The holiday season is upon us once again, and many people are finding themselves in the endless search for present for their friends and families. If you have a motocross rider in your family, their are a number of great gifts which will make them have an even happier Christmas morning. Here are some of my (and a few recommended by readers on Twitter) holiday gift ideas for the motocross rider in your family.
SixSixOne MX-1 Thin Socks
Socks seem like a simple product for motocross racers, but they are essential for a happy racing season. Often overlooked by riders in the midst of racing, training, and practicing, socks can wear out in a matter of weeks. Make your riders season happier in a subtle way by purchasing these socks. The SIxSixOne MX-1 Thin Socks are thick where you need them to be, and thin where to don't to keep your feet cool during long summer motos.
Scott Voltage ProAir Goggles
Just like socks, goggles are a often overlooked part of ever riders gear bag which can have drastic changes in their performance. Scott Goggles, one of the premier goggle manufacturers in the world has recently come out with a revised edition of their Voltage Goggles. More functional and stylish than ever, these are a great way to make your rider happy for many motos to come.
As my interest in cycling has brown over the past few months, I decided that as long as the weather was decent, I would cycle to my Aunt/Uncle/Cousins' house in Rhode Island for Thanksgiving. Thankfully, the weather was perfect fall riding weather and I was able to successfully complete my ride. The ride was nothing special in terms of terrain, temperature, or distance, however it was fun and I figured I would right up a small ride report.
What I Wore
When I left my house at about 10:30AM Thanksgiving morning it was about 40°F, and the high for the day was 45°F, so I bundled up pretty good to make sure I was warm throughout the ride. Here is what I wore:
- Cannondale Surpass Bib Shorts
- Burton Snowboarding Socks
- Peal Izumi Quest Jersey
- Hot Chillys Peppers Fleece
- Burton Pipe Gloves
Overall, my outfit was really effective. I was warm overall although on certain sections of the ride I got a little hot or a little cold, but that is almost unavoidable when riding in and out of shadows. A lot of the gear I wore was not cycling specific, but actually snowboarding gear. I just started cycling, and have been snowboarding for years, so I have a lot of snowboarding gear and would rather not spend hundreds of dollars on cycling specific winter riding gear.
