Rumour has it, Santa Claus is delivering Christmas on an e-cargo bike this year, even though the sleigh is proven to stand the test of time. E-bike batteries have come a long way, but we're still not convinced it will go the distance required on a single charge. Therefore, rather than trusting the man in the red suit's new mode of transport, we recommend you pick up some Christmas gifts for the cyclist in your life, just in case.

Christmas is closing in fast, and you may have already had a look through our pick of some great Christmas gifts for cyclists, but there's still a bit of time to hunt down the best Christmas cycling deals and have them delivered ahead of the big day. Fortunately, we've done some of the leg work for you, so rather than spending the next three hours multi-tabbing your way through various retailers' pre-Christmas sales, just scroll down. We've kindly picked out the best last-minute Christmas gifts and deals for the cyclist in your life.
