Many people think the challenge in gift buying for cyclists is that the cyclists has everything. Many of us do but there are certain things a cyclist can never have enough of. Then there are the things the cyclists’ wants but often won’t treat themselves to. Some of the items fall into both of the categories.

Cyclist Gift Ideas:

We’ll start with a cycling gift that makes a great stocking stuffer or gift, nutrition products. Nutrition products are gels/chewables, bars, drinks and supplements. Single serve nutrition items start at just over a dollar and progress on up from there. These products give the cyclist the energy they need to finish their ride. A cyclist can never have to much nutrition on hand. A favorite of our customers are the Honey Stinger waffles. You can mix and match the flavors and the brands to make your own little care basket of nutrition for the cyclist. My favorite way to gift nutrition is to create a “gift basket” using a water bottle as the “basket”.

Can you ever have to many pairs of socks? Sock technology has come a long way. They are an important element of the cyclist kit because they provide support for your feet and manage moisture. My favorite brand of socks by far is Swift Wick. They are a compression sock that offers unparallelled support and comfort for your feet. Read Ernest’s longer review here.
