Great Gifts for Cyclists

Still looking for that perfect gift for your cycling friends? Here are some suggestions:

Smartwool Socks
Keep you cool in the heat, warm in the cold, and help wick sweat and snow away from your feet. About $20/pair

Arm coolers

Remember those hot, humid summer riding days? I don't either. But I do remember that these made the sun feel less blistering, especially when soaked in cool water before wearing. About $25

Bike Bell

Necessary for weekend towpath rides. And how cool would that be in a serious club ride? Price: cheap.


Totally hip, completely unnecessary, eye-popping fun. About $60

Apres-Ride necessities:

Screen-printed beer glasses from Vital let you combine your two favorite pastimes. Prices vary

Snowbike, around $1000. For the global warming denial set.

For the cold weather challenged: a multi-session pass to Ohio Indoor Cycling
Bring your training indoors in a fun, social, and challenging setting. $150+

For the cyclist who has everything and knows it:
Shimano Di2 Electronic Shifting - You don't need it, but you know you want it. Pricey.

Singlespeed bike, just 'cause, you know...

Give a membership or trip gift certificate to Adventure Cycling

Membership to a local cycling club, such as Akron Bicycle Club or Summit Freewheelers

Great causes:
Donate on someone's behalf to People for Bikes. Save cycling in all its forms!

Best wishes for a happy holiday season!
