Honestly, it’s a pain to remember which jersey pockets you put your items in. This case solves that and it looks pretty ace too.
9. Cliff Bars – £14.10
A pack of tasty treats to help energise the cyclist in your life. Peanut butter is my fave, but there are lots more flavours!
11. Cycling Holiday – £XXX
Alright money bags… What a present, and one that will never be forgotten. Cycling holidays are a great way to escape the UK’s doom and gloom.
13. Primal Electric Socks – £8
WOAH. Edgy. A gift for a cyclist that will certainly stand out. Like a zebra galloping the grey roads of Britain. Majestic.
15. Bike Necklace – £4

33. Ass Saver – £5.99
Not to be confused with any kind of medicine (which would be a really weird gift), the ass saver is a cheap but effective mud guard for the commuter. Ass 1, mud 0.

Another pair of socks because we all know socks are an ideal present no matter the occasion. Orange and conveniently labelled to remind you to wash after a cycle.
37. Castelli Winter Gloves – £26.99

Do they really like cycling if they haven’t got a BBQ set with bikes all over it? It’s time they upped their game with this sizzling gift.
43. Road ID Bracelet – £25
A simple but useful product. An ID bracelet with the gift receivers details on can be one less thing to worry about when they’re out on the road.
44. Cafetiere – £8
Stop with the coffee gifts already! No. A cyclist loves their coffee and when you come to fully understand that, you’ll realise there’s not enough caffeine related products on this list.
45. Hour Record Print – £35
Something I’ve been thinking about getting myself. This hanging print looks the part and provides some handy dinner table stats to establish the cycling nerd’s authority.
47.Monkey Lights – £23
