Holiday Gift Guide Triathletes–The Bike
Oh my goodness, its time to finish up being Santa for the holidays so here is this gift guide triathletes for the bike to help you out!
Time is flying and gift giving season is upon us. As usual I think that I have all of my plans in place and hope to get everything done early but somehow it never happens. The holiday season is busy! We have daily visits from our Elf–Elvie, holiday concerts, holiday parties, Christmas shopping, and the daily bustle and grind of everyday life. Adding to the chaos the Tooth Fairy has had to make 4 stops to our house here this month. My children are both toothless but cute and in need of some new teeth for Christmas. The kids are also about to begin the Bill Koch Cross Country League which is a learn to cross country ski and junior race program that is held in the Burke, Vermont area. We are starting this in hoping to get the kids hooked into doing a sport that we love and its also a great way to stay active and to get outside in the winter. The awesome part is that I get to go and ski with the kids whenever we have practice!
Now its crunch-time. The countdown is on to winter vacation and there is so much wrapping, Christmas cookie making, holiday card stuffing, and elving to do! Since I will be continuing to race triathlons this year (and I can’t wait-This summer I will race Half Ironman Mont Tremblant, maybe the White Mountains Triathlon and then the new Lake Placid Half Ironman) I decided to focus on triathlon for my gift guides. In case you missed it my Holiday Gift Guide Triathletes–The swim can be found by clicking on my link.
Now, without further ado . . .
Gift Guide Triathletes–The Bike
A Triathlon Bike– Prices Vary
This is of course topping my list as I still need a tri bike (I have to get my booty over to FIT WERX a semi-local triathlon store). If you are into triathlon this is the ultimate piece of gear. I am still riding my road bike outfitted with tri bars and I love my bike (her nickname is Sapphire) but I need to take things up a level. Your special triathlete will knock you over with hugs and kisses if they find a tri bike sitting under the tree on Christmas morning
View your ride data and it will sync with your phone! What could be better! This will help to keep you on track to keep you accountable to your coach and on top of your workouts! Wirelessly receive speed, cadence, heart rate, power, call and text notifications.
Trust me! You will need this for those long rides if you are a woman. This makes an excellent stocking stuffer!
Chisel Tri Top and Chisel 5″ Tri Short from SMASHFESTQUEEN -$84 for the top and $89 for the shorts
You will look fast and furious on the race course in this tri kit! You can select a zip top, a top with a built in bra and 7″ or 5″ tri shorts. These sweet kits are brought to you by world class triathlete Hillary Biscay and triathlete and marathoner Michele Landry. So many great designs to choose from!
Sleek designs in a range of colors, these sunglasses come complete with two sets of lenses for differing light conditions. Your eyes will thank you for the protection from the sun, wind and rain.
I could go on and on about all of the amazing gear that would be perfect for the biking portion of the triathlon but now I’m wondering what you would add to my holiday gift guide triathletes list? Please share your thoughts in the comments below.
