It’s cold out there; Don’t forget your gloves and hat

Rapha hat

Up for grabs this week is a cosy hat and glove combo; if you’re lucky enough to win, pop them under the tree for someone special or treat yourself and keep out those commuting chills.

The Belgian-style Rapha winter hat uses soft and stretchy Sportwool™ for insulation against the cold and the mesh lining provides excellent moisture wicking properties.

The Defeet Dura E-touch Gloves combine a close fit and warmth with the ability to operate any touchscreen device without getting cold hands.

To be in with a chance of winning the hat and gloves, simple leave us a comment at the bottom of this page. We’ll pick a name on Monday 17 December.

An insurance company like no other

Not only are we Britain’s most ethical insurance company, we campaign for sustainable transport. Sometimes that means protesting until a school gets the zebra crossing they’ve been refused, or running 60 roadshows this year to encourage people out of their cars, or fixing bicycles for free. Supporting this work is easy – you simply have to take out cycle insurance with us, cover that just happens to be excellent.

Unlike other insurers we never devalue your bike. And if you ride a carbon bike, rest assured we will never have a cracked frame repaired – we will always replace your bike with a new one. How many other insurers can say that? Find out more

..and it’s not just cycle insurance that we offer. We provide  home insurancecycle insurancetravel insurance and breakdown cover  – all while putting concern for the environment at the heart of all we do.

    I used to have a hat like that from the Army and Navy Store – loved it!
    And the gloves – reminds me of when Peter Sellers tried to catch the Pink Panther!

    Found the rescue insurance gives me real piece of mind whilst our cycling. Usually I have to drive to the start of a ride ( not always) which leaves my hubby with only the sports car to come and pick me up if I have an incident. It’s so worth it for peace of mind!
