Every year I put a women’s cycling Christmas gift guide together of things I like. I often include things I’m buying for myself for Christmas, or that I already own. I figure if I like them then other female roadies will too. So here’s 2015’s selection, complete with links for where you can buy them.
I’m a Christmas decoration tragic and my list wouldn’t be complete without a bike theme bauble. This year’s can be bought from UK website notonthehighstreet.com and they’re made of bamboo.
I’m also a scarf tragic and have a draw brimming over with plenty of them. This one appeals to me because the bikes are fairly subtle. Once again I found it on notonthehighstreet.com
Velocio is my favourite women’s cycling apparel site and I really love this bright green ‘Breton jersey’. Perfect for your Christmas rides.
I also have another draw full of cycling t-shirts and I’ve already placed my order for this one. My favourite colour also happens to be red so it ticks a couple of boxes for me. It’s also available in a couple of other colours from Apres Velo.
My list wouldn’t be complete without a bike and this happens to be the bike I bought for myself a couple of months ago. It has a real Christmas look about it – Specialized Diverge. You can’t however buy it online, you’ll have to head to your nearest Specialized dealer to find out more…
Men don’t seem to get cushions, but women love them, including me. This one is a gorgeous colour and would make a great gift for any female cyclist. Zazzle also has a huge range of other designs and colours to choose from.
I’ve actually bought this book but haven’t had a chance to read it yet. However it sounds great – inside stories about women’s cycling. You can buy it from lots of bookshops or online. I got mine from Booktopia.
