Top of my wishlist: More people to take up cycling… simple
Mike Gough

Special heated gloves and socks to keep me cycling through the Scottish winter.
Stephen Cormie

Ben Knights

My wish would be that Kent County Council highways department eradicates all shards of flint from roads in Kent.
Peter Lazarus


One of those, and this one.. and maybe that one too.

Top of my list is a single, garage-space-saving bike to replace the current road bike, mountain bike, cyclo-cross bike, gravel bike, winter bike, commuter bike and single speed. Hold on, why would I want to do that?
Dave Garth

£1130 to buy a B’Twin Ultra 720 AF bike and matching blue and pink shoes!
Harry Hunt

Lewis Hutchinson

Some kind of device that means I do not feel guilty when stuffing my face full of delicious Christmas food instead of going out riding. Is it too early to be looking forward to Christmas dinner yet?
Anne Nicholls

>>> 100 Best Road Riders of 2016

To return home to work back in the UK as cycling in the Middle East is about as pointless and enjoyable as a broken pencil being stabbed in your leg.
Craig Boyd

A turbo trainer (and pop-up gazebo!) so on those really wet nights after work I can still get the hours in.
Justin Al-Soufi

A new knee so that I can ride my bike again.
Berry Kettle


Power and speed, or speed and power. I’m not fussy.
Dave Pargeter

A year off work.
Jude Williamson

A 50-mile length of pristine tarmac that I can install on my favourite cycling route, which is only currently spoilt by the potholes, crumbling edges and cracks. Oh, and cars would not be allowed on it, obviously. It’s mine, I can do what I want with it.
Keith Harvey

>>> Cycling fans suggest new rules to make bike racing more exciting

Go back 30 years so that I can take up cycling again, but as a youngster.
Patrick Walker

My stolen Wilier back.
Mark Herring

Robert Förstemann

I’ll have a pair of those, please Santa. Photo: Andy Jones

A pair of legs that never weaken on the hills, that deliver the power in a sprint, that can still feel fresh after 100 miles, that shave themselves and look mighty fine in a pair of shorts.
Mike Simms

One of those new carbon-fibre aero road bikes with all the trimmings, please Santa. Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 and Zipp wheels would be nice. First, though, I am going to have to work very, very hard to get myself off the naughty list.
Ethan Cope

A bit of respect from motorists.
Dermot Lane

Gatorskins and some dosh for cafe!
Bradley Ashworth
