Gift Ideas for Flagstaff Bicycle Riders
If you live in Arizona, chances are you know and love a Flagstaff bicycle rider or two (or ten). When the holidays or their birthdays come up, you’re not quite sure what to gift them. There are plenty of great tools, gear, and gadgets that you can pick out for the cyclist in your life, and it doesn’t just stop at cycling clothes, tubes, and tires. Here are some of our favorite picks for the cyclist in your life.
- Mini tool. No cyclist should ever ride without a mini tool, and that mini tool should be replete with wrenches, screwdrivers, torx, and other essentials that will work with their bike. A mini tool is never a bad gift and will stay with your cyclist always.
- VITAband. The VITAband is the answer to the ever-present question plaguing cyclists: “Do I carry my wallet and identification or leave it at home?” Keeping a cyclist safe on the road means thinking about the possibility of an accident, whether it involves slipping out on an empty trail or getting struck by a vehicle on the highway. VITAband is a bracelet that holds personal information and can even be used as a prepaid VISA (with funds preloaded, of course) in case the cyclist gets a flat or gets hungry and doesn’t have their wallet. We haven’t tried VITAband, but we know how important identification and the band’s other features can be in a crisis.
- Bicycle wall rack or stand. There are dozens of options out there for cyclists who need a better way to store their bikes than just on the floor. Wall racks keep the bike off the ground, which means fewer flat tires and more floor space.
If you’re looking to buy a gift for a cyclist, remember that being trendy isn’t as important as a gift that will protect and help the cyclist you love. Of course, it never hurts to give them that high end cycling jacket they’ve been eyeing as a fallback when you can’t think of anything else.
