If you’re looking for some additions to your Xmas wish-list or are needing some inspiration for filling the stocking of the cyclist in your life, here are some great suggestions.
British Cycling Membership
A British Cycling Membership is the cycling gift that keeps on giving. As well as Liability insurance and legal support (Race Gold, Silver, Ride & Commute) for daily cycling, you’ll receive a host of other benefits and discounts and be supporting essential cycling advocacy.
Probably top of Santa’s list for any cyclist would be a new bike. There’s no denying that our bike partner Cervélo produce some beautiful bikes but top of our wish-list this year is their Áspero gravel bike.
Okay, subscriptions might not make for an exciting package under the tree but there’s no doubt that whether it’s a TrainingPeaks Premium Athlete Edition, a Zwift Subscription or one of our Digital Training Plans, it’ll be gratefully received.
Gels and energy bars make great stocking fillers and, with a 30% discount across the SiS range, you’ll be able to afford plenty of them.
See.Sense lights not only shine bright but adapt to your riding environment and speed, give you low-battery, theft and crash alerts and, by opting in to share your ride data, improve cycling conditions. Save 30% on See.Sense bike lights.
Don’t be worried about buying a cyclist socks - we love them! If you’re planning to surprise with other bits of cycling clothing, try to take a sneaky peek at the kit they have to get the sizing right. You can then get great discounts off VeloVixen and Prendas Ciclismo.
If you want to buy some speed, how about a Kalas Sonic Skinsuit which has been developed with the Great Britain Cycling Team?
Kit and spares
Inner tubes - check the size, multi-tools, CO2 canisters, pumps; there’s a whole array of bits and bobs that are guaranteed to be gratefully received.
Get discounts at Evans, Halfords and Chain Reaction Cycles.

For the cyclist who has everything….
How about the chain that propelled the Great Britain Cycling Team to their medal haul on the track at Rio? One of a limited run of 138, this chain from Renold Velo CT was co-developed by Renold, British Cycling and Bristol University and is arguably the fastest track chain in the world.
