Which famous cyclist would you cosy up with?

Love is in the air! This is the time of year when your inbox is flooded with Valentine's day offers for the special person in your life, and everyone from shed wholesalers to online survey providers* manages to magically align themselves with cupid's arrow. We're incurable romantics round here though, so we don't mind. Much.

The chaps at Vélolove have been working on a set of ten prints inspired by great relationships within the bike industry. Sort of as a Valentine's thing, but the prints will look splendid on your wall all year round. Anyway they've teamed up with us to offer you the chance to do your own! We'll let Cameron from Vélolove do the explaining bit...

"Here at Velolove.cc we've recently created a set of perfect pairs cycling prints. We had so much fun coming up with the 'loved up' cycle combinations that we thought road.cc readers might like to have a go themselves. As a prize Velolove.cc will offer the best cycle related pairing a bespoke print of their perfect pair just in time for Valentines Day.

"Our pairs (see the gallery above for the full range) include Molteni & Merckx, Bianchi & Celeste, Wiggo & Weller to name a few. But which cyclist would you like to cosy up with? Which cycle brand has captured your heart? What pairs in the cycle industry are the perfect fit? What team turns you on?

"Simply complete either the phrase 'We go together like______&_______' or 'I love you like ________loves_______' for a chance to win. Have as many goes as you like."

So that's it. SImple. Put your thinking cap on and stick your perfect pair in a comment below. Obviously, you can't use anyone that's already been done by Vélolove. We'll sieve through them over a cup of tea on Monday and impartially pick a winner using our huge experience and encyclopaedic knowledge of cycling. Or, we might just choose one that tickles us. Either way, the winner gets a custom-designed print of their pair all nicely wrapped in tissue paper and rolled in a tube, ready for framing. Just in time for Valentine's day.

Here's some terms and conditions: 1) The competition runs until midday, Monday 11 Feb. 2) The winner will receive a custom Velolove print, no cash alternative will be offered. 3) the winner will be contacted via the email address associated with their account. We're not responsible for non-receipt of the winner's email. 4) The judge's decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into.

*We really did get valentine's offers from those two last year

Dave is a founding father of road.cc and responsible for kicking the server when it breaks. In a previous life he was a graphic designer but he's also a three-time Mountain Bike Bog Snorkelling world champion, and remains unbeaten through the bog. Dave rides all sorts of bikes but tends to prefer metal ones. He's getting old is why.
