Jake T · December 03, 2021
Struggling to know what to buy a biker for Christmas? Worry not… we’ve got you covered. Here at RideTo we know exactly what you need to get you out on the road so we’ve put together a list of 5 of the best gifts to buy a biker this year.
The New Rider Journal is the perfect resource for anyone starting out in the world of two wheels. Packed to the brim with helpful information to prepare for their CBT training and on to their full licence should they wish. You will find useful information about the highway code as well as information on the very best gear and motorcycles on the market. To top it all off there are a great selection of motorcycle destinations and routes so they can really make sure they’re getting the most out of their bike.
Give the gift of two wheels by booking in a CBT training course. CBT or Compulsive Basic Training typically takes between 6 and 8 hours and is the first step to getting out on the road on two wheels. The rider's age will factor in what capacity motorcycle they can ride. You can find more about what happens on a CBT here.
Prices can vary depending on location and availability but you can typically expect a CBT to be between £140 and £195.
The New Rider Journal, L plates and a Neck Warmer. Everything you need to set out on the road, L plates are a legal requirement for anyone riding a 50-125cc motorcycle/scooter on a CBT licence. A good neck warmer is an absolute must, no matter the experience of the rider and the New Rider Journal is packed full of useful information to arm them with knowledge and confidence when setting off.
