RIDE Gift Ideas
While thinking what to give the cyclist you know may have caused anxiety attacks in the past, this year it’s easy – at RIDE Cycling Review we’ve got great gift ideas right here on the site. Here is a run-down of what is available to purchase.
Why not send them the gift that keeps giving? The four issues of a RIDE one-year subscription amounts to around 2.7kg of cycling goodness filled with all the analysis, racing reports, commentary, paraphernalia, pro columns, photographs, previews, reviews and content that makes it the best magazine on the market and a reference for years to come. Don’t forget: RIDE subscriptions are available for delivery to New Zealand addresses for $75.00 and International ones for $99.00. Be sure to order the correct subscription depending on your needs.
If that isn’t enough of a reason, subscribing will put the recipient in the draw to win a Shimano Ultegra Di2 upgrade for their bike, valued at $5,225!
Every cyclist wants to feel good on the bike and looking good certainly helps. The RIDE Kit, made by Champion System, will get you noticed on the road and thanks to its comfortable fit, will have you pedalling happily for longer too. The jerseys are ‘Race Cut’ which makes them tight fitting and it is recommended you take a look at their sizing chart and consider going a size larger than you would usually. As with other clothing, if you receive it and find it to be the wrong size, you can exchange it for another size free of charge. Full zip, three rear pockets and the endurance chamois make this a great kit.
There are also RIDE T-Shirts available through the website. Made by A’Qto in Australia, they are a high quality t-shirt that will last. See our range here.
During the Christmas period, a RIDE Accessories Pack is available for purchase. Including a RIDE bidon, cap and pair of socks it could be the gift for you. Order one here.
RIDE has produced the Official Tour de France Guide since 2003 and with this year’s edition reaching 288 pages RIDE is synonymous with Le Tour. Each July, tens of thousands of Australians and New Zealanders watch the coverage of the big race with the Guide next to them calling upon the in-depth previews of the riders, stages and teams within the pages to help them navigate the three-week race. Order one today here.
To celebrate Cadel Evans’ historic victory, we have a limited number of 2011 Tour Collection packs containing the 2011 Official Tour de France Guide and RIDE Issue 53. Click here for more information.
Official Tour de France merchandise is also available for purchase from our website. T-Shirts, mugs and caps would all be well-received present. See our Tour de France section for all products.
Kids sizes are available in a few different designs.
Thanks to the quality of RIDE, past issues retain a relevance to today’s cycling scene that makes them a valuable and often-used resource. Discover where the riders of today started, the past champions of the sport and the history of the races that define its tradition. You will find that the Caffeine Culture section is particularly interesting, as are previous Paraphernalia and Bike Review portions of the magazine. Compare the ‘cutting-edge’ of the past with the technology of today! A full list of available back issues is found here.
The digital edition of RIDE will make it easier than ever to catch up on the real story and discover what makes RIDE Cycling Review different and special. Through Zinio, you can download RIDE straight to your PC, Mac, Ipad, and Android device for you enjoyment anytime, anywhere. You can subscribe for a year or purchase copies individually.
