Today is Blue Monday, reputed to be the most depressing day of the year, so why not cheer yourself up and enter our competition?

mtb blue monday comp 1

It’s the day when the perfect storm of negative influences peak and come crashing down on our New Years optimism.

The weather is bad, the days are short, payday is still a long way off, it’s a Monday, and we may have begun to fall off our new years resolutions wagon. Combine each of these factors into an (not at all scientific) equation and hey presto - one of the last Monday’s in January is ‘officially’ filled with gloom and disappointment.

Our response? Firstly, a quick bike ride provides a great pick-me-up if you are feeling a bit down. Secondly, we always find the chance to win cycling goodies helps lift our mood.

So we’ve selected a few choice offerings from our cupboard of kit to give the mountain bikers amongst you something to smile about.

What you could win:

Jerseys, shorts, sunglasses – we’ve got a collection of different items to give out, so we’ll be randomly picking a few winners to receive one or two of the items below, with a few extra bits and pieces thrown in for good measure.

  2. Specialized Shasta Jersey
  3. Sombrio Windy Pass Shorts
