Inexpensive Cycling Gifts

Guest Author - Sharry Miller

I donít know about you, but I find it harder every year to buy gifts for the adults in my life. Iíd love it if someone would compile a gift list for each of their interests or hobbies so Iíd have some ready-made gift ideas. This article is intended to do just that for the cyclist in your life for whom you just need to buy a little something. Many of these items are the types of things that even if they already have one, a spare doesnít hurt, so donít be afraid of buying something they already have. Most of these items are available at any bike shop or cycling website.

Multi-function Mini-tool
As its name implies, the bicycle multi-function mini-tool has several tools in one handy item. This tool is a must-have for every cyclist so that they can make common repairs on the road. The only thing it doesnít have is the mechanic!

Tire Tube Patch Kit
Every cyclist should carry a tube patch kit for repairing a flat on the trail. The contents of these kits do run out or get old, so a new kit is always welcome.

Tire Pump
Another necessary tool that every cyclist should carry is a tire pump. It doesnít do any good to fix a flat if you canít pump up your tire. Because pumps can be specific to Schrader or Presta valves, be sure to find out what type your cyclist has or buy a pump that works with both.

Cycling Socks
Cycling socks, while also useful, are really just pure fun. They come in a wide variety of colors and styles, and usually have nifty graphics on the cuffs. My favorites are bright and silly, but more sedate ones are also available.

Water Bottles
Every cyclist needs water bottles, and with recent health concerns over plastic bottles containing BPA thereís a good chance the cyclist in your life needs new ones. Fun colors and designs abound, so pick one or two theyíll really enjoy.

Cycling Jewelry and Such
A number of on-line stores such as Team Estrogen, Terry Bicycles, REI and others are now selling cycling themed pendants, earrings, bracelets, picture frames, coffee mugs and other such fun items. Some show bicyclists having fun, while others are designed to look like theyíre made from bike chains or sprockets. Youíre sure to find something for everyone.

Cycling Books
Whether technical tomes about bike mechanics or training or travelogues designed to inspire a nomadic life, thereís sure to be a book out there to please your loved one. If you donít know which one to pick, go for a gift card to a favorite book store and specify that she should indulge in a cycling fantasy.

By no means is this a comprehensive list, but it is a fun sampling of inexpensive gifts the cyclist in your life will love. Now get out there and spoil her!
