December 5, 2013

Its that time of year.  Either you’re shopping for a gift for a cyclist in your life, or you’re a cyclist and someone is asking you what to get you as a gift.

But buying for a cyclist, or trying to think of something to ask for (aside from, say, a dream bike) can be tough.  So we’ve come up with a handy gift guide for the cyclist in your life—or to give you a starting point of things to ask for this holiday season—aside from that dream bike.

For this first part, we’re looking at services.  These are the things many riders often think about getting themselves, but they never get around to it, even though they are things they really want or need to enhance their riding experience.

Riding Friends

Give the gift of the group ride, the pack, the tribe, the team. Bicycle Sport Shop Cycling Club memberships can be given as gifts and include a number of goodies such as club-exclusive clothing, special race kit pricing, race reimbursements, and discounts and special offers from club sponsors.  Plus, it’s fun!

Take Care of Their Bike

A perennial favorite gift, a tune up of a beloved old bike can bring joy to a rider and breathe life into an old favorite that may otherwise be collecting dust.  And you can save big on this gift by taking advantage of our Winter Service Specials going on now.

Turn Your Old Bike Into Something Else

Maybe you have an old bike or two that you’re no longer using.  Why not bring them in for a trade-in quote from our pre-owned department?  If you get an offer you like, you’ll get a gift card for the value of the trade in that you can use immediately toward any item in the store, or you can give the gift card to someone else as a gift!

Give A Transportation Alternative

Why not get the rider in your life out of the car more?   An Austin B-cycle membership is just the thing to turn your dedicated roadie or trial rider into a transportation cyclist.  One less car for Christmas!

Get Them Comfy

Another yearly favorite—a session with one of our trained bicycle fitters.  The best bike in the world is only as good as it is comfortable.  You have to want to ride your bike and one sure way to want to ride it is to make sure the riding experience is pleasant and enjoyable. Let our fit technicians get the rider you’re shopping for sitting pretty and smiling for miles with a proper fitting bike.

Give Them Knowledge

Send your cyclist to school for the holidays.  Bicycle Sport Shop University classes are a great gift for the rider that wants to be hands-on with the are and upkeep of their bike.  Learning maintenance from the best mechanics in ton is a sure fire way to keep them motivated and excited about cycling.  This is one of our most popular gifts each year.

Of course there are literally hundreds of things that you can get at the shop to wrap up and put a bow on—including dream bikes.  Next time we’ll take a look at a few of our favorite items in stock and ready to make their way onto Santa’s sleigh.
