Lists are all the rage this time of year and we have compiled a doozie for you. The following are seven cycle-centric gift ideas that would be almost as fun to give as they would be to receive this holiday season.
Light & Motion Urban 500 Headlight, Cygolite Hotshot Pro 150 taillight – This time of year in the Pacific Northwest it seems like it gets pitch dark just about early afternoon. If you’re a bike commuter or you plan on getting any riding in after work, you’re going to want good lights. According to the folks at wirecutter.com these front and back models give you the most bright for your buck.
Drysure Shoe Dryers – Wet shoes are a bummer, amiright? Well with these little wonders, your soggy cycling cleats will be dry and toasty the next morning. All you have to do is remember to put them in the night before. No power source necessary so they still work when your home sweet home is a tent.
Vintage Bicycle Gift Wrap Pack – Sure, by now people know that you’re into bikes. But do they know that you’re REALLY into bikes? Like enough to wrap all your gifts in paper decorated with vintage bicycles? If you’re ready for this level of commitment, there’s only one thing left to do.
Bike Beer Caddy – Here’s a classic conundrum: you’ve ridden to the store on your bike (possibly in a rural Oregon town) and purchased six bottles of craft brewed hoppy goodness, but now you have no way to get them home. Instead of sitting down on the nearest bench and drinking them all right there, here are some nifty ways to transport them safely home.
Get your #sockgame on – Everyone knows that no cycling kit is complete unless your #sockgame is on point. Now you can give the gift of a fancy new pair of socks every month and your giftee can sport a fresh look for every CO event they ride on. There are several sock subscription services out there, just pick the one that offers the style that you like the best and give away!
Cycle Oregon Swag – Know someone that is a CO junkie? Then you may be able to find the right thing for them right here. We have a selection of jerseys, socks, hats, glasses, and everything else CO. If you would like to purchase the perfect Cycle Oregon gift, drop us a line at [email protected] or call 503-287-0405 before December 20.
2020 Classic Registration – And now for the most wonderful, most thoughtful, ultimate gift of them all – a spot on the 2020 Cycle Oregon Classic ride!
Register a friend or loved one for next years’ Classic and win the holidays! Registration is currently open and if you rode with us last year and you sign up before Kickoff on January 29, you’ll get a free 2020 Classic jersey. Whether you want to give the jersey away as part of the gift, that’s up to you.
