You may have noticed that every week we preview/brag about some of the coolest-looking kit, bikes and tech we’ve been out testing prior to the reviews being published… for this special festive edition though, we’re giving you the chance to show us some of the best, most interesting or downright silliest bike-related things you’ve got for Christmas, and our five favourites will each win a pair of road.cc socks!
Whether it’s destined to become your new favourite toy, or you were forced to make a grimacing smile before turning your thoughts to ebaying the undesirable gift before teatime, send us a photo (preferably with a bit of description and backstory if possible) and if it makes our list we’ll send you a pair of highly desirable road.cc cycling socks.
You can send us your submissions in a number of ways: in the comments section underneath this article, via our Facebook or Twitter pages or by emailing info [at] road.cc. We’ll be judging over Christmas and Boxing day (deadline for entries is 10pm on December 26th), and the article will appear on the 27th. If you’re a winner you will receive a message of congratulations and a request for a delivery address, and we’ll post the prizes in January when our NYE hangovers have settled - you can’t say fairer than that.
Here’s an example to start us off, our very own Tass with her highly-prized bike pizza cutter she was thrilled to receive last Christmas. Best of luck, and Merry Christmas to all!
Arriving at road.cc in 2017 via 220 Triathlon Magazine, Jack dipped his toe in most jobs on the site and over at eBikeTips before being named the new editor of road.cc in 2020, much to his surprise. His cycling life began during his students days, when he cobbled together a few hundred quid off the back of a hard winter selling hats (long story) and bought his first road bike - a Trek 1.1 that was quickly relegated to winter steed, before it was sadly pinched a few years later. Creatively replacing it with a Trek 1.2, Jack mostly rides this bike around local cycle paths nowadays, but when he wants to get the racer out and be competitive his preferred events are time trials, sportives, triathlons and pogo sticking - the latter being another long story.
