Christmas Shopping.

   Words by Mark

   on 25/11/2014 15:49:36


Oranges, lumps of coal, and love. Three things you can’t get away with giving at Christmas anymore. You may get away with a Terry’s Chocolate Orange (other brands of chocolate designed to resemble spherical fruit are available), you could argue that coal is made from the same stuff as diamonds, but love?

Good luck with that one.

Come Christmas morning it doesn’t matter how beloved you are by your nearest and dearest, if you haven’t shelled out the bucks for their Christmas treat it’ll be an icy atmosphere over the turkey.

This Christmas I am determined not to be carrying out my Christmas shopping on a garage forecourt on Christmas Eve, avoiding the gaze of the cashier as I convince myself that it’s going to be OK. I mean, who doesn’t want fifteen Ginster’s pasties on the big day?



“I know, I know. There’s no need to thank me”


Dave the neighbour.

Frequent riding partner and eternal burden on my supply of tubes. If there are thorns, broken glass, or bits of flint on the road Dave will attract them like a nails to a magnet. His Strava times will forever be hampered by standing on the side of road holding a wheel trying to find the source of deflation with the concentration of a safe cracker. This year Dave will get;


rutland-cycling-specialized-mini-wedgie-bag Specialized-Pro-EMT-Lever-Rutland-cycling glueless_patch_kit_x6

Specialized Mini Wedgie Bag £15.00

Specialized EMT Pro Tyre Lever £8.00 

Specialized Flatboy Patch Kits £3.00 

And maybe I’ll get...

…my bloody step ladders back. It’s been six months, Dave.

My little brother

Mike has been the grateful recipient of Chinese burns, wedgies, and headlocks for most of his life. When we were younger the house forever rang with cries of “I’m getting Mum” as I ran in giggling fear of the slipper. He’s not much of a cyclist but if there’s an extreme sport he’ll give it a go. He’ll make fine use of…


GoPro Hero Action Camera £98.99 

We’ve grown out of giving each other dead arms at the dinner table but I will always get a laugh out of watching him fall off of skate boards, snow boards, cliffs etc.

And maybe I’ll get...

…him to keep quiet about who really set fire to the Mr Talbot’s shed when I was 12. He wouldn’t dare.


You know those people that can feel a draught even in the searing Caribbean heat. That is my Mum. Forever sitting on the sofa shivering and asking ‘can anyone else feel that’ before getting up and cranking the thermostat up so that the temperature in the room is comparable with the surface of the sun.


Calm down. Not my actual mum.

Icebreaker Oasis Long Sleeve Base Layer £65.00 

Bearing in mind that one of these Merino wool base layers and a jacket is all I’ve ever really needed to keep me warm on a winter’s ride, she should be adequately insulated against influxes of Siberian weather fronts that only exist in her mind and leave the rest of us to not get 3rd degree burns from sitting to close to a radiator.

And maybe I’ll get…

…a years supply of her shepherds pie in convenient portion size containers for the freezer.


Dad will be sixty this year and as a joint Crimbo and 60th we’re clubbing together and getting him a new bike. The old Raleigh, which he insists there is nothing wrong with, has got to go. He’s right, there is nothing wrong with the bike, it’s him. Traditional father son comedy sparring has long stopped going his way and whilst he doesn’t necessarily need to take it easier he does need to realise he is no longer a spring chicken and not bendy enough for his out-and-out racer or suplexing his oldest.


Giant Defy Composite 3 Carbon Road Bike £749.99 

The Defy is a belting bike and is a steal at this price. Lightweight so he can chill out on the hills and the carbon will soak up the bumps. But most of all it’s comfortable over distances.

And maybe I’ll get…

…finally let off dropping out of uni to form an experimental synth rock band. We were going to be bigger than Gary Numan.

The other half.

A trip to Machu Picchu is on the cards next year for my better half. Partly to experience other cultures and partly to complete her collection of selfies in front of famous landmarks. She thinks she’ll complete the Inca trail in a pair of Adidas Sambas (other iconic trainers designed for playing indoor football are available) but it’s unlikely.


Meindl  Bhutan Lady MFS Walking Boots £159.00 

A pair of Meindl Bhutans are destined to fill her stocking, Memory foam comfort system, Vibram sole, a guaranteed GORE TEX liner, and a durable leather upper means that she won’t slip of a rocky path, slip on a rope bridge, come back with trench foot or break an ankle.

And maybe I’ll get…

…talk of marriage put on hold for just one more year. Just one.
