What are the best bikes and kit? Who's done the most for cycling? Let us know...

We've already put our thinking caps on over the Christmas period (helped by a steady flow of mince pies and port) and brought you our bikes of the year for 2017-2018, with the innovative 3T Strada winning the top gong. And now it's your turn! Last year the Bianchi Oltre XR4, the See.Sense Icon, the Castelli Gabba, SRAM Red eTap, Peter Sagan and Chris Boardman hoovered up the awards. Who will it be this year?

> All the bikes of the year in one place

Think back over the last year? What's been good? What bike has really shone out? What gadgets and innovations have captured the imagination? What piece of clothing has had that wow! factor? Who's stood up as a champion of cycling? We want your suggestions.

Here's how it works: You have one week to nominate bikes, products and people using the form below. You don't have to fill in every category if you don't want to. Then we'll look through all the suggestions and curate a list for each category, and put it to vote: You'll need to be a registered user to vote, and you'll only be able to vote once. Then when all the votes are in we'll tot them up and let you know who the winners are. Simple! So get your brains in gear and tell us what's been best in 2017.
