Gift ideas for the cyclist in your life
Whether it’s a birthday, Christmas, anniversary or just to say “I love you”, sometimes finding that perfect gift for the cyclist in your life is challenging!
As cyclists ourselves, this is what we’d love to receive for special occasions and as gifts.
A bike lock is a cyclist’s best friend – and for a good reason! A well-made bike lock will prevent your bike from being stolen, allowing you to confidently store your bike in public whilst you work, shop or socialise.
There are 3 different types of bike locks to choose from. These are chain locks, U-locks or D-locks and cable locks or combination locks. Each of these locks has different pros and cons.
Chain locks are probably the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of bike locks, these heavy-duty locks fit most bike frames and can deter thieves. Although they’re extremely tough, they are also very heavy and can be difficult to carry.
U-locks or D-locks
A D or U-shaped lock with a removable crossbar that secures your bike to a rack or stand. This lock is popular for its sturdiness and its light weight however these bike locks don’t fit all bike frames.
Cable locks or combination locks
These bike locks are commonly used in low-crime areas and are great for many people thanks to their convenience and lightweight however we wouldn’t recommend these locks for densely populated areas or areas with a high risk of crime.

What do you get if you cross a car rack, a bike and a keen cyclist? An adventure of a lifetime! Car racks make great gifts for cyclists looking to transport their bikes to new destinations for new adventures. And you can almost guarantee that they’ll make good use of it, too!
With so many car racks to choose from, it’s important to get the right one. We’ve got a whole blog on bike racks, their pros and cons and our tips on safely transporting your bike.
