Cycling Weekly’s bumper, 128-page Christmas special issue goes on sale from Thursday, December 15. And, even though we say so ourselves, it’s a real cracker of a Christmas edition.

We rank our riders of 2011, with a complete list of the cyclists who have impressed us during the past twelve months. Who will be number one?

The past year has seem some great new cycling products and innovations hit the bike shops. We take a look back at the most noteworthy kit from 2011 in our Tech Review.

Last month we asked you to vote for your favourite races, events and riders of the year in our annual Cycling Weekly Reader Poll. We also asked you to vote for your hero and villain of 2011, which threw up some interesting answers.

And we have a final catch-up with the subjects of our 2011 Fitness Project, where a set of cyclists set out their aims for the year in January. Did they reach their targets and have their best year in the saddle ever? We find out.

Plus there’s the usual cycling news round-up, star interviews, routes to ride, cyclo-sportive reviews, Dr Hutch and more.

Cycling Weekly 15 December 2011 special 128-page bumper issue on sale from Thursday at WHSmith, major supermarkets and all good newsagents priced £3.99.
