Great urban cycling gifts at this time of year can give a loved one the impetus to ride through the worst of the weathers. With minds on sunnier times, we sat down (festive snack in hand) and bitterly defended our corner over what would make our curated list of 12 great gifts.
Among our rider favorites are these great bits of bomb proof kit. Pedals from Crank Brothers and a Chrome Bag not only look great but also give you the confidence that they will still be along for the ride in years to come.
Two gifts ideal for a lover of big city style - the Bern Watts Helmet or the eminently practical and ever popular Valdipino Poncho.
City style doesn't have to mean black and rugged. These sartorial offerings from Giro and PEdAL Ed offer something a little different for the city rider.
Although.... Black and rugged does look pretty mean. This Smith Maze Helmet and Hestra Gauntlet Bike Gloves house some pretty high end tech to keep you safe as you traverse city streets.
An addition to the cycling wardrobe is always welcome and when it comes in the form of this pairing from Swrve and Showers Pass you'll be getting a combo that balances nicely between style and substance.
You can't go wrong with a great pair of cycling jeans (such as this offering from Muxu) or a cycling cap, two urban cycling wardrobe staples.
Always Riding's super domestique - just as happy helping you up a climb and feeding you a flapjack (his dietary staple) as writing content and editing pics. If not at his desk he can be found lurking in the storeroom gazing at new stock intake or plotting an over ambitious camping, cycling or hiking trip.
