When looking for gifts for cyclists, you can't go wrong with something that will add enjoyment to the ride, something that is functional or something that will make cycling a bit safer. Here is our guide to some of the best gifts for cyclists
Cycle of Good are a fair trade and vegan friendly company who make products from recycled bicycle inner tubes saved from UK landfill and handcrafted in Malawi. Take a look at the phone cases, wallets, lunch bag, coin purse and shopper bag.
For the explorer or the enthusiast, there are different books for different tastes. Looking to explore Scotland or Northern England by gravel bike? There the Gravel Rides Scotland, Spokes Edinburgh Map or Lost Lanes North. For the cyclist who is into nutrition, there’s ‘Eat, Bike, Cook’ or for the Brompton Enthusiast, there's 'Brompton Bicycle 3rd Edition'.
Some gifts you can buy that will be very helpful regardless of the level of cyclist you are buying for. Items such as socks (I know, I know, boring!), as a cyclist you can never have enough good socks such as Endura Hummvee Waterproof Sock, BaaBaa Merino socks or the Pro SL Primaloft socks. The same goes for gloves, especially with winter rolling in fast. Assos Ultraz stand out in terms of performance and the Endura Strike gloves are exceptional value and available in male and female fit. As a stylish garment for on or off the bike, the Endura Hummvee Hoodie.
There are some gifts that most cyclists will enjoy due to how functional they are. Items such as the Quadlock Phone Case and Mount for fitting your smart phone to the handlebars. Lights are a safe bet as a gift as even in the daytime, lights make you more visible from further away. You can buy gifts to customise helmets with cycle helmet accessories.
A lot of cyclists love a good bit of cycling tech. Garmin have just released the Edge Explore 2 bike computer that gives gps mapping and e-bike compatibility at a very reasonable price. If you travel longer distances and find yourself getting a bit bored on rides, Shokz Openrun Pro are a bone conducting headphone that still allow you to hear traffic while listening to music or podcasts!
From stocking fillers to more substantial gifts, there is a great deal to choose from. The Acor Ladybug bell will brighten any handlebar. Specialized produce the Mio MIPS and Shuffle childrens’ helmets in bright colours to make your little one stand out with childrens MIPS helmets now available. With the colder weather rolling in, a good pair of gloves such as the Endura Kids Nemo Glove would be a good choice too.
