Gifts for Cyclists – General Tips and Advice
Before we get to the list, we’ll just mention that cycling gear and accessories are often the best gifts for cyclists – but bike gear can be tricky, so it’s a good idea to know what items they actually want or need at the moment before you go ahead and spend your money! (If you don’t know, just ask – you can bet they have a list!)
If you’re here on this page, though, we’ll presume that you have no idea what gear is on your favorite cyclist’s list – so we’ve focused particularly on bicycle-related presents that any cyclist would truly appreciate receiving, along with a few practical items that are likely to be useful for anyone who rides.
These gifts cover a wide variety of price ranges – so we’re sure you’ll find some great ideas for fun and unique bicycle-related gifts for all of the cycling fanatics in your life!
1) Bicycle Bookends
Bikes and books have a lot in common – they can both take a person on exciting journeys that thrill and inspire!
For cyclists who love both pedals and pages, these bicycle-shaped bookends make a perfect gift!
2) Garmin Edge 520 Bike Computer
For any cyclist who does not yet have a bike computer (or who doesn’t yet have a good one!), the Garmin Edge 520 would make a perfect birthday or Christmas gift. A GPS bike computer is an essential piece of equipment for any serious cyclist – and this excellent model has tons of features (including Strava integration).
