Christmas is on the way so why not get yourself prepared by hitting the road and getting those gifts ideas rolling!
Here are 7 Cycling gift ideas that we know you will wheelie like.
1. A New Garmin
Garmin computers are getting sleeker and smarter. The Garmin Edge 520 gives lots of stats in a compact format with a large screen. But if your recipient’s navigational skills aren’t up to scratch, you might want to consider an Edge 1000, with full blown turn-by-turn mapping.
2. SiS Team Sky 4 Hour Fuel Pack
If you plan on racking up the miles through winter, you’ll need to stay fuelled. Team Sky sponsors Science in Sport are on hand with this convenient fuel pack, which contains an array of gels, bars, drinks sachets and recovery products, as well as a Team Sky bottle. Science in Sport say the pack includes everything you need for a four-hour ride – whether that’s true or not, there’s plenty to get your teeth stuck in to.
3. Cycling socks
You can’t go wrong giving a roadie new socks!
Buying new socks for a roadie: nearly guaranteed to please. For fun, loud styles, you have all manner of options, from Tenspeed, Hero and Panache to The Athletic and Sako7. For warmer winter wear, you can still get some style from the likes Castelli and Swiftwick to Giro and Defeet.
4. Tacx Vortex Smart T2180 turbo trainer
Smart turbo trainers are becoming increasingly popular, as a means of spicing up what could otherwise be a mind-numbingly boring winter of turbo trainer sessions. There are plenty of options on the market, all at various price points, but the Tacx Vortex Smart offers a decent return on your investment.
5. Topeak Hexus II
Every cyclist will know that it’s great to have multi-tool around, and you can’t beat the Topeak Hexus II. It’s cleverly designed to take up minimum space, yet still packs in 16 very useful tools.
6. Muc-Off Bike Care Essentials Kit
By the time Christmas rolls around, we’ll well and truly be into the depths of winter and your bike will be beginning to feel the pressure after pounding the mucky lanes. The Muc-Off Bike Care Essentials Kit contains the basics to give your pride and joy some TLC over the Christmas break.
You’ll find Muc-Off’s excellent cleaning solution, along with a water dispersing protective spray, micro-cell sponge, and wheel and component brush to get to tricky spots. Muc-Off chuck in a tote bag, too, so you can store everything together.
7. The Yellow Jersey
And last but not all… We saved the best until last!
Give that Chris Froome feeling with a replica Tour de France yellow jersey. Of course, it does mean whoever receives your gift will have to be leading from the front. But that’s no bad thing as they will have to stick to the diet to keep to their “race weight”… Easily done over Christmas!
