Nic wins DHB – Wiggle clothing prize!

Over the Christmas period DHB clothing ran the 12 Days of Christmas competition on Strava. Each day having a different entry criteria and associated prize. Day six asked cyclists to share a bit about their cycling, their social media feeds and what their big cycling plan for the year was. 

Nic said “I just wrote a pretty brief email, not really expecting to be in with a chance of winning, though I had a big ride planned, way bigger than anything I’ve done before”

On the sixth day of Christmas we asked you to email us with your big challenge of 2022 for a chance to be supported by us….we’ve found a winner that embodies our #dontholdback mantra. Alongside his Cardiff Cycle Workshop colleagues and his VeloAdventures Cardiff riding group, he has supported so many people into the sport. So we thought it was high time he got a little support of his own, especially with a 1600km audax on the agenda for 2022.

I was in stunned, to be selected as the winner of a £1000 worth of clothing is amazing, I normally wear DHB cycling clothing, as the fit is excellent and the the kit lasts really well.

So far I’ve had some deep winter bib tights which are definitely a step up in terms of warmth, especially when the the temperatures drop well below zero, which is quiet normal when heading at 6am, and some lovely merino wool jersey’s.

We’ll be catching up with Nic again before he sets off on the epic 1600km (1000 mile) self-supported Bristol-Glasgow-Bristol mixed surface audax adventure.

I’d just like to say a massive ‘Thank You’ to the boys and girls at Cardiff Cycle workshop. They’ve done absolute wonders for my bike over the years! It’s was an old heavy Peugeot which I bought from new in about 1990. Although I used it regularly, it was getting too heavy for me, so the team changed the wheels for ones that were much lighter; put some super duper tyres on them, and on top of that, replaced the old hard saddle for a brand new very comfortable one. I make sure that I get my bike serviced regularly with them too. Such a friendly bunch too-always time for a chat. There is nothing they don’t know about bikes. Highly recommended!

“Came away a lot more confident with attempting to build a wheel. The course was run in a relaxed manner and no question was too much for Jon to answer. Look forward to my next course.”
