Even more Xmas gift ideas


In terms of every day essentials, I never get on my bike without slathering on some quality anti-chafing cream and you can’t get much better than Chafe Ease from Nature’s Kiss.  It is a super thick cream, with Tea Tree oil to protect against infection and it washes out easily.  You know you’re worth it!



Chafe Ease and Skins

I would love a stocking filled with Skins compression wear.  I know it is not cheap, but you get what you pay for in the world of technical sportswear.  The range spans the seasons and includes gear to wear on the bike, with a top of the range pad as well as compression benefits, and specialist tops and tights for recovery afterwards.  I was wearing the long tights during the autumn on the road and now I am using them riding my turbo in the garage, and then changing into recovery tights afterwards.  In fact, I may just add some high heels for the New Year’s Eve party!



eurocycler training camp 9

If money were no object, I escape the snow and spend the winter training in New Zealand!  If that seems a bit of a trek then booking onto a good quality training camp might be the perfect compromise.  I have had the pleasure of joining Fast Track Coaching cycling gurus, Dave Le Grys and Lee Povey in Mallorca for a week of quality training and advice for the past two years.  If money were not a consideration, I would book myself onto their camp for 2011 for the full two weeks, with a couple of days to recover by the pool before returning home.  In 2011, the dates are April 4th to 18th and there are always lots of women and a wonderful bunch of friendly guys too.
