Over the next few days I’m going to post some fab Christmas present suggestions for the cyclist in your life! Or yourself, of course!!!
First, here’s something for the mountain biker in your life (assuming that a full carbon downhill rig is out of budget!).
The team behind Ridden.CC are mountain bikers based in the Surrey Hills, and their new range of t-shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies, posters and mugs are a celebration of our favourite trails, both local and beyond – and of mountain biking in general. The t-shirt above is one of my favourites and is a homage to Barry Knows Best, the much loved descent across Holmbury Hill and down to Peaslake. It’s a trail I ride at least once a week so I feel fully entitled to wear it (and thank you, guys, for sending me this one!). I love the ‘tyre track’ trees and the suggestion of the trail running through them.
Btw, and as you can see here, the gear is not all Surrey Hills related…
…and so do check out the rest of the range if your gift-ee rides further afield!
This Peaslake trail mug would make a great stocking filler too – with hours of fun to be had ticking off the trails you’ve just enjoyed, while slurping that essential post-ride cup of tea.
So, here’s the at-a-glance lowdown:
What: Barry Knows Best (forest) t-shirt £24.99 (t-shirts start at £19.99) and Peaslake Trails Mug £10.99
Who for: the clothes are probably for the male mountain biker in your life as the women’s fit options and kids sizes are currently limited. Mugs, of course, are fun for all.
Why: A win-win case of ‘Been there, ridden that, got the t-shirt’.
What else: At the time of going publishing, if you spend £25 or more at the site you can get a free poster worth £14.99!
