Christmas Presents for Any Cycling Enthusiast

By Bonnie Friend

Christmas is coming, so now’s the time to make that list and get it right because naughty or nice, there’s a world of gifts and gadgets out there that all cyclists are hoping to find wrapped under the tree this year.

Recycle and Bicycle Recycled Bike Chain Cufflinks – £16

Take a little piece of your cycling passion with you wherever you go with cufflinks made from reclaimed chain links. On board with the increasing awareness for ethical product manufacturing and upcycling (see what we did there), not only does this put old bicycle parts to excellent use, but they also come in a recycled box for good measure.

Leather Bike Saddle Bag – £40

Bringing a little bit of old-school style to every commuting cyclist’s day, this leather bike saddle bag is both handy and beautifully made. Made from a tough buffalo hide, it’s pretty and it’s durable as well, and it’s big enough to take all those must-haves including a phone, a puncture repair kit, a pump, and a wallet. To top it all off, you can even have it personalised.

Engraved Cyclists Brown Leather Belt – £30

Versatile and stylish, this leather belt engraved with cyclists is really easy to wear. Available in a variety of sizes, you can also have it delivered in a gift box with an ivory ribbon and a gift tag.

Fox’s Proframe helmet – £225

Taking things up a notch for passionate mountain bikers, Fox’s Proframe helmet is the ultimate player in modern lightweight protection. Obviously, all cyclists should wear a helmet but when it’s off road it’s a whole new ball game. This is one of the new kind of full-face helmets offering protection as well as ventilation – perfect for whole days in big mountains.

Festive cycling socks – £10

Is it really Christmas if you don’t get a pair of socks? Cycling socks are no laughing matter and British brand Morvelo are loud and proud about that. Available in a variety of patterns, they provide warmth and lower-leg protection with reinforced heels and toes – perfect for winter cycling.

Crankbrothers Y15 multitool – £34.99

Every cyclist’s best friend, this clever and compact multi-tool has everything you need for roadside or trailside repairs. It includes hex keys of different sizes, flathead screwdrivers, Torx keys, spoke wrenches, a patch kit, and a chain tool. What more could you want?
