Clothing Competition Winners

After the guys from @hellojoe_ltd agreed to giveaway 4 t-shirts to London Cyclist readers we put together a twitter competition. Little did I know 150 people would enter!

I’m happy to announce that through assigning everyone a number between 1 and 150 in order of which you entered and then using the Excel random number calculator the numbers are:

133 M
6 M
89 F
4 F

I’ll shortly be messaging the winners. If they don’t respond then I will contact the next set of winners. Thanks to all who entered and I’ll keep competitions like this coming so you can win plenty more great things.

Special thanks to Hello Joe for offering this to London Cyclist readers.

This month in London

Last 24 hours when you can get the new Bike Doctor iPhone App for 60% off!

The new iPhone app we released that shows you how to look after your bike with 20 easy to follow step-by-step repairs is still 60% off if you get in on the action today!


To the 114 people who downloaded on the first day: Thank you so much! I was truly overwhelmed by that figure. If you have already downloaded the App then please do leave a review in the App Store.

Cycle Challenge Ends: 19542.61 miles covered!

Thanks to everyone who helped out with the London Cycle Challenge. We covered a total of 19542.61 miles between us. That is the equivalent of travelling 78% of the circumference of the world!

Unfortunately we came 3rd in our category (out of 3!) but none the less it was interesting to keep track of our mileage.

    I would have got more miles done on the Cycle Challenge, but had a bit of a stomach bug in the last week…

    Well, how chuffed am I to have been picked out by excel’s random number generator as a winner in your competition? *Very* chuffed, that’s how much. Thanks to you and Hello Joe for organising it.

    (I’ve emailed you as requested.)
