#MyCyclingWeekend with Decathlon - Hail hurts faces

Who won the Triban RC 500 Winter Gloves?

I'd like to begin by confirming that hail hurts your face, especially when riding into a strong headwind.

While Sunday wasn't the nicest day for a bike ride, Saturday was perfect down in the West Country and there were loads of riders out on the roads and in the cafes.

The sun even made a little appearance and we can see from your photos that the roads even dried out in places!

The air is still pretty chilly though, so Decathlon has offered our winner a toasty-warm set of Triban RC 500 winter gloves.

 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Haven’t ridden my bike in over 3 months. 250km was a bit punchy for first one back #Audax #Audaxuk #mycyclingweekend

Taking the gloves this week is Rory who, after 3 months off the bike, decided to ease himself back in with a casual 250km. Bonkers!

If you want to win yourself a pair of gloves then check back on Friday when we'll have another chance to win. For now, here are some of the brilliant entries from the weekend.

This mornings TCG shitlaning ride. 3497 feet (about 1060 metres in new money) of up in 37 miles. Not bad going. Love the slightly surreal feeling of being the only people out and about riding through shitty lanes, crap weather and killer climbs at a ridiculously early hour on a Sunday morning, when most people are still asleep. Think you’ve got what it takes to come on a TCG ride? It’s not easy! If you do, then you can apply by turning up to the Conygre hall, Timsbury, at 7:30am, every Sunday. Bring coffee money. #mycyclingweekend @decathlonuk_cycling #highlittleton #tunley #radstock #midsomernorton #eastharptree #westharptree #mendips #paulton #cycling #kask #wymtm #fromwhereiride #outsideisfree #roadcc #cannondale #boardmanbikes #orbea #lazerhelmets #owayo #giantbikes #shimano #southwestisbest #cyclingheaven #lazerhelmets #rosebikes #orbea #Oakley #cyclingweekly #roadcc #fuckzwift

Son of a Marathon runner, Nephew of a National 24hr Champion, the racing genetics have completely passed him by. After joining the road.cc staff in 2016 as a reviewer, Liam quickly started writing feature articles and news pieces. After a little time living in Canada, where he spent most of his time eating poutine, Liam returned with the launch of DealClincher, taking over the Editor role at the start of 2018. At the weekend, Liam can be found racing on the road both in the UK and abroad, though he prefers the muddy fields of cyclocross. To date, his biggest race win is to the front of the cafe queue.
