It’s coming to the time of year again when you need to buy the special cyclist in your life a Christmas gift or two. It can be hard to find a gift for the cyclist who has it all but we can assure you there is always something else to buy them! As cyclists ourselves we know how good it feels to open a gift which someone has clearly thought about. Keep reading to the end to find out about our special Christmas party event!
This year we have compiled just a few Christmas gift ideas which we are sure the cyclist in your life will love.
Help Them Get Fitter
The only way to get fitter, faster and better on the bike is to monitor your activity levels. Polar’s Loop does all of these. The Loop can sync with your computer and/or phone app so you can monitor your daily activity levels, your rest levels and the quality of your sleep. The perfect gift for any age or gender. The loop comes in black, blue or purple.
Help Them Stay Warm
We are now in the colder, winter months and it’s important for all cyclists to wear the correct clothing. A jacket is a great splurge gift to make sure your cyclist is kept warm and protected from the winter elements.
Help Their Bike Stay Safe
A small lock for when your favourite cyclist is at the cafe stop is a great gift. Ideally you want a lock which is lightweight and does the job of protecting the bike from any unwanted attention. We love this lock from Kryptonite.
Help Their Feet
Take a different spin on the traditional Christmas gift of socks and purchase some which are cycling specific. Cyclists can never have enough socks!
Help Their Energy Levels
For a stocking filler or those on a smaller budget a cycling bottle is a great gift. Bottles need replacing regularly and this is something which many cyclists don’t do often enough. You can always add a bottle cage to make the gift complete.
Help Them Keep Their Head Warm
We lose most of the heat from our body through our head. Ensure the cyclist you are shopping for keeps warm by treating them to a skullcap. These fit nicely under a helmet and are fleece lined for a cozy feel.
Help Them Carry Things
It’s a fact that cyclists have to carry quite a few things when out on the bike. These include spare inner tubes, money and tools. All this can mean our pockets get weighed down. The ideal gift in this situation is a saddle bag, like this one from Fi’zik which fits stylishly to the back of the saddle.
Help Them Be Seen
It is common sense when riding in the dark to use lights. There is no excuse to not be seen anymore as lights are affordable and great quality nowadays. Ensure your cyclist friend is seen by treating them to a good light set this Christmas. We shared more about the importance of lights in our get your bike your ready for winter post.
Help Them Pick Their Own
For the cyclist who has everything or if you’re just not sure what to get them this Christmas, the perfect gift has got to be Pennine Cycles gift vouchers. You can buy them in any denomination and it means you can be sure the cyclist in your life gets exactly what they want this year.
Especially for the Children
We also have children’s bikes which are a fantastic gift for all children. Cycling teaches them so much about road safety, helps them stay active and gives them a chance to have fun! Every year we have a Christmas savings club and we have a great selection of bikes for Children in stock. We have kid’s bikes for girls and boys of all ages including BMX’s.
