The Winter Cycling Cap Giveaway...

We'd like to thank you our readers for following us throughout this season and we are happy to offer a free cycling cap giveaway featuring the new; The Flemish 100% wool handmade winter cycling cap from Galstudio.

It's simple all you have to do is become a follower of bikesbooksbeers.ca and leave a comment (not too vicious please) on this post. You have up to 11:59 PST Friday December 9th, the contest will close and then we will draw the names using random.org to come up with one lucky winner. The winner will be announced this Saturday Dec. 10th.

I have already tested the Flemish cap (here) and I'm sure you will be proud to have this essential cycling cap as part of your winter kit.

I admit I love the eighties for cycling and after reading Team 7-Eleven by Geoff Drake, I watched the 1987 Tour de France (here) for inspiration.

As an extra Christmas cheer I go to the trusty fridge for a special dark beer (one of my all time favorites!) to enjoy as we talk about our highlights of this past season and what's to come next season.

Merry Christmas and Good Luck to all!
