Christmas is now just round the corner, but there's still time to buy quality presents. If you're short of ideas for what to buy for the cyclist in your life this Christmas, you've come to the right place. 

The great thing about finding a gift for a cyclist is that it really broadens out the range of gifts you could potentially give this Christmas. From practical gifts to more ornamental and luxury items, you can really show some thought and originality.

Any element of high-quality cycling kit will make a cyclist's rides more enjoyable, whether it’s better bib shorts, jerseys or more breathable waterproof jackets (opens in new tab). Or for cyclists whose purpose is utility rather than recreation, more functional and easier to use panniers (opens in new tab), racks (opens in new tab) or more effective mudguards (opens in new tab) can make a whole world of difference.

With many of us still not feeling quite ready to return to the gyms just yet, indoor trainers (opens in new tab) and exercise bikes (opens in new tab) can help fit training into a busy lifestyle – making riding in better weather of the spring and summer more enjoyable once the seasons make their change.

To help you with your search, we’ve split this guide into categories including gifts for road riding, gifts to aid training and gifts for the home mechanic. We've included products across a wide range of price points, so it's easy to hone in on gifts that match your budget. You can use the navigation tab to hop around the page.
