycle Cup Holder
This holder is made for cups without handles, a thermos, or a tumbler. Ibera states that the cup should have a width of at least 78 mm (3 inches) diameter when measured 20 mm (0.8 inches) from the top of the cup.
It can only hold a cup with a maximum height of up to 170 mm (6.5 inches). In addition, it must be a tapered cup that is wider at the top than the bottom.
It can be installed on the handlebar or stem of your bike which makes it easy for you to access your drink while on the bike.
4. Cruzies Bike Cup Holder
The Cruzies Bike Cup Holder is perfect for holding cans, cups, bottles, beverages, and even keys or your phone. It’s made by the same manufacturer as the Hydroflask and is made of stainless steel.
The Cruzies come in a variety of colors (blue, red, silver, black, pink, turquoise), and each one has a foam insert to help insulate your drink. Like a few of the cup holders above it doesn’t need a tool to install, but I would recommend getting a pair of pliers to make sure it’s extra tight on your handlebars.
This is the perfect bike cup holder for a cruise along the bike path at sunset. Get yourself a nice beverage to enjoy while you take a nice, leisurely pedal.
5. Best Cup-Holder For Hot Drinks – Portland Design Works Bar-Ista Coffee Cup Holder
Portland Design Works has a whole collection of great bike accessories. It’s not the first time we have highlighted their products (see our bike bell article).
Here we have their take on a bike cup holder. It is made of aluminum, and designed with a rubberized interior to firmly grip tapered cups. You won’t have to ride as slow as a turtle with a coffee in hand any longer!
The Bar-ista (see what they did there? haha) comes in two sizes to fit different-sized handlebars.
We would recommend making sure that you carry a drink with a fitted seal in case you hit a bump, but other than that this is a solid product. You won’t regret getting it.
Whether you’ll be carrying a hot or cold beverage while you bike we are sure that one of the above products will make this possible.
It doesn’t matter if you’re commuting to work, cycling to the local farmer’s market, or cruising around town these bike cup holders can hold your drink as you pedal away. So fill up your cup, get on your bike, and start riding!
