Looking for cycling Christmas gifts? Hackney GT have got some suggestions.

 

You know how it is, your great-aunt Mabel insists on buying you a little cycling Christmas gift and it’s always terrible! So this year why not drop her a hint and point her towards Hackney GT? They’ve got some quality items that won’t break the bank and you’ll actually use them. So unless you want to receive the Ultimate Guide to Cycling box set, get hinting!

First up is the Hackney GT Neck Warmer. I’ve been converted to these recently and have found them great on and off the bike. Hackney GT have three natty designs on offer; Betty, Robi and Camo. Betty is Hackney’s leopard print design, perfect for all you TOWIE fans! Robi is a monochrome play on their logo and probably the most discreet. I’m sporting the Camo version, a multi-coloured take on everyone’s military favourite. Although I won’t be fading into any background with those colours.

 

Made from a soft and silky synthetic, they scrunch up small for when you don’t need them. When the temperature starts to dip, they can be pulled out and used as a scarf, balaclava, or off the bike as very fetching pirate head scarf! The three designs also match Hackney GT jackets, arm warmers and shorts, so you can make sure your kit matches, very pro. Made in the UK and at only £14 your relatives will hardly begrudge the cost.

If you’ve been good perhaps the family will be willing to fork out a little more? Then how about a Hackney GT Alpine Bobble Hat? These are knitted in the last (and still family run) knitwear factory in Nottingham using 100% Merino wool. The wool is spun by Italian company Miroglio and has a TEC (Total Easy Care) treatment, which means the hat can be machine washed on a delicate cycle. Perfect for spectating at chilly ‘cross races, or just to let everyone know your persuasion when not wearing lycra. Available from Hackney GT’s website for £28.

And if you’ve been very good, or maybe as a little gift for yourself, why not try one of Hackney GT’s Windtext jackets? They come in five designs, including Camo, Betty and the spectacularly Christmassy Alpine. Perfect for getting your all the way from Autumn through to Spring, they’re windproof and water-resistant.
