Cycling Tips

13 Things to Gift a Cyclist Before Christmas!

We all grew up listening to stories about Santa Clause. Well, now as we are grown-ups, we learned the truth. Santa is just a fairy tale. However, there are our loved ones who play that role in our lives.

Gifting us with presents every now and then. They know your taste and likings, don’t they? Calling these people your Santa isn’t really a bad idea. Especially if they know about your love for cycling.

And with the Christmas season around the corner, ‘ek Gift toh banta hain boss’!

While we have certainly worked our way to collate a list for you, hinting it subtly to your loved ones is your part of the job 😉

So without any further adieu, let’s run through the gift ideas!

1.Ass Savers:

Ass Savers are essentials that we often don’t give importance too. Having these installed on your bike will make you enjoy your ride without messing your uniform.

 

2.Books:

Cyclists usually like books, beer, coffee and bikes and bikes and more bike! 

Ha Ha Ha, we even like accessories!

None the less, we also like reading more about cycling and cyclist across the globe, and their achievements. 

Here’s our list of the best cycling books to read!

 

3.Membership  (Zomato and Doolally):

Besides cycling, exploring new routes and making new friends, there are two more things we like. 

Food and Beer!

And what better than buying Zomato gold membership for a cycling friend or a yearly membership and the famous Doolally?

You decide what your cycling friend loves, more food or more beer?

Or maybe even both;)

4. Muc-off kit:

A bicycle is the pride of every cyclist. 

And keeping his/her pride in top-notch condition isn’t always easy. 

Some stains just won’t go on a vacation, even with Christmas and new year around!

So what do you do?

You gift them the Muc-off cleaning kit!

5.Cycling computer:

Well, you already might be having one for quite sometime, but there’s always an opportunity for you to upgrade or just get a better one.

Well, you can’t always be high and ride your bike, right? To keep things simple and happening, there’s always coffee.

10. Indoor trainer:

It’s cold outside, and getting up could be a task and riding outdoors can be another. 

Get someone to get you a home trainer and you are sorted for the next and the next and the next winter;)

 

11. Tyres:

Last but not the least, all this riding is going to burn those tyres. So a present like tyres could do the trick. 

 

12.Velocrush tee shirt: INR 495

We don’t only ride bikes.

We live, dream and think about cycling.

    It depends on where you live. Like me, I live in San Francisco and they have BIG hills. I would prefer a light road bike with gears. If you live in a area where they have not many hills. I would consider a single speed. Price on the other hand, gears are more likely to be more expensive. While single is cheaper. As for reliability, a single speed wins hands down. Why? Because single speed has less components, so mechanical failure is unlikely. If something goes wrong with a gear bicycle, you would most likely spend a large amount of $$$ to replace it or get it fixed. All in all, I would still prefer a geared bicycle if money isn’t an issue and you’re on long trips. A single speed if you’re in a flat recreational city where there rarely are hills, riding short trips.
