Christmas is right around the corner, meaning it’s time to spoil those closet to you. Shopping for gifts can be tricky, especially for those who already seem to have it all. If you need gift ideas for the avid cyclist in your life, look no further. Here are four great gift ideas that cyclists everywhere will love and appreciate.

Smart water bottle
Drinking the recommended amount of water every day can be difficult. Luckily, new smart water bottles make tracking your eater consumption much easier. There are a variety of these types of water bottles on the market; some light up to remind you to take a drink and others send you a notification. A smart water bottle is the perfect thing to bring along during a long ride, as staying hydrated is essential.

Bike lights
If you like to ride really early in the morning or late at night, fitting your bike with lights is vital. It will help you to see the road better, and it also helps motorists see you, helping to prevent accidents. Lights should be added to both the front and back of your bike to maximize safety. These lights even connect to an app on your smartphone, and will notify you if your bike has been moved without you and let you share feedback with transport planners.

Fitness tracker
There are numerous fitness trackers on the market these days, each serving their own purpose. Fitness trackers are a great gift for any fitness enthusiast, as they help them to track their exercise, monitor their heart rate, log their sleep and even keep track of how much water you drink in a day. The functionality of each tracker varies, so determine what features are the most valuable to your cyclist when making your purchase.

Rain jacket
The most dedicated cyclists don’t let bad weather stop them from a ride, which is why the one in your life would love a new raincoat. Look for one that is fully waterproof with taped seams and a zippered pocket to protect their belongings. Also be sure to look for a good that will allow a bike helmet to fit underneath. Because layering is often necessary, a fitted raincoat may not be the best option.

If your cyclist already has all of these items and you’re still stuck for gifts, offer to go on a ride with them! The company of a loved one on a long bike ride can be the greatest gift of all.
