It’s that time of year again! The Holidays are just around the corner and it’s time to start dropping some serious hints to loved ones or begin to think about what this year’s cool gifts for cyclists are. Here at CCSD we’re one step ahead and we’ve put together our top picks for cycling related gifts with a special section for the ladies too.
Gifts under $25
When it’s just too cold to think about riding outside, reach for this for some good old fashioned board game hilarity.
$15 – $24: First to the Line Cycling Card Game
Thanks to Seth Haskell for bringing this to camp this year. Great game!
$25: Cycling ‘Sportula’
The laser cut design + a bottle opener on the end makes this a winner for us!
$8: Crystal Bike Key Ring
A great little gift for under $10.
$24: Bike Chain Tealight holders
A great conversation piece at dinner…because we don’t talk bike stuff nearly enough!
$25: Neon Glow lights
If the first question you ask is “how much do these weigh”, they’re not for you!
$2.25: Gift Wrap
Wrap it all up in this cycle themed wrapping paper
$15 – $20: Road ID
Don’t leave home without it. Road ID shows all your emergency contact and medical information.
$18: The Tour is Won on the Alpe
Classic photography & classic racing. A great gift for any cyclist who has either ridden or dreams of riding Alpe d’Huez.
$1 – $24: Action Wipes
As Martha says; “your face is not a baby’s butt.. why wipe it like one”. Action Wipes are perfect for a shower on the go. We always keep these in the car for after a ride.
Gifts under $150
$80: The Vel-eua
We haven’t tested this but if you know a cyclist who has trouble reaching down and taking a water bottle from a cage this could be the answer for them.
Available from cycling hub: http://www.bicyclinghub.com/showers-pass-veleau-42-hydration-system.html
$88: Chain Bowl
A cool design for a bowl. Don’t try eating your oatmeal from this though. Do you think you’re supposed to lube it after washing?
$34: Bottle Bike Lock
No more locks around your waist or weighing your bag down
$27: Bike Trail Chalk Kit
One for the Kids… or maybe the CCSD router!
Gifts over $150
