We could be rather obvious for Valentine's Day and direct you to all the items adorned in red, but then that would be boring. Instead we thought we would share with you what our Vixens would love for their better-halves to treat them to.

Forget limp bouquets and gaudy teddy bears - if you're stuck for what Valentine's present to treat your bicycle-crazed loved one to, then have a look through what Kirsty has hinted to her husband.

All kit and accessories featured in this blog were available Valentine's 2015. For the latest ideas, visit our Style Guide page.


Suzy Q Necklace - £20

What girl doesn't love a bit of jewellery from her other half? The beauty of this bicycle necklace from Suzy Q is that it is subtle, supremely elegant and can be worn dressed-down at work or even on glitzy nights out. Better still, it won't break the bank at just £20.

Ginger & French Prints - £24

Forget your other half, these super cool prints from Ginger & French will help showcase to all of your house guests the love you have for cycling. It is true that you can't move in Kirsty's house for bicycle artwork and she would love to have one of these adorning the walls soon. She may just have to take down those wedding photographs to make space...

Sawako Furuno Leopard Helmet - £84

Ever since joining VeloVixen, Kirsty has fawned after the Leopard print Sawako Furuno helmet. After a rather epic crash, her trusty skid-lid has bitten the dust so she's in dire need of a stylish new helmet. Someone get on the phone to Gavin (hubby) pronto to get this sorted!

Vulpine UltraLight Quilted Thermal Gilet - £119

As a mum to Dexter the Labradoodle, Kirsty hunts for clothes that are suitable for cycling and walking in. She swears by gilets and admitting to owning 10+ of the beauties. Unfortunately this stunning Vulpine Navy number still eludes her collection and we know it would make her day if she had this in her wardrobe.

Veeka Cycling Gloves - From £20

A fan of the retro, Kirsty has a penchant for these classic leather cycling gloves. As there's a glove-shaped hole in the outfit she plans to wear for Eroica Britannia this year, these stunners would fit nicely in the theme and are remarkably light on the wallet too for such fine quality!

British Cycling membership - From £20

It might not be the most romantic gift - but then Kirsty can never be labelled as a traditional romantic - however British Cycling membership lasts a year and offers loads of lovely bubbly benefits, tips and discounts that keep giving long after the heart-shaped chocolates have been eaten!

Alternatively, forget the presents and just get out on your bike with your beloved! It's free and fun! Undoubtedly Kirsty will be dragging her long suffering husband out around the Cotswolds, so do wave if you see them!
