Holiday Gift Guide: For the Bicyclist

November 16, 2012

My friend Dave is a serious cyclist—a few summers ago, he took a three-month-long bicycle trip across the US. He jumped on his bike in Washington State and ended his road trip in Maine (a few flats got in the way, but other than that he refers to it as “the trip of a lifetime”). One of the highlights of the trip: He filled a bottle of water from the Pacific Ocean and dumped it in the Atlantic Ocean. Here are a few gift items I’m considering for Dave:
