Best Christmas Gifts for Cyclists

‘Tis the season to be on two wheels (and be jolly) because a rider never stops riding, even in rain or snow. So, for the cyclist in your life, or if you’re a cyclist and want to drop a few hints, we’ve put together nine of the best Christmas gifts for cyclists.

In no particular order…

Studded Tyres

If you know someone who cycles through the most gruelling of weather conditions – whether to get to work, or just because – make sure they’re prepped for winter riding. Studded bicycle tyres, like these from Evans Cycles, provide enough grip for snowy conditions. Safety first, guys!

Garmin Edge 520

This is one of the best GPS devices of 2016, with rave reviews in every cycling mag. It’s packed full of the latest features, including in-ride challenges through Strava live segments, full colour display, and advanced analysis to help nail those personal bests! It’s also returned to button control rather than touchscreen, which many Garmin fans will appreciate.

Kinetic Road Machine 2.0 Smart Trainer

The Kinetic is a reasonably affordable smart trainer – the best at its price range and ideal for cyclists who want to maintain a good level of training during the winter months. It allows Bluetooth connection to most smartphones and the precision-calibrated fluid resistance unit replicates outdoor conditions accurately for the perfect workout.

National Cycle Network ‘Sponsor A Mile’

‘Sponsored miles’ can help the National Cycle Network keep your favourite (or your recipient’s favourite) cycle routes open in the UK. A great gift for cyclists who already have all the gear – every donation comes with an official certificate and fridge magnet.

Blaze Bike Light

For cyclists who brave the dark, give them the gift of light. The Blaze Bike Light not only lights their way as they cycle all hours, but it also projects an image of a bike onto the road ahead and flashes to alert other road users. Output is up to 300 lumens and it features an extra-long battery life.

AfterShokz TREKZ Bluetooth Headphones

We don’t endorse cycling with headphones, especially on cold winter nighta when you need all your concentration. But if you do like some music on the road, then these are the best Bluetooth headphones around. Zero wires, undisrupted connection, and bone-conduction technology to ensure you can still hear road traffic. Ultra-safe and can also be used as a hands-free phone kit (that’s two gifts in one if you ask us).


A handy rear light that also doubles up as a camera. The Fly6 means that you can film your entire journey just for kicks, or check out what other road users are doing behind you the whole time. It films at 1280 x 720 resolution and the rear light offers four different intensity settings.

Apple Watch 2

The second generation Apple Watch is even more useful to cyclists than the first! Not only is it waterproof, but it now comes with GPS nav and an integrated heart sensor – so cyclists can say goodbye to that uncomfortable chest strap! Plus.... it's an Apple Watch. Just gorgeous.

A Luxury Cycling Holiday

Last but not least, if you’re really looking to impress your loved one, a luxury cycling holiday could be the perfect surprise on Christmas Day. We’ve teamed up with cycling coaching company Rowe & King and the 5* Jumeirah Port Soller Hotel & Spa in Mallorca to bring you The Collective Coaching experience of a lifetime; an exclusive 5 days (4 nights) of daily guided rides through the beautiful and formidable Serra de Tramuntana Mountains. Book now for travel dates in 2017.
