Great Gifts to Get For the Avid Cyclist in Your LIfe

Fit Gift Guide: Avid Biker

Your shopping days until Christmas are numbered. So to spare you some of the last-minute shopping stress the Sugar sites are creating ever-helpful gift guides for all sorts of people in your life.

Ever since Lance won the Tour de France, and then won it again and again . . . you get my point, biking as a sport has taken off in the US. Here are a few gift ideas for the biker in your life.

  • Even though cyclists are not technically on their feet, they still need to take care of their tootsies. These socks by Defeet will definitely do the trick. Padded where necessary, yet made of wicking material, these socks are a must have for any avid biker.
  • Inflate tires quickly with the Genuine Innovations' sturdy, tiny, easy-to-use threaded CO2 cartridge valve that works with both Presta and Schrader valves. This makes dealing with a flat tire so much easier!
  • Pearl Izumi knows biking gear and this jacket is both wind and water resistant. Plus it has zip-off sleeves so it easily converts into a vest for extra versatility. It comes in Screaming Yellow for high visibility, as well as black, blue and deep red.

you're lucky. I've blown three tires in one ride before!! the inflators are handy, but its super important to a) practice and b) make sure that you have the tube and tire perfectly in place before you inflate. it goes so fast that if the tube is hanging out at all, it will blow. I've blown three or four tubes using co2. i keep the co2 in my seat pack that is always on the bike, but when i go for a multi hour ride that will take me into desolate locations, I always bring a mini pump (and two tubes). once you get good with it though, you can fix a flat in under five min.

As a dedicated bike rider, I keep one of these inflaters with me when I ride; it would make a huge difference if I punctured a time out in the middle of nowhere! (Fortunately for me, my only flat tire so far happened right next to a gas station with an air pump.)
