December 8/11 12:42 pm - Canadian Cyclist Christmas Gift Guide - Day 1
Posted by Editoress on 12/8/11
By now, we have all been subject to the cheesy Christmas carols in malls, as we hunt for gifts to give family and friends. The cyclist can be difficult to buy for - especially to a non-cycling giver - so Canadian Cyclist has put together a list of cycling-related presents that are sure to please the rider on your list. Over the next twelve days [Twelve Days of Christmas ... get it?], we will provide a wide range of ideas - big and small - to fit every budget.
We begin with some gifts that truly fit with this season of giving: the present of a bicycle to someone who doesn't have one. UNICEF Canada is always an important charity to support, and for this Christmas they have two cycling options. For $86 you can donate a bicycle to a child who doesn't have one - with your donation you can help with transportation and expand their world. For $120 you can help a whole community by paying for a Mobile Health Unit - a bicycle equipped with a vaccine carrier and vaccines for measles and polio (50 of each).

We urge everyone to consider making these gifts part of their Christmas.
