Bicycle travelers are often very picky about their gear. When it comes to gifts for a cycling outdoor lover is hard to figure out what will be appreciated. The lack of space in the panniers and weight issue may result in unnecessary items being left at home.
The cycling gift ideas proposed here take this into account, so we featured only stuff that almost every bicycle traveler will bring along for a long tour.
If you know someone who’s planning to start bicycle touring but hasn’t geared up with the essentials yet, take a look at our series about bicycle touring equipment and find some inspiration!
Finding a set of panniersunder the Christmas tree might push someone who always wanted to travel by bicycle but hasn’t done that yet, to finally go fulfill her/his dream.
For the more adventurous ones, preparing for an expedition in remote areas of the world, a water purifier is a great gift. No need to worry anymore about water supplies and always stay hydrated while camping in the wild.
Everybody uses battery packs nowadays, they are the best way to keep the juice up on your smartphone. Bicycle travelers are akin to drain their phone batteries pretty quickly, using navigation apps. A good battery pack is sure to be a welcomed Christmas present for a cyclist.
Not every bicycle traveler starts cycling straight out of his doorstep, many prefer to fly to far-away destination and then cycle there. While flying with a cardboard box is the ordinary, it may quite often result in some damage to the beloved bicycle. That’s why sturdy bike bags are a super cool gift for every cyclist willing to explore the globe with her/his bicycle.
Although this may come as a shocking truth, many cyclists also own a car. They might use this, for example, to reach a nice place and bike there, maybe with their whole family. A bike rack for cars is a cool gift idea, and it will look huge under the Christmas Tree.
Not only might cyclist have a car, they may as well have kids! And what do you do when you have kids and want to go out for a ride? Leave them to the grandparents? Why not take them with you instead. Bike seats and trailer are amazing gits for mommy and daddy cyclists.
Another must-have piece of camping equipment. Unless you’re a feline you’ll need some help to see in the dark. Headlamps are definitively the best solution, as they leave your manipulative limb free to manipulate whatever.
In the era of global video sharing, almost every cyclist wants an action cam. While a GoPro might be expensive, there are many more models out there. If already owning one, there are many cool accessories that might be a cool add-up.
