Oh, I do love Autumn. The colours are vibrant, the cyclo-cross season is in full swing, the crunching leaves beneath the tyres, and of course... Halloween is coming!

It's the one time of year when we can get a little crafty, think as far out of the box as possible and really impress our friends with our handy skills. Why leave your best companion out of the action though? Dress up the bike and hit the streets, races and those Halloween parties in true spooky fashion.

You still have some time to concoct a potion to transform your steed into the stuff of nightmares, and unicorns though. To get your ideas kick-started, here are some of our favourite Halloween costumes for cyclists...
