Holiday Gift Guide — for the Student

Holiday Gift Guide by Calhoun Cycle This week we're excited to share a selection of gifts for the student. When you're commuting to and from campus, biking can help save money (free parking!) and time (convenient parking!). But, when you're a student... the reality is you can't always afford the niceties (and even necessities) that make the commute a little easier. This holiday season, why not treat the scholar in your life to something special? a selection of gift ideas for the bike commuting college student
  1. Delta's Cargonet will hold a lock and a jacket or stretch to fit a large stack of books in a pinch
  2. Klean Kanteen 27 oz. sport bottle
  3. Abus' Bordo lock is the perfect combo. It's both light and compact while being incredibly secure.
  4. Basil Memories Malaga XS makes a great lunch box
  5. The Touchscreen Gloves Kit from Brit & Co. includes conductive thread and needles that will help you give your favorite gloves (and the included pair) touchscreen-friendly fingertips so you can check your schedule on the go while still keeping your hands cozy in the Minnesota winter
  6. Pair the Arkel Bug backpack/pannier with a laptop sleeve from Ortlieb to get your student (and his or her laptop) to and from campus safely
  7. Hamburger Bell
  8. Chocolate Milk Nutcase Helmet
  9. Brighten up a drab dorm room with a BIKE poster by Minneapolis artist Laura Brown. (psst... if you're in Minneapolis, contact Laura for info about local pickup, and mention that you're a Shopcast reader)
  10. Bike commuting 101: Never leave home without reliable rain gear. We love O2's Calhoun jacket for men and the Club Pro jacket from Shower's Pass for women.
  11. Logo Evo rack from Tubus. Set your student up for life: invest in a rack that's built to last.
  12. Bookman Light Set
  13. Woodie 8 Multitool from Soma
