For cyclists, almost nothing beats time on the bike. The descents, the steep climbs, and the long miles provide an escape from the everyday. Maybe you get the appeal of riding. Or maybe you don’t.
What does matter though, is that you can show your bike-crazy friends or loved ones that you care by getting them a gift you know they’ll use religiously.
Whether an indoor trainer, a new pair of gloves, or something as simple as a tail light, we’ve assembled a list of 5 of the best gifts for the cyclist in your life this holiday season.
CycleOps’ SuperMagneto Pro Trainer offers smooth road-feel and four magnetic settings for dialing in the exact real-world simulation your workout calls for. BONUS: West Point Cycles’ December feature item and 15% off this month.
Spurcycle bells create powerful, enduring sound. Give notice well in advance with a loud, convincing tone. Precision built in the USA for a lifetime of way clearing.
Versatile rain protection for the hands. These light GORE-TEX® gloves are an essential accessory for mountain courses and longer cycle tours in the rain.
Make every ride safer with the first tail light designed for daylight visibility. Flare R’s balanced optics set off with a powerful CREE LED can be seen from over 2km day or night. 65 Lumens and 270 degrees of visibility help make you the biggest distraction on the road.
When it’s time to ride, Assos’ Chamois Créme should be the first thing you put on. Trust us, this stuff is essential if you ride often, whether on the road or trails. Your rides will be comfortable all day thanks to the all-natural ingredients that provide lubrication, anti-chafing support and anti-bacterial protection.
Thanks to Jessica Browne of West Point Cycles for the great recommendations.
