6 Christmas Gift Ideas for the Cyclist in your Life!
Christmas isn’t far away, and you may be racking your brain to think of a suitable present for the cyclist in your life. Fear not. Cyclists are always on the lookout for new gear, and many will be happy with an inner tube or two and a decent water bottle. If you want to go the extra mile, however, this post will point you in the right direction.
1 Cycling Holiday Voucher
One of the best things you can give a cyclist is a holiday voucher. There is nothing quite like a cycling holiday or training camp to improve skills and techniques, and indeed to relax and take in the sun. With Sean Kelly riding with us in April and October, and Early Season Training Camps available for under 560 € per person, a SportActive Cycling Voucher is better than most.
2 Cycling Tools
Cyclists love cycling tools as they often have a part to play in the season. There is a range of gifts you can choose from swanky coloured spanners to clever and compact multi-tools. Don’t forget inner tubes are always welcome and If you want some ideas, consider this offering from Runwell.
To truly make the cyclist in your life happy, buy a range of tools and spare parts.
3 Titanium Bottle Cages
Nothing quite says luxury cycling than titanium bottle cages. The better offerings are made with lightweight tubing approved by the aircraft industry, are handmade using laser technology, weigh almost nothing, and are guaranteed for about 25 years give or take.
It may only be a water bottle cage, but it is made from titanium. I mean, titanium!
4 Indoor Cycle Machines
If you live in Britain or Ireland, you can’t argue that the weather is often wet. This can make cycling a tad less fun. As such, you can give an indoor trainer to keep the cyclist in your life not only happy but fit.
They come in a range of shapes and sizes but by far the most luxurious is this offering from Elite Fuoripista. They are an American company and currently selling the sleekest indoor trainer for just under $17,000 USD.
It looks so amazing that even ardent car drivers will want to at least sit on it.
If this one is too rich for your blood, there are more economical choices. Some of the better ones integrate with apps to give the illusion of climbing mountains such as Alp D’Huez, and you can race with friends digitally.
5 Say it with a Plant Pot
Anhängsel’s LOM plant pot is designed to fit on the handlebar of your bike, allowing you to bring the green as well as live the green when cycling. It is made from recycled materials and is highly suited if the cyclist in your life is also a member of the Extinction Rebellion.
Good cycling clothing is always in demand, and you can’t wear your favourite SportActive cycling jersey every day. As such, receiving cycle clothing from a leading brand is always welcome. At Christmas winter cycling gear is in demand as keeping out the weather is often paramount.
Give the gift of cycling to your loved one.
