Tell us what your favourite kind of ride is and you could walk off with a bundle of Vulpine goodies...

We asked to to come on over and tell us what your favourite kind of ride is. And you did, in your hundreds! Obviously the carrot of a bag of Vulpine goodies was on hand to get your creative juices throwing. It's a carrot that can only be eaten by one lucky rabbit though. And by "carrot", "eaten" and "rabbit" we mean "prize", "won" and "reader". I think we're all glad that rather tortured metaphor is over.

Anyway, on to the prize giving. We fired up the random-o-tron and picked one lucky winner for the gilet, jersey and t-shirt. And that lucky winner is DonnyCampo! Their favourite kind of a ride? "Cornish hills, quiet roads, warm sun, with a mid-ride saffron cake and a cappucino." Sounds splendid. And next time they're perusing the cake list for saffrony sustenance, they'll be doing it in some nice new threads. Hurrah.

These are fun, these Vulpine giveaways. For that reason we'll be doing another one soon. Stay tuned!

--------------------------------------------------------

We promised you another Vulpine schwag and here it is! This time there's lots more top quality clothing goodies up for grabs. Our winner will be walking away wearing a Vulpine Cotton Visibility Gilet AND a Vulpine Merino Jersey AND a Vulpine Merino T-Shirt. Not bad, eh?

We're fans of Vulpine's range of stylish, performance oriented clothing round here: it's technical enough to meet the demands of almost any form of cycling, yet casual enough to work off the bike in equally demanding social environments. Even better when it's free...

Just like last time it's a comment-to-enter affair, and this time the question is...

What is your favourite kind of ride?

Answers on a comment below! We'll pick a winner at random next Wednesday. Usual schwag grab rules apply. Good luck!

A ride with a bit of everything but always with good company. Flats, hills, sun & even a shower. It's all about the journey.

A ride of discovery about myself or a route.

Perfect ride for me is a local loop, early in the morning, with a good pub to stop off at for a bite to eat.

A quick hour around Epping Forest with a couple of steep ascents or a trip to Oudenharde in Belgium, riding the classics and pretending I'm Boonen or Merkx.

A nice climb up winding, narrow roads through the forest. A red hot descent. Great scenery, and feeling of being truly alive!

My favourite ride ever was about this time last year, but the weather was the polar opposite to what it is now... 25-26 degrees, no clouds, awesome company and a ninety mile round trip from altrincham, over snake pass, down to hope, beans on toast in a cafe garden, tideswell, buxton, cat and fiddle and home.

that is what i want.

Early morning, sunny ride with a crystal clear sky, with a mate. Makes you feel special being up early enjoying that special time of day when others are still asleep and missing it. Rounding that off with some great coffee sets you up perfectly for the day!

Hills, or mountains. With a coffee break.

A 20 or so mile solo road "time trial", into a headwind on the uphill leg, then downwind downhill on the return leg.

Finish with pizza.

Accompanying my daughter to school. Not challenging or fast, but she's always so excited to ride with her dad. Priceless.

Rain. Lots of it. Hills. Steep ones. And after being soaked and legs completely shot, on the way home, the sun peeks out. RIght before it starts raining down again!
