Our 7 tips for (Christmas) gifts for cyclists
If you are short of ideas for what to buy for your favourite cyclist this Christmas, you have come to the right place. Here is our handy guide to the best Christmas gifts that every two-wheeled fan will love!
Tip 1: Voucher for bike fitting at KOA
A must-have for anyone who is serious about their bike
It does not matter if he/she rides just "for fun" or has ambitions to challenge local KOMs or win races. Bike fitting is the perfect gift for anyone who regularly spends hours on their bike. We know that cycling might have negative health implications when the correct riding position is not addressed – especially with body imbalances. We can highly recommend the professionals at KOA studio for bike fitting. Using 3D biomechanical motion analysis, they have been helping pros and enthusiastic amateurs alike for years to ride and stay healthy and happy.
Tip 2: Registration for L'Etape Czech Republic by Tour de France
The gift of a race experience with a great atmosphere
Do you want to give the gift of an experience? Buy a race registration for L'Etape Czech Republic by Tour de France! Despite its short history, this race has earned a stable position in the Czech road cycling calendar. The reasons are clear – organisers choose attractive routes, they know how to secure the roads perfectly with closed traffic and there is a great atmosphere during the race thanks to many spectators. All of this predestines L'Etape to growing interest from amateur cyclists.
Tip 3: Joyseat saddle gift card
The gift of tailored comfort and the joy of riding
Do you constantly hear him/her moaning about saddle sore after a ride? Whether he or she enjoys hitting trail rides, discovering forgotten dirt roads or smashing the group ride on tarmac, with the Joyseat saddle he or she will say goodbye to a sore butt once and for all! We will deliver a printed gift card, including a Smilling Butt Kit. The recipient can thus create a butt print in the comfort of their own home and configure the parameters of their new saddle online. It is going to be fun under the Christmas tree!
Tip 4: Happy Cycling Set
Aromatherapy cosmetics that work wonders
Looking cool on a bike does not have to mean you also feel cool. So instead of another jersey this year, how about giving him/her something that will keep him/her comfortable at all times? We are talking about the Happy Cycling Set, the holy trinity of Posedla cycling cosmetics. The Smiling Butt Cream is perfect for taking care of the sitting areas, while the Warming and Cooling Legs Cream will help with the recovery of stressed muscles and joints. At a discounted price this set provides complete care for the sitting areas, muscles and joints in warm and cold weather. You will also get a discount on any three creams of your own choice.

Tip 5: Subscription to Rouvy
Why be freezing cold outside when you can ride at home?
Not all of us can travel to warmer places to avoid months of riding with frozen limbs. Fortunately, there are several options for staying in shape or even improving your fitness in the off-season. Let us leave the other sports out for now and focus on technological gadgets that will make cycling training easier – specifically, the Czech cycling app Rouvy. Simply connect your bike to your trainer, turn on the app on your computer, tablet or mobile phone and pick from thousands of routes, including the most famous climbs of the Tour, Giro, Vuelta or one-day classics.
