Posted on: 06/12/2017 at 5:06pm


Looking for gift ideas for a cyclist? Look no further.

Here are some of our festive favourites, products we be very happy to give or receive.

Jump to price range: £0-£10 | £10-£20 | £20-£50 | £50-£100 | £100+



£0 to £10

Here’s something festive and fun, a mince pie flavoured energy bar. We hear Santa never leaves home without one.

And to as the perfect accompaniment, only the finest hydration will do….

Feel like flying the flag for your friendly neighbourhood cycle shop? Keep it West-Side with our very own Summit Cycles MTB mud deflector.

And apre-ride, you’re going to need a good bike wash. We know of none finer than this…

£10 to £20

Socks may be a bit of a Christmas cliché but we’d be hard pushed to recommend a better universal gift for all cyclists . You can never have enough and foot comfort can be the difference between a good and bad day in the saddle. These super soft merino socks from Endura are a staff favourite that strike the perfect balance between warmth and performance, they are super comfortable and keep you warm even when wet.

And at the other end of the body how about this for versatility. A multi-function head tube that’s also made of merino. It’s a mask, a scarf, a hat, a headband, it’s all of this and more.

Here is a nice little package of bike care goodies from bike care supremos Muc-Off. The kit contains bike cleaner, MO94 multi purpose bike spray and chain lube all in a handy gift pack. Great value.

£20 to £50

Who wants cold hands? Nobody, that’s who, so these Summit Staff recommended Endura Windchill gloves will save you from frosty fingers. Great for the daily commute, chain gang or off-road exploration they offer a good balance of fit, comfort, warmth and feel.

More bike care, I know right, but it’s winter and your bike needs some extra care and attention through the colder months. Muc-Off to the rescue with their Bike Care Essentials kit containing Cleaner, Spray, Brush and Sponge to give your bikes the old one-two.

It’s dark out there so here’s something to get you noticed. With some great reviews including a 4stars from RoadCC the Exposure Trace R (R for USB Rechargeable) is bright enough for daylight visibility, small and incredibly light. Keep someone safe with this great gift.

£50 to £100

There are lots of good front lights to choose from now but this is our current favourite for performance and value. The Bontrager ION 800 R. USB rechargeable, tough and at 800 lumens bright enough for off road riding in winter. All this in a sub £100 light and backed by Bontragers industry leading guarantee. Superb!

Above £100 things tend to get a little more personal and specific to the type of riding a you do. But being as general as we can be, clothing would probably be a good first pick, a nice rain or warm jacket or even a whole outfit. A bike make-over from our workshop (our gift vouchers can be used for workshop too) or a bike fitting maybe.


Then there are bikes, starting from tiny kids balance bikes from just over £100 and going up to….well, the sky’s the limit.


Whatever your needs our staff are always happy to advise and help you find the perfect gift for that cyclist in your life, especially when that cyclist is you.

Merry Christmas!

Kids bikes for Christmas

Receiving your first bike is one of the most durable memories of childhood. It’s rare that adults don’t recall that first taste of freedom, the excitement of the shiny new bike under the tree soon fused with the trepidation of those first teetering moments in the saddle. This is why bikes make such great gifts, […]
