Right now we have several gift items for the bicycle riders on your holiday shopping list. You can check out the pictures below if you’re looking for ideas.
This time of year a lot of folks are wondering what to get for their loved ones who love bikes, and it made me think about what types of accessories I really appreciate having when I’m riding around town during these cold, damp months. The other day I left the house in a rush and forgot my Smartwool headband. This is an essential item for me when it’s cold out and I noticed its absence right away, but because I was in a hurry I decided to just roll on without it. Man, did I miss that thing! By the time I got to the shop from Greenlake, my ears were aching with that inner cold that many of you winter riders are probably familiar with. It’s amazing how much comfort that little wool band provides; I don’t even think about it when I have it on, but it’s sorely missed when it isn’t there.
I asked Juliette if she had any favorite cold weather accessories for riding, and she mentioned her fleece-lined leggings — warm, soft on the skin, and don’t hold moisture. She wears them with skirts or dresses while riding. They look awfully comfortable, I have to say.
