TeamCBC Cycling Tip – Guide to the Perfect Cycling Gift

First of all, this tip isn’t for you. It is for your friends, family, or significant other. This is a public service for those of you that have received cycling gifts in the past that you are too embarrassed to even regift. Therefore please forward it with your preferred gift highlighted.
We’re just friends
  • Cycling Socks – Buy a high-quality pair like DeFeet, not a 6-pack from Walmart
  • Cycling Gloves – Match their favorite team (like TeamCBC) or bike (Trek, Specialized, etc)
  • Bike bell – I’m serious, especially if riding on a greenway
We’re family
  • Cycling jersey – Like gloves, find out what they like, not the plain “no-name” ones from Dick’s Sporting Goods
  • Cycling shorts or bibs – There’s nothing better than a matchy kit
  • Rain Jacket – Not a yellow Gorton fisherman mac. It needs to be cycling specific and made from Gore-Tex
You really love me
Also, most of these items can be purchased in-store or online from our sponsors:
Quote of the week: “It’s a little like wrestling a gorilla. You don’t quit when you’re tired; you quit when the gorilla is tired.” Fausto Coppi, champion cyclist
