Just like any other sport or hobby, cycling is something that can be addictive in a very good way. It takes control over a person's mind, and you know a cyclist when you see one - has way too many cycling outfits, is buying bike parts regularly, or is constantly dreaming about a new bike, or all three of them.
Well, let’s say you know one (or you are one too), and you are looking for the perfect Christmas or upcoming Birthday gift. Say no more, because we have prepared a list of great gift ideas for a cyclist!

2. Cycling headphones
Have you heard about these ingeniously designed wireless cycling headphones that allow you to safely ride while enjoying music? Presenting you AfterShokz Conduction headphones.
They don’t get into the ear canal but sit outside it, so you can still talk to people and hear cars and stay safe while cycling. And because they use bone-conduction technology, which delivers sound through vibrations against your skull, only the wearer can hear what’s being played.
You don’t notice them, and they never make you sweat, unlike earphones. The headphones also work just as well for listening to real-time directions from Google Maps.
Price 70-120 eur
If the cyclist in your life likes to pedal alongside friends, they’ll appreciate how easily this JBL Cip-in Bluetooth speaker can clip on to various parts of their bike to play a soundtrack for group rides.
