10 Holiday Gifts for Cyclists
Shopping for the bike lover in your life? Or are you a cyclist making a shopping list for the holidays? We can help! Read on for a list of our staff’s favorite cycling gifts for the holiday season.
The Feed Zone Cookbook
We all have cookbooks at home, and chances are your hard-core cyclist friend has one or two low-cal cookbooks on his or her shelf. But what sets The Feed Zone apart from other healthy cookbooks is that it was created specifically for athletes. Endurance athletes require a very particular diet in order to perform at their best, and the recipes in The Feed Zone cater directly to that. Enjoy these savory and salty meals to keep you in tip-top shape!

RevoLights Bike Lights
Any cyclist requires a bike light/tail light for safe nighttime riding. The revolutionary design of RevoLights is a sleek, modern, and ultimately safer alternative to the traditional lamp and taillight on your bike.

Superfly Women’s Bib Shorts
Has your super-cyclist girlfriend ever complained about how her bib shorts are absolutely terrible for when she has to take a *ahem* nature-break? Fear not, the complaining can now end! The Superfly bib short is bathroom-break friendly for all those lady cyclists out there thanks to the hidden zipper in the back and the easy-on / easy-off fabrics! This crucial innovation is sure to make all the ladies happy during their après-velo cocktail hour.

Cageless Water Bottle
I can’t be the only one who finds it difficult to finagle my water bottle out of its cage for a quick sip while riding. For those of us out there who feel this way, the Cageless Water Bottle made by Fabric is here to save the day. The bottle mounts directly to your frame on superlight weight studs so it does away with the clumsiness of a traditional cage. To facilitate the ease of quenching their mid-ride thirst and to eliminate the eyesore of a cage, this gift is perfect for the cyclist in your life.
$20.00 from Fabric
Keyless Bike Lock
The revolution of unlocking your bike without keys or passwords is finally upon us. With the BitLock app, you just walk up to your bike, tap a button on your BitLock, and unlock your bike without even having to remove your phone from your backpack. But wait, your phone died? Don’t fret—if your phone goes kaput, you can still unlock your bike by punching in an established 4-digit code on the lock.
$139.00 from Bitlock
Wine Holder for Bikes
All of us have wanted to make that amazing picnic lunch, hop on our bikes, and ride to a beautiful park to enjoy a sunny afternoon. Like me, you may be asking yourself what is missing from this dream sequence. The answer is: wine. It was nearly impossible to carry wine with you on a bike without the chance of it shattering, but I’m happy to announce that is no longer the case. The Wine Holder has leather straps and attaches right to your top tube, making for easy and safe transportation. So go ahead, buy Men’s Society’s Wine Holder and make the nightmare of having a cracked bottle of Sauvignon Blanc a thing of the past.
$57.58 from Men’s Society
Wide Path Camper
We see campers all the time on the highway attached to some large SUV and have a little bit of wanderlust in us. Thankfully we now have fully functional campers we can just hook right up to our bikes and ride off into the sunset! The lightweight Wide Path Campers have a durable hard-shell exterior that protects the shockingly spacious interior and all your belongings inside. The comfortable bed is built for two and the convertible space fits four adults for dining. Treat yourself to a miniature getaway in your own backyard—you deserve it.
$4100.00 from Wide Path Camper
If you want to bring virtually anything with you on a ride, you will need to have a backpack. The best option for this is to buy a backpack specifically built for cyclists, and the top of the line is the Black Kite Cycling Backpack. A pocket along the back of the bag is perfect for holding your phone, keys, etc, so you have easy access to your small items while riding! The front cross straps are great for holding larger items, and on the inside of the bag is a neoprene divider and small pocket. If you’re a commuter cyclist or weekend rider—add this to your list!
$105.00 from Black Kite
FLYWHEEL Gift Card
During the winter months, we all tend to get a little lethargic. Help your buddies beat the winter blues by keeping up with their cycling regimen and give them a FLYWHEEL Gift Card! Not only is it sad and cold to be road cycling with all the snow around you, but it can also be dangerous. Going to some spin classes is the perfect way to stay fit (and warm) while keeping safe from snowy and icy roads.
DuVine Cycling Tour
This is the ultimate gift for cyclists. There honestly is no better gift than spending time with someone you love while doing something exciting and luxurious. Give your husband the dream vacation he’s always wanted by going to Provence for some breath-taking views and killer climbs. Surprise your girlfriend with a trip to Verona + Lake Garda so she can be pampered while enjoying fresh pasta. Blow your kids away with a family trip to Sonoma and cruise through the giant redwoods and along the coast of the Bodega Bay together.

No matter where you end up choosing to go, the memories you make on your DuVine tour will last a lifetime, and that’s the real gift.
