Gift ideas for the triathletes, cyclists and runners on your "nice" list

Do you have somebody on your gift giving list that somehow knows a shocking number of town names in Belgium and The Netherlands? Or perhaps they have pet with an Italian name? Maybe they disappear into the basement or garage every night from November to March, only to emerge after 2 hours of whirring noises, drenched in sweat and wobbling around like Bambi on ice?  

If the answer to any of these questions is "yes", then you've got a cyclist and we've got the gifts that will make them shout "Bellisima!"
