In case you’ve been living under a rock for the last month or so (or just riding your bike and avoiding high streets) we’ll start by reminding you it’s Mother’s Day THIS Sunday.
If you’re a mum who loves to ride, we’ve compiled a helpful cycling themed wish list for you to pass on to your family. We suggest adding the page to your favourites, or pin the perfect item on the fridge.
If you’ve got a mum who enjoys spending time on two wheels, this list should help you get some ideas on what to treat her with on Sunday.
Primal Cycling Socks
We've been raving over the new sock designs from Primal. They're fun, colourful and not to mention, constructed from great tech fabric.
Sharks, pandas, ice-cream and robots. Brighten up your mum's feet, and pop a spring in her pedal stroke with a pair of these fab cycling socks. Their wonderful range of fun cycle-friendly socks is available here from £7.

All styles are available in black, white, or black and white, and they cost €10 (with a €5 shipping fee) from Giorgia in Dublin. We’re just a bit sad that there isn’t a cat option.
