Win a pair of Reynolds Attack Wheels and a holiday to try them out on!

Rpm90 and Upgrade bikes have joined forces to sort out a prize fund worth over £2,000...

It's January so it's the traditional time to start planning your cycling exploits for the year while it's murky and cold out. A trip to Italy would be nice, yes? To Tuscany, to ride the famous Strade Bianche? And how about if you could have some flash new wheels into the bargain? Well, you're in luck. Well, one of you is.

Rpm90, purveyors of fine road cycling tours, are running a weekend in Tuscany this April (18-21 April), based in the stunning hilltop village of Radda in Chianti. You'll get three days of the finest Tuscan riding with a support crew, and three nights of top Italian cuisine. All this would normally set you back £895 but Rpm90 have a place up for grabs in their compo. What's more, they've teamed up with Reynolds, who supply their neutral service wheelsets, to offer a free set of Attack Carbon clinchers worth £1099.99 into the bargain. That's a prize worth just shy of two grand. They'll even pay for your flights. How great is that?

To enter, head over to the Rpm90 website or visit Upgrade at the London Bike Show this weekend, stand LB1120. They'll be picking a lucky winner out of the hat on 1 March. You'll need to be available to swan out to the continent between Thursday 18 and Sunday 21 April, too, because that's when the holiday is.

You can comment below if you want, but it ain't going to help you. Just sayin'.

'You'll have to find your own way out to Italy but that's no great hardship, is it?' Surprise

Not for me sadly, I would definitely have some hardship at the moment getting to Italy.

Reminds me of a time about 14 years ago now that my Mum called and told me that 2 of my sisters were getting married next year at the same time... in the Dominican Republic and could I afford to come? The wedding/holiday package was about £3000 and I was earning £7500 a year (pre minimum wage.) Crying

By the end of the year I had about fifteen hundred so I did InterRail for a month instead. Devil

They did have a UK reception though 'for anyone who couldn't make it.'
Arr, the 90's, so long ago.

The site says 'Flights from UK airport to Pisa and return included.' hopefully including your bike. You will need travel insurance and some flapjacks.
So no sob story, I will chance my arm.

My husband would love me forever if I gave him new wheels. Well, for a few more years anyway. I properly love Italy as well. How romantic is that?

I know (a) that commenting here has no effect on the draw; and (b) they're largely fishing for contact details, but I'm a sucker for competitions, even though I'm not going to win.
