If you know a cyclist or are looking to buy for one, it can be difficult to know what to get. Buying the right gift is all about finding that little something extra, the little touch that shows you really care and understand their love for cycling. This can be anything from something completely practical that they can use on their bike to a gimmick that will make them laugh out loud. The latter will probably be the most popular option, as there are plenty of funny gifts for cyclists that will really hit home.
There is also a huge choice of cycling themed gifts, including curtains, towels, rugs, posters and mugs. These can be fun and quirky or very useful, and often show that you’ve put thought into your purchase and know the person you’re buying for. These types of gifts are great for Secret Santa or if you’re not sure what to buy the bike lover in your life.
One of the best gifts you can give a cyclist is a pair of quality socks. While they may seem like a bit of a cop-out present, cyclists take their socks seriously and are often keen to show off their personality on the bike with designs that range from ice cream to unicorns. These cycling socks from Stolen Goat are a fantastic example, and feature some truly eye-catching patterns.
Another great practical present for a cyclist is a set of good-quality hex keys. It’s never a pleasant experience when you are preparing to change a part on your bike and realise that you don’t have the correct tool. This seven-piece set from Wera will ensure that the recipient always has the right key for the job.
Cycling gloves are another very useful gift, especially for cyclists who ride in winter. The cold weather can put a stop to any outdoor riding and these high-quality cycling gloves will help to keep them warm and dry when they’re out on their bike.
It’s hard to beat a good bottle of water during a long distance cycle, so this CamelBak insulated bottle is a great gift for any cyclist. They can sip on ice-cold water and stay hydrated while they’re pushing themselves to their limit.
A quality pair of cycling shoes can be expensive but they are an essential part of any cyclist’s kit. These Fjallraven X-Trail Pro Runners will fit the bill nicely, offering a blend of comfort and performance.
A bike-themed mug is a fun and quirky way to show your appreciation of the cyclist in your life. This mug features a series of Strava achievements, which will definitely make them smile when they have their morning cup of coffee.
