This group of cyclists is typically very selective about their equipment, and it can be tough to know what they'll appreciate. Fortunately, there are a few gift ideas that most touring cyclists are sure to enjoy. One gift item that just about any cyclist would appreciate is a gift certificate to their favorite bike shop. This is a great option if you're unsure about what specific gear they need or want, as it allows them to choose for themselves. They can use the gift certificate to stock up on bike maintenance items, cycling clothing, or other gear they need for their upcoming tours. If you prefer to actually get them a gift instead of a gift card, then you probably can't go wrong with a nice quality insulated water bottle.

Not only can a local bike shop provide you with personalized service and access to professional bike services, but it can also offer numerous other advantages that are hard to find elsewhere. I know firsthand the benefits of choosing a local bike shop. I owned a Specialized AWOL that had about 30,000 miles on it, which I had purchased from a local bike shop that I really like and use all the time for bicycle-related gear and service. One day, the bicycle chainstay cracked in half, and I took it to the bike shop, just wanting to see if anything could be done to fix it. The picture with this article is the actual cracked bike.
