Like to win with Knog! Head over to our Facebook page for the chance to win a PWR Mountain

We've teamed up with the good people at Knog to give away four amazing prizes over four weeks, and all you have to do is like a post on Facebook to be in with the chance of winning.....

You might have already noticed three competitions over on our Facebook page the last few of Fridays, giving you a chance to win some very handy Knog lights... and the final comp is now up and running! 

15 of the best rear lights

All of our lucky winners so far will be brighter this winter and beyond, and now you have the chance to be too with our fourth and final comp to win a Knog PWR Mountain.

All you have to do is click 'like' in the embedded post below to enter, or go over to our Facebook page here and 'like' it.

The competition closes on Monday 5th November at 12 noon, after which we will pick our winners at random and message them through Facebook to arrange delivery through Knog's UK distributor Silverfish. Do keep an eye on your Facebook 'message request' folder if you've given any of the posts a like. 

UK entries only, and very best of luck to all! 

Arriving at road.cc in 2017 via 220 Triathlon Magazine, Jack dipped his toe in most jobs on the site and over at eBikeTips before being named the new editor of road.cc in 2020, much to his surprise. His cycling life began during his students days, when he cobbled together a few hundred quid off the back of a hard winter selling hats (long story) and bought his first road bike - a Trek 1.1 that was quickly relegated to winter steed, before it was sadly pinched a few years later. Creatively replacing it with a Trek 1.2, Jack mostly rides this bike around local cycle paths nowadays, but when he wants to get the racer out and be competitive his preferred events are time trials, sportives, triathlons and pogo sticking - the latter being another long story.

Facebook? Nope. Not doing it - on a point of principle. (Only mentioned as feedback.)

If the competition is to promote FB then fair enough, but it isn't, it's a competition to win some lights. Therefore legitimate to comment that you cannot join in as you don't do FB. If enough people don't do FB then it will be helpful to the marketing people at the likes of Knog and maybe they will spend more of their advertising budget directly to benefit the likes of Road.cc who I am sure are more deserving of the revenue stream.

I have some Knog lights and they are very good. I don't have and don't want a FB account.

I get it. No worries and I really do not feel hard done by. I cannot feel free to carry on though; because I don't have a Facebook account

It's not the best analogy, you're right and i'm no fan of Facebook. I'm just bored of things that are headed 'Do so-and-so on Facebook and have a chance to win X' followed by the usual '...but i'm not on Facebook !!' posts. The clue is in the title, wait for another contest. There's a reason why things are hosted on Facebook,  and not just on websites - in this case that means people without an account can't enter that particular promotion, and the ones that do have an account and enter will help road.cc from that participation. Meh. I don't have a Twitter, Instagram or pretty much any other social media account, but I don't feel compelled to comment when a promotion appears on one of those platforms - I just don't enter. Feel free to carry on of course, I just find it dull and rather meaningless.

My grumble was that an increasing number of road.cc competitions seem to be only available to the Acolytes of Zuckerberg. I'm not on any soshul meeja, which is why I read a "real" website...

I suddenly feel the need to pop over to bbcgoodfood.com, track down the rhubarb recipes and say "Well I don't even like rhubarb - so you can just count me out !"

Only problem being is that I like knog lights and can also access bbcgoodfood.com (if there is a place, which I am sure there is). Unfortunatey I do not care for Facebook and do not have an account, so this is the only reason why I am out. I don't see the correlation between my like for Knog and your dislike for rhubarb, interesting though that that may be.

Imagine if you did like rhubarb and the BBC had loads of great recipes, so you visit the website only to see that you need a FaceBook account to read the recipes? Then you notice that there is a general trend of the recipes only being made available to FaceBook users - would you not feel like letting the BBC know that they are excluding you?

I occassionally had to agree to have some at home as the only way to get the custard (which did help somewhat - that and about 2 oz / square inch of Demerara)
