Buying for someone that already has everything can be hard but this year we’ve got you covered. Scroll down to find out our top Christmas gift ideas for cyclists.
With hundreds of bike events already planned in the UK and around the world next year, why not book tickets to watch or pay an event entry to take part? Although the Tour de France may be slightly optimistic there’s tons of other choices plus it’s a great chance to get away for a weekend. Prices can vary for cycle events so this type of gift can suit everyone’s budget.

Video Helmet Cameras
Video helmet cameras are great to capture journeys of adventurous riders. Technology has become more advanced these days meaning the quality, memory and battery life of helmet cameras are better than ever before. Whether it’s being used for filming epic rides or keeping footage of evidence, having a helmet camera is a great way to collect souvenirs of memorable experiences. With so many helmet cameras available on the market we advise on taking a look at this guide from Cycling Weekly to find the right one.
