From Peter Sagan to a stroopwafel (yes, a stroopwafel), we've thought of a number of costumes that are sure to be a hit at any party you may attend.
El Diablo1 of 17
Everyone knows of the Tour de France's most famous fan, and dressing up like him is one easy way to turn a traditional Halloween costume into something a little more fun. Just don't forget the long white beard, crooked horns and pitchfork labeled "Le Tour de France" so you're not mistaken for a boring devil with no athleticism.
Peter Sagan2 of 17
Grab your favorite rainbow jersey, grow some Peter Sagan-inspired facial hair and strut to events as cycling's greatest heartthrob. Too easy? Go for one of his more eclectic looks (Stranger Things, Forrest Gump or even Rocky), you can't go wrong dressed as everyone's favorite Slovakian rider.
Stroopwafel3 of 17
Whether we eat them with coffee or while in the saddle—our love for stroopwafels is deep . So why not show that love on Halloween? Plus, we guarantee no one else will show up dressed like you this year. All you need is a large piece of cardboard cut into a circle and some markers to draw on the classic waffle pattern. Don't want to mess with a big round board the whole night? Amazon has some pretty great waffle-inspired leggings and T-shirts itching to be used.

Halloween is all about being something you're not. And what's more different from a serious cyclist like yourself than wearing a costume that checks off every cycling faux pas that would normally make you cringe?
Hairy legs? Check. Loose helmet? Check. Sleeveless jersey? Check.
Zombie Cycling5 of 17
Otherwise known as a cyclist that just visited Bonktown—this guy or gal is fresh off a hard ride and unable to pedal one more inch. We all know the feeling, and if a zombie dragging its feet, looking for something to eat doesn't aptly describe the feeling, we don't know what does.
U.S. Postal Service Lance Armstrong6 of 17
Interpret this costume how you want, but a classic Lance Armstrong in his prime wouldn't be complete without a yellow jersey, USPS logo and Livestrong bracelet for good measure.
Euro Cyclist7 of 17
All you need for this costume is lots and lots of white: white jersey, white bib shorts—basically white everything. Oh, and don't forget the cool demeanor to go along with it.
Hipster Cyclist8 of 17
Let your hair down and put aside your serious mindset for the sport. Grab a fixie, throw on some jean shorts and thick-rimmed glasses and voila—a ready-made costume for Oct. 31.

If you've seen Tour de Pharmacy, you know of Andy Samberg's, er, lovable character, Marty Hass, the American-born Nigerian cyclist in contention for the Tour de France crown. With his eclectic kit and wild cap, this costume will be a hit at any party you choose to attend.
Road Hazard10 of 17
If you really want to go off the beaten path this Halloween, try dressing up as a road hazard threatening to puncture a cyclist's tire. This could be a nail, cactus or even a pot hole—it's up to you to be creative!
Mountain Biker Bro11 of 17
Head over to the dark side this Halloween, dressed as a road cyclist's grittier counterpart. Aside from the clothing, don't forget to throw phrases like "shred brah" and "gnarly" into your vocabulary to amp up the authenticity. A little dirt never hurt anybody, right?
The Scariest Costume of Them All12 of 17
You guessed it. We're talking about a triathlete. Despite cycling being one leg of a triathlon, the buck stops there, which makes this the perfect choice for your Halloween costume this year. Grab your ankle socks, sleeveless jersey and aero helmet, and you'll be ready to swim, bike and run to your next party. You can even draw your race number on your arm and calf for good measure.
Tour de France Jersey Winner13 of 17
If you're short on time, dressing up as one of the Tour de France jerseys is an easy solution. Would you rather be the overall points earner in green, King of the Mountains in polka dots or the grand champion in yellow?
Drug Tester14 of 17
If you've got a drier sense of humor and like to poke fun at the sport you love, dressing up as a USADA or WADA drug tester is right up your alley. All you need is a pair of khaki pants, a polo shirt and a label for the agency you want to represent. To top it all off, add a couple of sample containers for good measure.
Podium Girl15 of 17
Made even better if worn by a man, this Halloween costume includes a dress in the color of the jersey you are awarding, a trophy or stuffed animal prize and of course lips primed for the classic double cheek kiss.
