Cycling Gift Guide: For Him

Giant Chill Lite Gloves – Small / Medium - £23.99

It goes without saying that in the UK, we’re often unlucky when it comes to colder temperatures! Whether it’s for chilly early mornings or frosty winter nights, we couldn’t recommend a great pair of cycling gloves more. These Giant Chill Lite gloves are the perfect accessory for keeping his hands warm and dry, while still providing a full range of motion. The multi-layer back material ensures comfort and protection, while the single layer palms provide a great grip – even in the rain! And, if that’s not enough, for the tech-savvy cyclist, the gloves even allow for full touch-screen use!

 

Raleigh Mini Pocket Repair Kit Tool Set - £14.99

Punctures often occur at the worst times. Experiencing one when you’re unprepared and far from home can be really demotivating! We understand how frustrating this is, and the cyclist in your life will too. Gift him with the perfect solution, this handy pocket-sized repair tool kit. Being pocket-sized and in a soft storage pouch makes this tool set the best companion on any bike ride. Trust us, he’ll thank you later!

 

XLC 11 Function Wired Touch Screen Computer - £19.99

This touch screen cycling computer contains 11 brilliant functions that’ll be valuable information for the competitive cycling enthusiast. The computer contains a wide range of speed features, informing the rider of their actual speed, maximum speed and average speed! They’ll also find out their cadence (actual, average and max), trip distance and calories burnt. The computer comes complete with a backlight for any darker bike rides, a clock and records their trip time. It’s compatible with any bike with 8”-29” wheels, meaning it works on a huge range of cycles!

 

The Exercise/Commuter Package - £25.00

Whether he’s into cycling for exercise or as a mode of transport, we’ve got a great value bundle that he’s sure to love. For the fitness-enthusiasts, our exercise package comes with a water bottle, bottle cage, mudguards, and pump, providing all of the necessary essentials together, at a fraction of the price! This is a particularly great gift for a beginner cyclist as it provides all of the necessities in one handy starter-package.

For those who favour cycling as a mode of transport, they may be interested in our commuter bundle. This package includes a water bottle, bottle cage, mudguards, and a kickstand. The addition of the kickstand is a great essential to allow the rider to prop up their bike wherever they may be, while they’re on the go.

 

A Trip Away to a Cycling Event

If you’re looking for an extra special treat, why not take him to a cycling event and for a short break away. There are hundreds of annual cycling races across the world, and a trip to one of them could be the perfect present for any bike-lover! One of the biggest races is the Tour De France, which in 2019 takes place Saturday 6th July – Sunday 28th July. For more information about the race, why not visit their website.

Or, if you’d like to stay a little closer to home there are plenty of races and cycling events happening all over the UK. Why not treat him to a day out to one of the races, or book a short stay away to watch the race across a few days! Visit https://www.ukcyclingevents.co.uk/ to find out more about the cycling races and events across the UK.

 

Sports Massage

If he’s into competitive racing, why not treat him to a sports massage. Whether it’s in preparation for a big race, or to recover from one, a sports massage could be the perfect solution for targeting any tenderness, injuries, and discomfort caused by cycling.

Alternatively, if he takes his cycling a little less seriously, but could benefit from some relaxation away from the bike, why not treat him to a regular massage. Experience gifts are often the most exciting to receive and with a massage voucher, he’ll be able to pick a time and date that suits him best.

 

Gift Voucher

If you’re still stuck for ideas, why not give him the choice! With 1000s of products in our stores across the UK, a Cycle King & Hawk Cycles gift voucher means that he’ll be able to get whatever he needs. We offer vouchers from £25, all the way up to £100, giving you complete control over the amount that you’d like to spend!
