WIN a bike and cycle accessories of your choice worth €350!

This competition is now closed

Congratulations to Stephen Devincenzi for the winning fantasy accessory…

My bike would be music-intelligent; creating it’s own theme tune to fit it’s surroundings. For example, if I were cycling through French countryside it would create some gentle piano and accordion harmonies; if I were in New Orleans it would serve up some deep-bass rhythm and blues; and if I was in the Reeperbahn it would play some dirty alternative underground industrial music. Oh, and if I was cycling past a group of girls it would slow down and play ‘Superstition’ by Stevie Wonder.

We love it!

A big shout out to our other favourite entries which gave us the giggles…

Alex says: Automatic breadcrumbs dispenser on the back wheel.

Lynne says: An ice cream van detector – it can be hot work pedalling!

Toryn says: I’d have a holographic projector so that white van men would think I was a hummer and give me some space (and respect) on the roads!

Caroline says: With a push of a button, a sign comes out stating a comment after an incident i.e. “Really?” “I’m here, too, ya know.” “Thanks for looking out.”

John says: a seat that hugs but doesn’t kiss

Kathryn says: Hamster wheels attached to each side. Stabiliser stylee….so my hamsters could accompany me on my travels. They’d love it!

Mel says: My bike would repeatedly say: “Keep pedaling and you will get skinny, stop pedaling and you will stay fat…..

Paramitha Sulistiaji Prabowo says: I want a mini dany de vito attached on my bike that keep talking and mocking people or whatever around me sarcasticly. That thing would keeps me laughing all the time while biking and give the ultimate joy ride every time I ride my bike.
