Happy December everybody! Where has 2015 gone! Christmas is just around the corner *lets out an excited squeal*! If you’re anything like me, you’ll have been trawling the internet for fabulous finds to add to your Christmas cycling wishlist.
Whilst kit is always a welcome addition and I wouldn’t turn my nose up at a new bike either (nudge, nudge, just in case you’re reading this Mr OCG!), I’ve seen some gorgeous homeware items which I think would look very lovely in any cyclist’s home.

Christmas is just around the corner! Mulled wine is on the stove and the fire is lit. The trees, the fields and the roof tops are all covered with frost. It’s starting to feel very magical! The goose is getting fat and quite frankly it’s a given that I will put on a few pounds over the Christmas period, so what better motivation to get back on the bike on Boxing day (or may be the day after depending on the hangover from the big day) than some stylish new kit – hopefully very kindly left by Santa under the Christmas tree.

Unfortunately I didn’t get to go out cycling this weekend even though the sunny weather was screaming out for a ride on two wheels, but last week, whilst out in the country lanes around the Vale of Belvoir, I spotted two new lambs; the first sighting of the season for me and a lovely reminder that Spring is here…although it would be great if Mother Nature could also do her best to make a more permanent change to the temperatures (it is suddenly rather nippy again here today in Notts).
With Spring’s arrival imminent, it has got me thinking about new kit and the loads of lovely new cycling things that are out there right now. With that in mind, here is the first of my top 5 cycling wish lists. (It’s a shame my birthday has already passed and Christmas is quite some way off, but hey, I can always dream.) (more…)
