Three chances to win a jolly good cycling read for Christmas

Right, afternoon snacks have been taken - Tunnock's Snowballs were the snack du jour – the chestnuts were taking absolutely ages on the laptop… but I digress. The random number generator has done its stuff and the fickle finger has pointed and we have three winners.

Cyclopedias will be flying their way just as soon as we've got addresses to send them to. We'll whack them in the post pront and hey might even make it to you for Christmas. Maybe

Commiserations to those that lost out, but there will be a next time.

And if your appetite for knowledge has been whetted by this competiton and our recent review which described the Cyclopedia as an informative and entertaining all you can eat buffet of cycling knowledge and trivia, why not nip along to your local bookstore and grab one for yourself anyway.

There's a ton of cycling related stuff crammed into its 440 or so pages as well as obvious stuff like the Tour de France and gears, there are entries on catholicism, sex, and Great Britain. Various legends of the sport such as Merckx and Major Taylor make an appearance as do, subject as diverse as Flancers, Sustrans, the Three Peaks and Defensive cycling.

 

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.
