Gift Guide for Cyclists

Dec 05 - 2012

One of the most recent surprise gifts that I received was on a trip to visit a friend in Atlanta. On a walk around town, we had both noticed a pair of hot burnt orange corduroy skinny pants on a window mannequin and my friend suggested that I try them on. I did and LOVED them but I am not an impulse shopper so I put them back on the table.

We continued on our way and after a block my friend realized that she had left her purse at the shop counter. I browsed around a gourmet chocolate shop as she went to retrieve her purse. When she returned, she handed me a bag with a grin on her face. I looked at her suspiciously as I took the bag and inside was the pair of burnt orange corduroy skinny pants. I almost fell over in surprise! My friend laughed and said “I love giving gifts!”

Every time I wear them, I will think of my friend. Little gifts or big gifts, gift-giving IS fun!  Our gift to you today are some great ideas for your favorite cyclist.  Enjoy!
