A Cyclist’s Ultimate Christmas List

Where has 2019 gone? Last New Year seems like only yesterday, but already it’s Christmastime again! If you’ve spent the past year cycling your way to adventure, you’ll be wondering which items to add to your Christmas list that might help to take your hobby up a gear. That’s why we’ve come up with five of the top gifts that should be on any cyclist’s ultimate Christmas list!

1. Pedro’s Chain Pig II

Who wouldn’t want an easier life, especially when it comes to cleaning mucky chains? Pedro’s Chain Pig II should give you just that! Simply attach the machine to your chain, fill with 30ml of degreaser, and spin the chain through it. After rinsing it with water, you’ll be able to stand back and marvel at your shiny new chain. Simple!

2. Strava Summit membership

As the saying goes, if your ride isn’t on Strava, did you even ride? Why not get even more immersed in the GPS tracking app with Strava Summit? Choose from the Training, Safety or Analysis Pack depending upon your specific goals and requirements (or get all three). Using the app can help to keep you motivated, connected, as well as training more consistently.

3. Granite Rock n Roll Toolkit

Everyone loves a good set of tools, and the Granite Rock n Roll Toolkit is just that! It might be small, measuring in at just 130mm by 50mm, but the kit is full of tough and precise equipment. Containing a mini ratchet, extension rod and 9-bits, the small pouch contains essential tools for both emergencies and regular bike maintenance alike. Perfect for when you’re out and about!

4. Overshoes

Maintain toasty toes all winter with a pair of overshoes! These Gore Bike Wear Windstopper Softshell Overshoes are our pick! With their snug fit and wind-proof, water repellent design, they’ll help protect road cyclists from the elements – whatever the weather! You can also get them in fluorescent yellow for greater visibility, so everyone will definitely be able to see you coming!
