Gift Ideas for the Cyclist

Safety first

Lupine Betty R lamphea
( helmet mount variant)

Any of the Lupine cycling lights or flashlights are terrific. I use mine every day, summer or winter, day or night. Because I want to raise the odds in my favor.

See for example Lupine Piko Dual-LED Lamphead for Daytime Safety, though in the winter I tend to run the powerful Betty R (now 4500 lumens!).

In the USA, get Lupine lightes at Gretna Bikes. Be sure to get the handlebar mount for your bike’s bar.

Add the DiNotte 300R LED Tail-Light and you are set.



Kona Cloud Coffee

Especially in winter, what cyclist wouldn’t like a great cup of pre-ride goodness?

Kona Cloud Coffee Estates is offering 10% off for site readers, via a discount code. When checking out, use to get your discount (type in those eight letters).

I use Rancilio Rocky Doserless Coffee Grinder, which grinds the beans to a consistency that makes a very smooth and very rich brew (I brew one cup at a time). I tend to use a grind much more to the fine-ness of an Espresso grind (setting “10” on the Rancilio); there is no trace of bitterness due to the exceptional quality of the Kona Cloud coffee beans. Which in fact is the only reason I drink coffee now; I was never impressed with regular coffee, finding it rather weak or bitter or both. The matter is now settled.

Bike fit

Get a bike fit NOW so that winter training (lighter and easer) gives you time to adjust to the new fit.
