The Holidays are upon us. That means things like time with the family, baking, travel and for our two-wheeling customers is means another year of making it hard on friends and family to find the right gift for them.
Cyclists can be an odd bunch to begin with and to the outsider the nuances of selecting gear as a gift can be daunting. This we made it simple with five things just about any rider can appreciate.
Fall and winter bring colder temperatures and shorter days so help that cyclist friend stay visible and comfortable on the road or trail this year.
Fingers and Toes, Gift Pack
Cyclists and runners may be one of the few demographics that actually appreciate the gift of socks. We’re not talking some tacky holiday themed cotton socks from the big box store. Active types will benefit from the quality and technical materials used in the two items in our "Fingers and Toes" gift pack.
Cover their hands and feet with high visibility knit gloves from DeFeet and great socks from Swiftwick. For those that are less inclined to make a statement with socks black is always a safe alternative. On the bike or on a run they will appreciate this simple gift.
Get Lit, Gift Pack
Our “Get Lit” gift pack is just the thing for that rider who pushes daylight. On the Capital Trail or commuting home by bike, they probably could stand to improve their visibility game. The VIS360 light system from Light and Motion is just the thing. The perfect headlight and taillight combo. A 120 lumen headlight is the perfect level to help light up the road, help motorists see you without being so bright to offend your fellow riders. It is lightweight and easily attaches to almost all helmets. The rear light draws from the same battery and quickly attaches to the back of the helmet. Pick up one of these and we’ll throw in one of our new Stargazer T-shirts. Printed with 3M reflective ink it’s eye catching in daylight and at night.
ATV, Gift Pack
For the more experienced rider or the novice looking to upgrade our ATV pack is perfect. Get them the best in class Giro Terraduro (or Terradura for the ladies) and we’ll throw in a pair of Shimano SPD pedals for FREE. The Terraduro is an all time favorite of the staff here. Equally at home on the mountain bike trails as on a commuter or touring bike, it combines a high quality upper of a true trail shoe with a durable Vibram outsole for the ultimate all terrain shoe.
Not sure any of that stuff will do the trick? No problem. You can gift them our most excellent tune-up package. Our Gold Tune-Up off season price is a killer deal. Set them up with a smooth running and clean bike and put a smile on their face.
Still not sure… there’s always a gift certificate. They can use it on anything in the store from inner tubes to craft beer. We’ll even mail it to them if you need.
