It probably won't have escaped your notice that it's a trifle damp out at the moment. Don't even think about using that as an excuse, though. Ahead of their Gatwick Trailbreak ride this weekend, Evans Cycles are offering a Gore Sprinter Gore-tex Jacket in yellow (worth £115) and a pair of Gore Sprinter Gore-tex Trousers (worth £90) as timely seasonal prizes. To be in with a shout, simply email us your catchy and/or amusing conclusion to the phrase, "I really, really deserve some Gore waterproofs because..." The one we like the best gets the goodies. We'll give you a week to get entries in. Thinking caps on...

The Trailbreak ride this weekend looks like being a must-see, with demo bikes available from Specialized, Trek and Klein, rides for all abilities, free goodie bags and all sorts of other stuff. You can get entry details for the ride on the web or call 0870 0600 0908.
