Buying Presents For Cyclists Can Be A Nightmare

Buying gifts for someone that has a passion can be a struggle. We all appreciate it when someone buys us a present which is applicable to our hobbies and cyclists are no exception with our unique gift needs.

Below are a number of gift ideas which will help you buy the perfect Christmas Gift for a cyclist, Birthday present or simply just a treat for your partner to make them feel special whatever the season.

Also featured are some great inexpensive cycling related stocking fillers.

The Secret Gift For The Cyclist In Your Life. Chamois Cream

If you want to show that special person that you have done some research and chosen something that only a true cyclist would know about- consider buying some quality Chamois Cream.

Chamois Cream is a lubricant specifically designed for a cyclist's delicate region which is applied to the padded area of cyclist’s shorts. It aides comfort over long rides and prevents against saddle sores and inflammation.

For The Office Based Cyclist- Cufflinks

Cyclists that wear formal office attire on a regular basis with double cuff shirts will appreciate a set of cufflinks that show their passion. It is also great for someone that wants to add character for a wedding outfit or simply for a night out.

These are a great christmas present for cyclists as they are relatively inexpensive while being unique and will last for years. A great unique Christmas present for the fashion conscious cyclist in your life that will last for years and never lose their novelty value so represent an excellent stocking filler for cyclists.

Is Your Cyclist A Big Kid At Heart?

To commemorate the London 2012 Olympics Scalextric have launched a Team GB Velodrome Scalextric electric cycling set so you can pretend to be Bradley Wiggins, Mark Cavendish, Geraint Thomas or Sir Chris Hoy at home. You could even paint the riders if you'd rather be a different rider.

This would make a great present if the cyclist in your life is a big kid at heart. And it would make a fantastic Christmas present for cyclists. We have that need for speed that a scalextric set can indulge.

A Stocking Filler For Bike Racers. The Best Training Book

Cyclists like to read about cycling. Racers like to read about racing. Joe Friels' "Cyclists Training Bible" is a fantastic training resource which helps cyclists analyze their performance and training to improve their training. The Book is easy to read, to the point and gives practical advice to help the cyclist develop their skills.

The best time to buy this book is during autum/ winter so it would make a great Christmas present or birthday present too.

The Cyclist's Training Bible IS Some Great Holiday Reading

Help The Cyclist In Your Life Look Good.

Every cyclist likes to look good while on the bike. If you're looking at buying them something clothing related have a look at the style of clothing they normally wear. My advice is to keep things simple and steer clear of cycling shorts and jerseys as these can be a very personal choice. I find it is great to keep to buying accessories.

Socks are a great gift idea for the cyclist in your life. Generally we moan at receiving socks for Christmas however cycling specific socks show you have paid attention to your loved one's hobbies. Generally white socks are preferred by cyclists however a splash of colour is always a good addition.

Socks are a great present all year round. Just have a look in your bicycling lover's waredrobe to make sure you match their current kit. If you're not sure go for white- you can never fail with white cycling socks.

Cycling Accessories-Socks Can Make Great Gifts

The ULTIMATE Gift For The Cyclist In Your Life.

If anyone every bought me a GPS system I would be the luckiest cyclist in the world. GPS systems are a great training tool for cyclists to view and download their rides and training information as well as pre programming training routes.

GPS systems are expensive so best left for extra special presents or amazing Christmas presents.

A Gift for the Safety Conscious?

Buy your partner a new helmet and think about their safety on the road. Some great options if you click and look at Uber Cool Cycle Helmets. Just be sure to check what size their current helmet is. If you're unsure colour wise stick to white as it goes with pretty much anything.

Happy Shopping

The cyclist in your life will be greatly impressed you've purchased something which is related to their passion.

Happy shopping
