Women Who Cycle’s 2014 Christmas Gift Guide

Every year I compile a Christmas gift list of things I like, and that I think other female road cyclists will like as well. So here’s the 2014 edition.

Ginger & French mug

Bicycle mugThese fine bone china mugs from England are not cheap but they are a cut above you typical coffee mug. I’ve already placed my order and will enjoy a lovely cup of tea from mine when they arrive.

Gold bicycle pendant

NecklaceI already have one of these gold road bike pendants and always get comments about how nice it is and how appropriate it is for me to wear it. Once again it’s not cheap but it’s a quality item.

Women Who Cycle kit

Front viewEvery woman loves a new outfit and cycling kit is no exception. The Women Who Cycle custom kit is made by Tineli and is high quality, and best of all, it looks great.

Christmas decoration

Christmas decorationI love Christmas decorations and take great pride in my Christmas tree and its baubles. No tree is complete without a personal touch and something that represents a girl’s favourite pastime.

Nicole Cooke’s book

Welsh pro cyclist Nicole Cooke has penned an autobiography that’s a great read. Take with you on your summer holidays.

S-Works Amira frameset

S-Works Amira framesetThe S-Works Amira frameset is the ultimate women’s road bike (in my humble opinion) and if you buy her the frameset she can pick her own componentry and make it a one-off. It’s not cheap but I think the woman in your life is really worth it. Girls – you could always buy it for yourself for Christmas.

Specialized base layer

Specialized base layerBase layers are often overlooked by female cyclists but they are very effective underneath your favourite jersey, even in summer. Specialized has recently launched one that is available in both black and white from your local Specialized dealer.

 

Happy shopping.
