For some, cycling is a hobby. For others, it’s a sport. For many, it’s a passion.
We have a few great ideas for those passionate riders on your gift list to help you spread some joy this holiday season.

This is Garmin’s top-of-the-line bike computer, and one of the very best available anywhere. It is compact, light, rugged, easy-to-use, and it connects with just about everything, from smartphones and wi-fi to ANT+ sensors and third-party apps. There’s not enough room here to list everything it can do.
Nobody actually WANTS to buy a bike lock. Especially not an expensive one. But if you’ve invested deeply in your bike, you never want to walk away from it without knowing it’s protected. That’s why the ABUS SmartX bike lock makes such a great gift. It connects wirelessly to your smartphone, making it a breeze to lock and unlock. And anyone who tampers with it will be rebuffed by a 100-decibel alarm.
Even the most fervent rider can’t ride ALL the time. Even if they want to. So, for those brief pauses in between rides, here’s a book that keeps the ride going. Featuring some of the world’s best bike trails and scenic routes, this awesome guide is perfect for any avid cycling enthusiast.
Bikes don’t have a lot of storage options, and it’s really difficult to find one that you love. These awesome stem bags from Farewell are bound to please the cyclist in your life. Each Farewell stem bag is made-to-order in New Mexico, customized to your exact preferences with a wide variety of color options. Plus, it is rugged enough that it may well be the last stem bag they will ever need.
This is a fantastic gift idea for cyclists who love music. Instead of plugging your ears (which can be unsafe in traffic) Shokz OpenRun transmits sound via a unique bone conduction method that keeps your ears open and free to hear the world around you. These wireless bluetooth headphones are sweat resistant, and include a headband and built-in microphone that allows you to take calls as you ride.
The GoPro Max is a great gift for anyone who spends a lot of active time outdoors, especially cyclists. The ultra-light and easy-to-use mountable video camera allows riders to capture the beauty and grandeur of their most epic rides – for sharing or simply for posterity. It’s also got about a billion other uses.
Here’s a great, practical gift that can really come in handy on long rides. Knog’s super-bright LED headlights are available in three different luminosities, suitable for commutes, off-road, and mountain trails. The Knog PWR is waterproof and durable, but its coolest feature is that it also works as a power bank, ready to give your phone a little extra juice while you’re on the road. It can be a real life-saver
Hopefully, this guide will spark some inspiration to help you find the ideal gift for the cyclist or cyclists in your life. Here’s wishing you an incredible and joyous holiday season!
