Castelli espresso schwag - we have a winner!

A pair of strictly limited promo cups could be yours

Well, 1,135 of you entered but there can only be one winner of our fabulous and strictly limited Castelli espresso cups. So step forward...


So the cups are off to Oxfordshire but there'll be plenty of other opportunities to win stuff coming right along. Including a bike. And another bike. Stay tuned!


Schwag grab! Schwag grab! There’s a Schwag grab going on!

Is not the most generous bike-based website out there? Answer: no, not really, but we are lucky enough to know some generous people… like the good folk at Italian clothing brand Castelli. When we went to pay them a visit at Eurobike, they gave us these super-stylish espresso cups for a Schwag Grab.

“You horrible lot can’t keep them yourselves,” they said. “But you can give them away to your lovely readers.”

So here they are, all the way back from Germany in our motorhome without any damage. What we have are a pair of cups, each displaying the Castelli scorpion logo on one side and the line ‘You know you’re getting an unfair advantage’ on the other. They’re high-quality cups with plenty of heft to them so they’ll hold onto the heat of your coffee.

Castelli had just 100 pairs of these cups made and they’re not available to buy, not even for a zillion pounds, so the winner really will be getting something special. We’re jealous.
