It's that time of the year when everything seems to be in slow motion. You're on a post-summer come down, and the darker mornings are zapping away your energy levels. To shake you out of this lull, we've created #Motivember.

We're going to bring you mood boosting tips and tricks to get you out of this funk. There will be a new article for every week of November, and each one will be tailored towards helping you stay motivated all month.

Plus - WIN STUFF

Motivation can be a hard thing to muster up, especially on drizzly mornings. However, to get you up and raring to go, we’ll also be handing out some lovely cycling goodies each week to keep you going.

We've got nutrition gifts from Torq, plus Camelback and Giro accessories to give away. All you'll need to do is tag your pictures with #TWCMotivember - on Twitter and Intsagram or as a comment on our Facebook page.

We'll pick one new winner on Thursday November 10, 17, 24 and one more on Thursday December 1. We'll contact the winner on social media, and they'll need to email us their address within 48 hours (or we'll have to give the prize to another entrant).

Motivational Quotes

Sometimes all you need is a little perspective on what cycling is all about, and what it means to you. Your bike is your freedom machine, your meditation and your best friend, so remind yourself why you love to ride, whatever the weather!

Let's start off Motivember nice and easy, with some inspiring quotes and pictures...

Motivation comes from within you as well. So leave those sticky notes of inspiration around your desk, and push yourself out of your front door for that drizzly ride. You won't regret either!
