Best travel gear for cyclists


The pandemic has spurred a whole new crop of cyclists, with bike shops having been sold out in the past two years. So, chances are you have someone in your life who has jumped on the cycling bandwagon. Or, maybe you already have that bike aficionado you need to find a gift for. Of course, there is always some gear cyclists need when they are on the road that make the perfect gifts. Here are some ideas.

Echo buds

Echo Buds are the perfect gift for riders who enjoy listening to their podcast or favorite songs while riding a bike. The 2nd generation version features premium audio for crisp, balanced sound, wireless charging capabilities, upgraded microphones for better call quality, and hands-free access to Alexa. Available for $ 119.99 on Amazon.

For bike enthusiasts looking to ride in style, indulge in West Coast luxury with the Nobu Palo Alto Cycling Kit. Inspired by an onsite package that encourages guests to cycle through scenic Silicon Valley, these cycling kits come complete with a Nobu-branded jersey and bib shorts (with water bottles sold separately). Available in sizes for men and women. Starting at $ 220.

Hammerhead Karoo 2 bike GPS

If you have an avid cyclist in your life, look no further than the greatest gift they could unlock this holiday season: Hammerhead’s Karoo 2. The Olympics award winning cycling computer combines cutting edge technology with better maps and navigation, making it easier to navigate to a new destination. In addition to being named “best cycling computer”, the Karoo 2 has been praised by some of the best cyclists in the world, including gold medalist triathlete Flora Duffy and four-time Tour de France winner Chris Froome. Available from $ 399. But there is a limited-time promotion until November 30 where you can trade in your old bike computer and get cash for a new Karoo 2.

Portland Design Works Bottle Cage

Help the cyclist in your life add some spice to their bike Portland Design Works Bottle Cage. These single-sheet alloy cages come in the form of an otter, sparrow, owl, dog and cat. It works for many different shapes of water bottles. So you don’t have to worry about its adjustment. Go for the Cage Kit which comes with an equally lovely water bottle if you’re worried. Available for $ 25.

Vivo One water bottle

Speaking of water bottles, Vivo made the first stainless steel water bottle with a flow designed for cyclists. Designed like a traditional plastic bicycle water bottle, it is ideal for the gym, biking, running or to have on hand at work. But because it’s stainless steel, it doesn’t contain any chemicals found in your plastic bottle, resists mold, and leaves your water pure. Plus, the silicone coating helps grip when your hands are sweaty or prevents the bottle from rattling in a bottle cage on your bike. Available for $ 39.

VBT cycling holidays

What better gift to give than a real bike ride? VBT is known for its amazing bike trips like the Self-Guided Vermont Trip: Middlebury Countryside and Lake Champlain Coast or California Six Day Tour: Napa, Dry Creek Valley and the Pacific Coast Tour. The trips include accommodation, meals, bikes and unique experiences along the way. Consider rolling under a redwood canopy or stopping in charming New England towns. The prices vary.

Velocio LUXE Women’s Bra

The Velocio LUXE Women’s Bra is perfect for biking or even adding to your post-ride / recovery kit or comfortable for work from home. The company aimed to develop a bra specific to cycling, light and soft, while providing support. As a result, the bra has the same super-soft compression fabric with elastic microfiber straps and the softest trims they can find. Available for $ 69.

Crank Brothers Multi Tool 5

A cyclist always needs a multitool (in addition to several bikes). A lot can happen on the road away from a bike shop that requires immediate remedy. So, Crank Brothers Multi Tool 5 is perfect for the bike lover in your life. It comes with a set of wrenches, screwdrivers, chain tool, and more. And it’s super light, which makes it perfect as a Christmas stocking – priced at around $ 16.
