Cycling gifts for a cyclist at Christmas

Having to get gifts at Christmas is a pain, how to find the time to get something more meaningful that just a gift voucher? If you have a friend, relative, boyfriend or girlfriend who cycles then you’re in luck because buying gifts for cyclists is easy. Here are my top recommendations for cycling gifts:

1) Cycling books – I have a big list of them here but the two I can really highly recommend are Why don’t you fly? Backdoor to Beijing by bike and Moods of Future Joys by Alastair Humphreys. I thoroughly enjoyed both. Gift price less than £10

2) Cycling Computer – bit more expensive but very cool cycling gift – especially if its wireless! Gift price: £35 – £40

3) Cycle Jacket – The DHB Amberley is good for keeping the rain out and comes at a very good price.  Gift price: £60

4) Repair book – If you are buying a gift for someone that has just started cycling then a bicycle repair book will save them a lot of money in repair fees and will keep their bike running smoothly. I highly recommend The Bike Book which is easy to follow and has plenty of illustrations. Gift price: £10

5) Bicycle lightsThese bike lights by Raleigh offer great value and are come highly recommended. If you are looking to spend a little bit more on this gift then the Nightrider Ultrafazer is worth the money. Gift price: £12

6) Magazine subscription – I often read Cycling Plus but there are plenty more to choose from and it makes for a well thought out gift. Gift price: £35

Update: Also take a look at my updated 2009 Christmas gifts ideas!

I hope you find the perfect cycling gifts, I know I would be a happy cyclist with any of the ones listed here! Have a Merry Christmas and enjoy the holidays!
