With more and more women and girls getting into cycling, friends and family may be wondering what to buy for their new found cyclist.
There is a lot of kit and equipment out there and sometimes it’s difficult to know what to pick but there are certain items that would make either great stocking fillers or definitely be a necessity to every female cyclist’s needs.

As well as the Christmas Categories on our regular site we’ve created some special boards on Pinterest.
Here’s the Pinterest board for these Cycling Christmas Gifts for Women…
What the heck is Pinterest?
It’s like an online noticeboard. Or an online scrapbook. Or an online ‘mood board’.
Photos are called ‘pins’. Themed collections of photos are called ‘boards’.
Confused? Just have a look and it will all make sense pretty quick. It’s a visual thang. It’s great for discovering stuff and saving things in a handy way.
