News to warm a cyclist on a cold day, the CTC is extending its festive gift membership offer of a free Combi Fleece Buff until the 15th of January.
So if you fancy giving someone special* the double benefits of toasty headwear/neckwear and CTC membership simply call 0844 736 8451 and quote the code: Buff (tell 'em road.cc sent you too).
Aside from the warm inner glow of knowing that you are supporting the UK's biggest, oldest, and most respected cycle campaigning organisation CTC membership offers some very real benefits too including: £10m worth of third party insurance, a bi-monthly magazine, loads of discounts on bikes and kit, organised group rides and events, advice and information, and a weekly e-newsletter… oh, and that Buff is worth £18.
There are various categories of CTC membership that you can give as a gift:
Adult Membership £36.00
5 Year Fee Commuted £144.00 (1year Free!) – probably shouldn't say it, but this one does seem to limit future free Buff opportunities
Under 18 / Full time student under 26 £12.00
Family Membership £58.50 – it's one Buff per family, we checked.
Senior (65+) Membership £22.50
Senior 5 Year Fee Commuted £90.00 (1year Free!)
Unwaged Membership £22.50
You can find out more about CTC membership and their gift offer on this special pages on the CTC Website.
*We're guessing that someone special includes giving yourself a gift
Plucked from the obscurity of his London commute back in the mid-Nineties to live in Bath and edit bike mags our man made the jump to the interweb back in 2006 as launch editor of a large cycling website somewhat confusingly named after a piece of navigational equipment. He came up with the idea for road.cc mainly to avoid being told what to do… Oh dear, issues there then. Tony tries to ride his bike every day and if he doesn't he gets grumpy, he likes carbon, but owns steel, and wants titanium. When not on his bike or eating cake Tony spends his time looking for new ways to annoy the road.cc team. He's remarkably good at it.
