Are you searching for gifts ideas for the female cyclist in your life? Maybe you’re looking to drop some not-so-subtle hints about what you really want. Either way, here are five items that will make riding more enjoyable.
Rapha Souplesse Training Jacket
Rapha’s Souplesse will help you ride through cold, blustery days. This jacket gets its insulation from a wind-blocking Polartec fleece front panel with Thermoroubaix material on the back that traps in heat while wicking away moisture. This versatile piece can be a shoulder season jersey when paired with a lightweight baselayer and can help you train through the winter months when layered over a thermal jersey.
Shimano SH-RP5 Road Shoe
Shimano’s SH-RP5 packs high-end features into an affordable package. The carbon-reinforced nylon sole offers excellent pedaling efficiency and the Boa dial and Velcro toe strap make it easy to fine-tune fit.
Shebeest cycling apparel is designed by women for women. These socks are constructed from lightweight moisture-wicking fabric with 4.5-inch cuffs. They come in an array of fun prints to coordinate with the rest of your kit.
Fixation Wine Caddy
After a long week, sometimes the ride you look forward to the most is to pick up a well-deserved bottle of wine. Fixation’s Wine Caddy is the perfect companion for the rides that take you to dinner parties or picnics.
Giro Chrono Expert Thermal Halter Bib Knicker
Giro’s Halter Bib Kickers are designed to make nature brakes painless. The halter-style strap slips over the wearer’s head, so there’s no need to remove a bunch of layers for pit stops. These knickers are constructed from fleece-lined fabric with wind-blocking panels and a DWR finish that shrugs off light moisture.
