If the traffic jam outside my local shopping centre, the crazed expressions on most cashiers faces and the heart-string-wrenching adverts on TV are anything to go by, I’d say Christmas is getting closer.
In ten days time, the internet will break as millions of shoppers try to make the most of ‘Black Friday’ deals on November 27 – all of them desperate to grab a bargain on that one exciting product that will make a loved one go “you shouldn’t have!” when clearly they totally should (and did).
To help you get ready for your own Christmas shopping, or help the present buyer in your life pick out some corkers, we’ve rounded up some of the items we reckon road cycling women will absolutely adore.
Muc-Off Athlete Performance Gear
We’re in the middle of a long-term test with this range, so our full findings will appear on the site soon, but thus far we’re pretty impressed and had to include a nod to the selection as our first five top picks.
Our current favourite is the ‘Recovery Balm’. This contains tons of goodies all designed to aid muscle recovery. You can lather it on after a bath or shower before bed, and there’s a gentle lavender scent which we love.
The range of products also includes brand new chamois cream (£20) which moisturises and kills germs with a unique formula containing Aloe Vera, Witch Hazel, Shea Butter and Sunflower Oil. There’s also warm-up cream (£15), plus ‘Explosive Power’ (£24) and ‘Explosive Endurance’ (£24) both designed to improve performance.
