None, probably. But a gift is greatly appreciated by the receiver regardless of the size, shape, and even price.For many of us who are still in limbo on what to give to our cyclist friend or family member, we have rounded up wonderful gift ideas that they will truly like.
Compact coffee maker
Well, this is a hit-two-birds-with-one-stone kind of gift for the coffee lover cyclist. Many cyclists ride at early dawn and stay somewhere for a well-deserved coffee break. So, why not give a compact coffee maker that is easy to carry but does the job well. Who wouldn’t love a portable coffee maker that makes good brew? Just imagine sipping coffee while adoring the view.
Cycling to destinations will entail crossing long roads and highways. And for the not-so-gifted in navigation, the perfect gift to give is a navigation device that gives you directions and data without fuss. And that can be attached to the handlebars. Pick one that is waterproof and shockproof, and has an optimized display for both direct sunlight and darkness.
The adventures on the two wheels are made special if caught on cam. This is great for cyclists who are also vloggers or simply those who want to document and relive all the amazing rides. There are tons of action cameras in the market to choose from and have great specifications such as waterproof, slo-mo, live streaming, stabilization, wide-angle, etc.
Smartphones are also great navigation devices with ever-dependable applications such as Waze and Google Maps. Get a smartphone holder that can securely place the phone without the fear of it falling off, especially in bumpy terrains. There are holders that are compatible with wireless charging systems and have an additional dock for a light or action camera.
Answering phone calls or listening to music while cycling can be a breeze with high-quality wireless headphones. Although we suggest that when cycling, you just focus on the road and do not entertain other tasks, but a good wireless headphone is a great accessory to own. Especially when you are using directional apps with voice-over options, so instead of looking at the monitor of your navigational device or smartphone, you can clearly hear the directions through the headphones. A waterproof and shockproof headphones will do the trick. Pick a model that has a battery life that can last for hours.
