Christmas is fast approaching, so we thought we’d help out all those who know someone cycling mad with our handy gift guide for cyclists. From the world’s smallest bike rack CLUG (heard of it?!), to waterproof hi-vis socks and the Garmin Edge 1030 for the tech lovers, we have it all! Oh… and there’s also a couple of suggestions for junior cyclists.
CLUG – the world’s smallest bike rack!
First up is the Eurobike award winning CLUG, the world’s smallest bike rack. Made by Hornit, the CLUG is currently available for wheel sizes of 23mm – 62mm and it really is as simple as it sounds.
All you do is roll your bike up and ‘CLUG’ it in.
If your cyclist likes a little bit of inspiration before they ride, then Wild Cycling offers up some pretty impressive rides off the beaten track in Britain – 50 of them in fact!
Pick up a copy at Waterstones for £12.99
Recycled Bike Chain Cufflinks
Cufflinks made from recycled bike chain? There’s no need to be wasteful at Christmas!
These cool cufflinks are cleaned and polished, you could even be mistaken for thinking they’d never been used as a bike chain before. They also come presented in a recycled carboard box, so they really hit the nail on the head for the eco-cyclist.
Buy them at Wiggle for £16
The Hornit db140 is the loudest cycle horn on the market and the first product produced by Hornit. It’s small, sleek and enables drivers to alert distracted drivers to their presence. A must have for commuter cyclists. And, it also made an appearance on Dragon’s Den!
Crosspoint waterproof hi-vis socks
The perfect stocking filler? We think so! These hi-vis socks are great for added safety whilst cycling and they’re also waterproof, so no soggy feet at the end of a journey!
You can buy them from Shower Pass for £27
Garmin Edge 1030
Garmin’s flagship GPS is a neat device, packed full of features and great for maximum battery life or a big screen for navigation. Garmin claim the Edge 1030 has a battery life of 20 hours and it even offers ‘popularity’ based routing, along with WiFi and Bluetooth.
UK buyers can pick one up at Evans Cycles for £499
The patented USB rechargeable Hornit LITE combines a 250-lumen light with 120 decibel horn. Boasting 6 light modes for night and day use, and up to 9.5 hours run time, the Hornit LITE is bright enough to light the way in complete darkness.

Gore Wear M Windstopper Gloves
If you live in a colder country, you’ll know that a decent pair of cycling gloves is an essential part of winter cycling. There’s a wide range of gloves out there but we’re loving these Windstopper gloves from Gore.
They’re made from water repellent fabric and have been optimised for use with screen.

And, for the mini cyclists…
The Mini Hornit is the leading light and sound effect accessory. Loaded with over 25 unique sounds, with white and green lights, kids’ imaginations will run wild.

Mini Hornit LIDS
Mini Hornit LIDS are certainly cooler than other kids bike helmets! Expertly designed, they are fully adjustable, comfortable, lightweight and come in 8 different designs. There is also the added safety feature of an integrated LED light on the back.
