With the holiday cheer come the cold chills of shopping dread. When it comes to fun and novel cycling gifts for ladies, Google searches rarely turn up anything that isn’t glittery, pink and purple or covered in flowers, but there are plenty of items that fit the first description without being the latter. Here are a few items that would appeal to the casual weekend warrioress or the bicycle-obsessed lady who would be unrecognizable to her own family without her helmet.
Girl Bike Love kit >> $75-$95 (jersey), $155 (bibs)
Girl Bike Love is this writer’s favorite by-women-who-ride, for-women-who-ride resource to find out what’s going on in the world of cyclo-femmes and catch up with the girls.

Wear the colors, because the name says it all. Girl. Bike. Love. The Century Jersey is $75, the Women’s Ascent Jersey runs $95, Women’s Ascent Shorts are available for $110 and Women’s Summit Bib Shorts are $155.
