The hours are ticking down and if you are anything like me you haven’t checked off everyone on your list. Below is a list of essentials that every cyclist, or budding cyclist, needs in their arsenal. Here’s to finishing up the shopping so we can all enjoy the holidays properly!

Essentials for the Bike
Every cyclist needs these, just figure out what type of bike they have (road, mountain, hybrid, etc.) and then if they have a skinny valve like below, called presta, or a standard shrader like on your car.
There are many great lubes out there, but T-9 is my go to recommendation for most cyclists out there.
All you need to do is add a tube to this bag and it is ready to be strapped to your bike. CO2 for easy inflation, tire levers and patch kits to keep you rolling.
Rear Blinky Light
You need a rear light, so does your loved ones.
Soft Good Essentials
Defeet Wool Socks
It’s that time of year in Colorado that my Defeet Wool socks are being worn as often as they are clean, and sometimes even when they are dirty.
TwinSix Tall Socks
Favorite summer socks, ever.
Super Packable Jacket
While I would prefer you bought it in a different color other than black, this super packable jacket can go in your jersey pocket or backpack very easy.
