Recently over the Christmas period we had a lot of questions regarding gifts for cyclists. The questions have come in all shapes and sizes, from varying types of cyclists. As always, we are more than happy to help our loyal customers and the recipients. Gifts are not just for Xmas either, they make great gift ideas for fathers/mothers day and birthdays too.
What is a good gift for a cyclist?
There are now a huge variety of gifts for cyclists on the market place. The simplest, and sometimes the best, is a gift voucher. This can be a great option if you know very little about cycling, because the recipient can choose which products they like. If you are more confident with your bike knowledge, then you can get them a specific item which you know they need. In my opinion, getting a gift which you know they do not have already is a great starting place. Get creative and check out the Rehook store for ideas.
What every cyclist needs?
A good idea when thinking of gift ideas, is to think of the essentials, they might not have already. Chances are they already have a bike, but what about taking them shopping for an upgraded bike, or a different style? They must also have a helmet, lights, locks, covers, drinks bottle, and tools. See what they have and offer a better version or to replace older items. Every cyclist loves new kit so it will not go unused.
What do you buy a keen cyclist?
There can be a huge difference between someone who cycles, and a keen cyclist. The main difference will be the amount of tools and tech which they use. The hardest part of choosing a gift for a keen cyclist will be finding something they do not already have. The Rehook PLUS tool ticks this box, because it is completely unique and newly released. A gift voucher is also a great idea, to allow the recipient some flexibility in the item they need or desire.
What is a good mountain bike for a beginner?
You may not even have a cyclist in the family already, so purchasing them their first bike is a fantastic idea. Especially as it opens up a world of interest and hobby opportunities for them. Giving someone the gift of cycling is unmeasurable and provides a great sense of wellbeing when you see how happy it makes them. There are a few things to think of when purchasing a bike though. Firstly, it needs to be the correct size, so it may be an idea to measure the recipient first. Secondly, you do not have to spend a fortune. You can buy good new bikes for around £200 upwards and used for £100 upwards. You just need to make sure the gears, brakes and wheels are in good condition and run smoothly.
