Tis the season to get your shopping done early fa la la la laaaa la la la la. Whether the folks you’re buying for are already big fitness enthusiasts or have simply clued you in to what their upcoming New Year’s resolutions might be, here’s some of our top gift picks for cyclists in your life!
Do you know someone who plans their vacations around cycling trails? If you have the ultimate outdoor cyclist on your list, snag them a hammock from Eagle’s Nest Outfitters that is light enough to tote along on the bike, and strong enough to energize them to keep going down the trail.
100copies is the brainchild of Singapore Creative Director Thomas Yang. An avid cyclist, he decided to combine two of his passions – bicycles and art – into 100copies. All of the products you see here are original designs created by him and are limited to, as the name suggests, 100 copies. Each piece of work will be watermarked, labeled with the title and edition number. As such, no two copies are ever completely identical.
For the cyclists in your life that are over 21 years of age, nothing is better after a long ride than a nice adult beverage. That’s where the Clif Family (yes, of Clif bars!) comes in. Their love of wine is linked to a love of adventure. The journey toward becoming vintners began years ago in Europe, where a long day of cycling ended with a leisurely meal and a great bottle of wine. Today, they seek to recreate those inspiring moments with their own line of grape goodness. Purchase their wine OR go all out and plan a surprise trip to Napa Valley for a world class cycling excursion and a tour of their cyclist themed wine tasting room. You can even snag a custom cycling jersey while you’re there as a souvenir. If heaven had a name…
Experience remarkable audio with the boomBOTTLE – Rugged Weatherproof Wireless Portable Speaker that fits right inside your bicycle water bottle cage. boomBOTTLE has been designed to bring entertainment to the outdoors. This wireless bluetooth media speaker is weatherproof and durable, allowing you to take your music virtually anywhere. The bottle connects to phones via Bluetooth and allows for a safe, wireless listening experience. Those group rides just got a whole lot more fun.

With tons of styles, colors, and sizes to choose from, you’re sure to have a hand up in your stocking stuffing.
Talk about some classy bike storage. Whether you live with a cyclist who has bikes…everywhere…or you just know someone who needs clever storage for theirs, you can’t go wrong with the decorative storage solution from Mission Bicycle Company that has been featured in design blogs everywhere in recent years. It doubles as a shelf and gets the bike up, off the floor, and away from the wall to avoid causing trouble. Ooo what sophisticated storage solutions you have.
With a range of resistance suited to advanced cyclists, the CycleOps Fluid2 bike trainer offers quiet operation and a smooth, roadlike feel that helps you keep up your bike routine during bad weather.
Delicious, good for you, and good for the planet. Grab a bundle of these for stocking stuffers and try a new take on the energy bar.

Revive yourself with a natural product that doesn’t contain ingredients that will fail you later on in the ride. Yum!
Isn’t everyone on your gift list an MVP of some sort? Hook them up all year long with a MapMyRide MVP subscription that will take their current MapMyRide data, save it, and provide them with an ad free experience, a personal coach right in their headphones, heart rate data tracking capabilities, and a LIVE tracking ability for you to watch their progress in real time during their next race. Not only that but our MVP’s receive expedited support for our service team and positive words of encouragement right in their earbuds. “Ooo 77 miles. Great work!”
