We've put together our Christmas Gift Guide of cool presents - we really want this Christmas.

We're supporting local by buying from Yorkshire suppliers or our local bike shops. Check out our wishlist and forward to your family...

Christmas Gifts for Cyclists - Garmin watch

Off-The-Bike Health Tracker

When you're training hard it's so important to track your fitness off the bike too. An ideal Christmas gift for cyclists is the Garmin Vivomove HR Activity Tracker; it includes heart rate monitoring, stress tracking and a relaxation timer, VO2 max and fitness age tracker, steps/calories/distance counter plus all the modern smart notifications such as texts and social media updates. 

Support your local bike shop who stocks Garmin. We'll be getting ours from Prologue in Harrogate. 

Christmas Gifts for Cyclists - Exposure 2019 Blaze rear cycling light

Peloton Mode Smart Light

This intelligent rear light is an ideal Christmas gift for cyclists who commute, ride with a group/club or do chain gang. What's cool is the Ambient Kinetic Technology (ReAKT) enables the light to automatically flare under braking. It also dims upon detection of a rider's front light behind you, to prevent a dazzling effect, but flares up as a beacon when you're at the back of the bunch.

Spatz Overshoes - Christmas Gifts for Cyclists


Spatz overshoes have evolved through countless cold wet miles in The Yorkshire Dales by local professional cyclist and NFTO team manager Tom Barras. Spatz are now widely seen across Yorkshire's roads throughout winter due to their innovative and unique design. A perfect Christmas gift for cyclists is the new Spatz Basez Winter Baselayer which we've heard great feedback about.

Le Col

Le Col Autumn/Winter Kit 

As our 2019 kit supplier we've been lucky enough to sample some of the new 2019 Autumn/Winter kit... and we love it! It's so well made, well fitting, insulated, warm, wind- and waterproof, but more importantly, it looks super-cool on the bike. We love the bib tights and the Pinnacle long-sleeve jersey. On our Christmas gift wishlist is the Sport Jacket.

Christmas Gift Guide - Giro Helmet

Giro Aether Helmet  

The Aether is Giro’s new road helmet, incorporating new 'MIPS Spherical' technology (two separate layers of foam held together with an elastomer attachment that rotate independently of a rider’s head). The Aether is a subtle improvement on the Synthe MIPS, with new 'MIPS Spherical' that takes the concept of protecting the brain from rotational forces to the next level. Giro claims MIPS Spherical is its best integration of MIPS yet in terms of comfort, ventilation, and aerodynamics.

Support your local bike shop who stocks Giro. We'll be getting ours from Prologue in Harrogate. 

Cold Bath Beer 

Post-ride Beers 

Light, easy drinking and so refreshing; a case of Cold Bath beer in the fridge is a must for winter warriors braving the elements. Sunday evenings aren't the same without a much-deserved beer on the sofa after a long ride, which is why we've included Cold Bath Brewing in our Christmas Gift Guide for cyclists.
