gift_idea_for_cyclists

 

If you got a rider in your close cycle to impress, then you maybe want to think about a really cool gift to leave him/her speechless. And to be honest with you, since November is already coming to an end, you should start making your orders now just to make sure you won’t find yourself trying to think of an excuse when Christmas day comes.

 

We have rounded up some great gift ideas for cyclists that we know they will make a really good impression to the people you love during the upcoming, December festivities. And believe us; these aren’t like the usual gifts you’ve been seeing around like cycling gear or sneakers.

 

Remember; you don’t have to act like an expert and go ahead and choose a gift while the person you’re trying to impress wants something completely different related to his specific cycling needs. Go for simpler, funnier and more unique choices instead.

 

 

Get a Strava Premium membership

Don’t know what Strava is? It’s okay, most of us didn’t know such name exists either…

 

Strava is the social media platform specifically designed for cyclists to use. This platform allows riders to chase Strava’s segment success which then is rewarded by Kudos from his/her followers.

 

By purchasing a Premium membership, the platform allows the rider to not only share his/her progress but gives the cyclist the option to use and enjoy the training aid tool. This tool has personalized coaching tips, offers advanced analytics etc.

 

 

An event entry

 

We know the person you’re trying to impress and make happy this Christmas might not have the chance or skills to become part of one of the World’s Grand Tours, but you can surely buy him/her an entry ticked for another meaningful and challenging cycling competition.

 

Of course, before doing so, you have to do your own research not only on the events available in a certain area, but you have to also get to know the race distance, the type of cycling it demand riders to perform and also, whether it is within your loved one’s capabilities and skills.
