Pop along to see Pro Vision at the Cycle Show and you could win yourself a thousand pounds worth of custom cycling kit. You'll find them on stand C19D and all you have to do is leave them your details and you will be entered in a prize draw which will take place at the end of the show on Sunday. You can check out their 2009 range of kit too, well it'd be rude not to. Then all you have to do is sit back, wait for the inevitable call and get to it with crayons, swatches and moodboards (that's a fashion type thing isn't it?). The prize is £1000 worth of cycling kit customised to your design, and hey! It doesn't even say “within reason” so the lucky winner can really let the old creative juices rip, but no plaid mind, that's ours. Top right is one the Pro Vision guys did earlier… with a topical theme. This year's Cycle Show runs from the from the 10th -12th of October at Earls court in London. We will be there too on stand D13a, so come and say hello. road.cc users who book in advance at www.cycleshow.co.uk/STM (entering the code “STM” , so they know we sent you*) will get a fiver off the walk up on the day price (which is £14) giving you extra cash to spend in the retail zone. *To book by phone call 0844 848 0122
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.
