Follow London bike maker's Christmas gift game online...

Condor Cycles is entering into the Christmas spirit with a 12 Days of Condor game that starts today – and if you follow them on Twitter, you’re in with a chance of winning, too.

Over the next 12 days, Condor will post a Christmas gift idea each day on its website, featuring products from brands such as Rapha, Mavic, and Giro. Lights – well, it is Christmas, although we assume these are destined for the bike, not the tree – and signed books will also be among the suggestions.

And each day, one of Condor’s followers on the social networking site Twiitter will have the chance of winning that day’s featured item. To be in with a chance, simply log on to the site – it’s easy to set up an account if you don’t already have one – and tweet, or retweet, the words: @condorcycles 12 Days Game – www.condorcycles.com/12daysofcondor.

Users have to wait until each day’s entry has been posted on the website before tweeting, and entry is limited to one per person per day.

Up for grabs today, the first day of the competition, is the book Custom Bicycles: A Passionate Pursuit, but you’d better be quick – entries need to be in by 5pm each day, which only gives you a couple of hours. Good luck, and let us know if you bag any schwag over the next 12 days!

And for those who don’t win, all the products are of course available to buy from Condor’s shop on Gray’s Inn Road.

Born in Scotland, Simon moved to London aged seven and now lives in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds with his miniature schnauzer, Elodie. He fell in love with cycling one Saturday morning in 1994 while living in Italy when Milan-San Remo went past his front door. A daily cycle commuter in London back before riding to work started to boom, he's been news editor at road.cc since 2009. Handily for work, he speaks French and Italian. He doesn't get to ride his Colnago as often as he'd like, and freely admits he's much more adept at cooking than fettling with bikes.
