May is National Bike Month, created as a unique opportunity to celebrate the power of the bicycle and the many reasons we ride them. If you love riding your bike, there’s a good chance you’ve adorned it with a few stickers. Bicycle stickers add a measure of personality to your ride. The equivalent of a car bumper sticker, they can be meaningful or humorous, or just plain fun. And some bike stickers, including the examples below, are crafted by talented designers to add style and character to your two-wheeled machine. Here are 10 of the coolest bike sticker designs I’ve found, shared here for your inspiration.

Attractive and useful, I love these geometric bicycle stickers because you can customize your own design.
MacGyver could turn anything into a bomb, including a bicycle, which is what I thought was the original inspiration for these stickers. However, these stickers were printed by a band, and even caused a stir as bomb squads were called to investigate (follow the link to learn more).
