A couple weeks ago I gave some cycling and outdoor gift ideas. The cycling gifts included things mountain bikers would like. The post has been popular so here are some more gift ideas of road cyclists. Mountain bikers would also love most of these gifts.
Graham Watson is one of the best photographers of pro cycling. I don’t any road cyclist that wouldn’t love the Graham Watson Calendar
Safety is important when you’re on the road. We always hope that nothing bad will happen and most likely it won’t. Still it’s good to have some ID on you if you’re injured and can’t talk. I’ve been using the wrist Road ID
for a very long and don’t even notice I have it on. They also have ones that go on your ankle or shoe.
Your favorite cyclist needs something to fuel their rides. Hammer Gel
is a great way and by buying it in a jug and using a flask
, it’s good for the environment too.
The Pearl Izumi Zephrr Vest
is a great way to take off the chill. My windbreaker vest is one of my most used cycling items.
Using CO2 cartridges for flats during rides may not be the best for the environment but they sure make it easy to fix a flat. I only get a handful of flats even when I’m doing mega miles so it’s not that bad. There are CO2 inflators that are allow to control the pressure but I love the size and simpleness of the Microflate
A good floor pump
is a must for any cyclist. You can’t go wrong with a pump from Park Tools
. Some pumps have a single head that is supposed to work for both Presta and Shraedar valves. I’ve had a couple and weren’t happy with either one. I’d stick to a pump that has a dual head if you want both. I always use Presta valves on my bikes but my kid’s bikes have Shraedar
I have a couple pairs of Pearl Izumi ThermaFleece Knee Warmers
. They’re the perfect things for cool mornings or evenings. Some people prefer leg warmers
. I like the Pearl Izumi ThermaFleece ones because the light fleece on the inside really makes a difference in staying warm
A seat pack
is nice for carrying a multi-tool, spare tube and tire levers.
If none of the gear above is a good fit for your gift buying, check out the Cycling and Outdoor Gift Card Guide
