  1. Great timing. It’s getting to that time of year when I have to start thinking about Xmas presents for my cycling mad partner.

    1. That cuts 2 ways. There are a few things on here that would make it onto my wish list for Santa. I may have to leave this page accidentally open on my wife’s laptop.

  2. Stats are a great motivator for me when I’m cycling. Having a cycling computer like the Garmin one should help me to up my game.

  3. Lots of great ideas here for Xmas pressies for my MANIL – Man in Lycra for those of you lucky enough not to be married to a cycling fanatic.

  4. Another good thing about the timing of this post is that we’ve got a few days before Black Friday to get our shopping list together to see what we can pick up in the sale.

  5. The more I cycle the more I come to realise how vital your peripheral vision is when it comes to avoiding accidents and staying alive. It only ever gets tougher on the roads.

    Good to learn that Racetrap agree as they’ve enlarged the field of vision on the latest model of their sunglasses.

  6. Do you think that I’m allowed to copy and paste this page and send it to Santa as my Christmas wish list?

    I’ve already got the water bottle and an older version of the sunglasses but I would happily unwrap anything else from this great selection.
