Stocking fillers for female cyclists
Bike Register membership
Sometimes what women really want is something useful. There's nothing more comforting than a gift that puts our minds at rest. Bike Register - the national cycle database - offer three types of kit that register individual bikes to a national police database, making that bike identifiable if it does get taken by thieves.
Starting at £12.99 for the Membership Plus Kit, you can identify your bike with a laminated, tamper resistant warning label with unique QR code that can be scanned instantly with a smart phone. Deters would-be thieves.
See.Sense bike light
More than just a light, this multi-faceted product is capable of many different roles at once (sound relatable?). A high-power CREE LED creates a focused beam to make you visible from up to 3km away. A custom CoB LED panel gives a wide dispersion of light giving you 270° of side visibility. At riskier moments on the road (e.g. at junctions, roundabouts, filtering in traffic) ICON2 reacts by automatically flashing brighter and faster to make sure you stand out.
When you cycle with ICON2, the patented sensor technology within it monitors your riding experience. This includes detecting real-time information on any collisions or near-miss events you were involved in, the road surface quality, or your journey flow.
The VeloPack RidePac is a nifty little pouch that will keep your essentials safe and dry no matter what the cycling conditions are. Manufactured using a lightweight waterproof Ripstop outer fabric with a microfibre inner padding and bound seams for strength. It fits neatly into a jersey or jacket pocket and the water resistant zip keeps the wettest conditions at bay.
Inside the VeloPac RidePac there's a secure zipped pocket for coins and keys, plus a slot for your credit card or race licence and a separate phone compartment that will accept most smartphones - including larger devices such as the latest i-phones and Samsung Galaxy (check the size guide for specifics).
Glow in the dark Fisherman's Cap
The Peruvian wool fisherman's cap is a cold-weather essential. Unisex and unique, it sits comfortably on the crown of your head, each colour knitted with a light reflective, high-visibility yarn, making them fashionable in the day and protective at night. Handmade in the UK at a women's co-op, this snood screams sisterhood as well as style and snuggle-factor.
It's Only a Hill notebook
Women love having our own personal place, and this notebook from Band of Climbers is wrapped in a cover that makes a personality statement. A lined, A5 notebook it's a ready space to create your own notes, ideas, training tips, and destination wish-lists.
Sporting Brain Box
Not the cheapest stocking filler on our list, but certainly the most inspirational. For the woman who is all about self-care, self-improvement, and striving for the best version of herself.
If you know someone who needs a confidence boost and a way of seeing any event as an exciting challenge, rather than a daunting threat, the Sporting Brain Box makes for a brilliant gift.
For anyone who has recently signed up for a sporting challenge, or as a helpful way to start to understand your own sporting mindset without the expense of seeing a sport psychologist.
Incorporating 13 sport psychology techniques and activities in one box, every activity included has been chosen by chartered sport psychologist, Dr Josephine Perry as it is one of the effective mindset techniques she uses on a daily basis working with both amateur and elite athletes. Sarah Dudgeon has bought her athletic and artistic skills to the box to make the techniques easy to use and fun to work with.
LED MTB lights
The most expensive stocking-filler on our list, but also the most useful (and the most fun!). Riding in the dark is thrilling, and a front facing light bright enough to light her way through the forest and down the trails is the perfect thing for spicing up her riding this winter.
6-Piece Wooden Folding Allen Key Set
'Cute' and 'tool' are two words we never thought we'd see together, yet here is the very thing - an allen key set engraved with a little fox. Small enough to fit into a jersey pocket or saddle bag, it's a must-have for any cyclist.
Clug bike rack
Practicality meets innovation with CLUG, the world's smallest bike rack. This satisfying storage solution is available in 5 sizes to fit a range of tyre sizes and ideal for those short on space. We love an attractive storage solution, especially if it means we can keep our cherished bikes in the dry and warm.
