We put together a list of small items $50 and under that you can get straight from our online store, Cyclosource. Some of these are gift ideas you may have thought of yourself (like awesome socks) and others will be complete surprises, but we recommend them all based on our years and years of collective bike travel experience.
Important: The holiday shipping cutoff is Dec. 16 for standard-rate mail!
Few adventures take you right by a coffee shop, so it’s crucial to be able to brew your morning cup at camp. The BruTrek Ovrlndr Travel Press is a truly easy-to-clean French press perfect for tours, bikepacking adventures, road-trips or just brewing in the kitchen. The patented removable bottom makes cleanup a breeze, and the patented Bru Stop press makes for a smooth, never-bitter tasting cup that won’t leave grounds in your smile.
If you’re always digging through your pockets or bags for your phone to check directions, you know why you need a mount. And this mount is particularly rad! The Quad Lock® Bike Mount is the lightest, strongest and most secure smartphone bike mount on the market. The patented dual-stage lock is strong enough to lift up to 80 kg (176 lbs). Yep, we tested it. So you can ride with confidence over bumps and jumps knowing that your fancy phone won't fly away.
No more scalding yourself with your extremely hot beverage of choice. The BruTrek 18fl oz. Bottle has a dual lid system that keeps liquid in while making sipping and pouring easy.
Give the gift of comfy feet. The cyclist in your life will love the Defeet Four Seasons Socks in spring, fall, and summer, as well as this winter season. Wooleator Comp is Defeet's proprietary fiber combining equal parts USA merino and Repreve Fiber made from used, recycled plastic bottles. These come with our snazzy logo in yellow on blue to show your love for bike adventures.
This is the least intuitive item we have in our gift guide. Why would someone want a water bottle cage for the holidays? Hear us out! It’s not just for water bottles. The Salsa EXP Series Anything Cage HD is a unique cargo mounting system that allows you to carry lightweight gear or large bottles on forks and down tubes that have Three-Pack mounts. You can carry up to 3kg (6.6 lbs) with one of these. That’s a big deal if you are bikepacking (rather than touring with big panniers) and have limited storage space. If you want a bag that fits this system perfectly, here’s the cage bag, but you can also strap in a secured bundle (like your sleeping bag). Want to check out another option? We also carry the Topeak Versa Cage Rack, a similar product at a similar price.
Finally, you can always give the gift of inspiration. We're well known for our long distance cycling maps all around the country. Gift a cyclist a section of a great route and watch the wheels start turning in their head. It's an inexpensive, low commitment way to get an adventure in motion.
When you buy holiday gifts from Cyclosource you support our mission of creating better bicycling adventures for all and get great gear that we stand behind. So you’ll be able to tell the recipient that their present is both recommended by us and will help Adventure Cycling Association pedal onward.
