9 Spectacular Gifts Your Cycling Friends Would Adore [2019]

Finding the perfect gift for your favorite cycling enthusiast can be a toughie. Luckily, we’ve done the heavy lifting and assembled a power list of the best cycling gifts to pleasantly surprise the bicyclists in your life.

First the good news, cyclists don’t have to maintain an expansive roster of requisite cycling gear—somewhat making the search for an appropriate cycling gift less challenging. The bad news: that can mean they already have most of what they need to cycle and your gift may not elicit any excitement.

And you don’t want that:

You have to gift a cool item or gadget with an X factor that’d enable them hit the road in style. This list is chockfull of these cool ideas for bike lovers of all skill levels from the occasional hobbyist to a weekend road warrior. You can’t go wrong with any of these spin-worthy cycling gifts that are gender-neutral.

#7 Anti-Stink Laundry Detergent

Cyclists spend good money on durable pads and helmets that last. But over time, they smell awful, no matter how you’ve tried to clean it! As a pro lacrosse player, Drew Westervelt couldn’t find a solution to clean his high-performance lacrosse gear. So he partnered with cleaning scientists to create one. 

Dirt, blood, sweat, and grime all linger in pads, helmets and more… The smell alone is bad enough, but if this grime isn’t cleaned, it’ll multiply. Smelly gear breeds bacteria, which can cause health risks and wear out gear fast. Traditional detergents can’t clean odors caused by bacteria out of synthetic fabrics and gear. They actually make the problem worse by clogging fabrics with residue and trapping the stink under fragrance.

#9 ChiliPad Cube 2.0 Cooling and Heating Mattress Pad

This is perfect for cyclists because sleeping cool on a ChiliPad can optimize deep sleep, which is scientifically proven to enhance muscle recovery by as much as 30% and improve physical performance by as much as 9%. Muscle repair and growth during sleep occur due to the natural release of growth hormone during deep sleep. 

In fact, 70% of the growth hormone release occurs during deep sleep, and the amount of growth hormone secreted correlates directly with the amount of deep sleep you get. Additionally, one study found that after cold exposure like sleeping on a cool ChiliPad, growth hormone secretion increased by over 450%. 

Additional benefits include: 

  • Increasing metabolism by 10 percent 
  • Increasing melatonin production which provides regular menstrual cycles, enhanced mood, weight loss, cancer-fighting properties, increased brain health and anti-aging 
  • Reducing hot flashes by up to 85 percent 
  • Falling asleep easier 
  • Getting better quality sleep 
  • Decreasing risk of disease
