Spot-on Christmas gifts for bike lovers you never even knew they wanted.
Whether your friend is the trendy urban biker or likes to sweat it out on long-haul rides, buying a Christmas gift for a cyclist is easier than it looks – even if you have no idea about the cycling scene yourself.
Cycling has exploded in popularity over the last few years, both as a cheap and healthy commute and as a high-intensity workout. Hunting for a related product is now easier than ever.
Shopping List: Where to buy cycling gifts
How do I choose a Christmas gift for a cyclist?
The choice is (almost) endless, so it’s important to figure out what you’re looking for.
Before you get started, do your research to see what your cyclist friend already has. No good buying a brand new post and saddle if your giftee has perfectly moulded top-of-the-line Brooks already. Also, think about your budget. While a new set of wheels can be a perfect addition to a cycle lover’s collection, it can set you back hundreds or even thousands of dollars.
If you’re not happy to fork out that much, think about high-quality accessories instead. Extras such as all-weather clothing, safety accessories and handy gadgets to make the ride more convenient will always be appreciated.
