You may have noticed that every week we preview/brag about some of the coolest-looking kit, bikes and tech we’ve been out testing prior to the reviews being published… for this special festive edition though, we’re giving you the chance to show us some of the best, most interesting or downright silliest bike-related things you’ve got for Christmas, and our five favourites will each win a pair of road.cc socks!
Whether it’s destined to become your new favourite toy, or you were forced to make a grimacing smile before turning your thoughts to ebaying the undesirable gift before teatime, send us a photo (preferably with a bit of description and backstory if possible) and if it makes our list we’ll send you a pair of highly desirable road.cc cycling socks.
You can send us your submissions in a number of ways: in the comments section underneath this article, via our Facebook or Twitter pages or by emailing info [at] road.cc. We’ll be judging over Christmas and Boxing day (deadline for entries is 10pm on December 26th), and the article will appear on the 27th. If you’re a winner you will receive a message of congratulations and a request for a delivery address, and we’ll post the prizes in January when our NYE hangovers have settled - you can’t say fairer than that.
Here’s an example to start us off, our very own Tass with her highly-prized bike pizza cutter she was thrilled to receive last Christmas. Best of luck, and Merry Christmas to all!
After cobbling together a few hundred quid during his student days off the back of a hard winter selling hats (long story), Jack bought his first road bike at the age of 20 and has been hooked ever since. He was Staff Writer at 220 Triathlon magazine for two years before joining road.cc in 2017, and reports on all things tech as well as editing the road.cc live blog. He is also the news editor of our electric-powered sister site eBikeTips. Jack's preferred events are time trials, sportives, triathlons and pogo sticking (the latter being another long story), and on Sunday afternoons he can often be found on an M5 service station indulging in his favourite post-race meal of 20 chicken nuggets, a sausage roll, caramel shortbread and a large strawberry milkshake.
