Day 5 (Friday, Dec. 6)

For the final day of our Holiday Gift Guide Giveaways, we’ve got four awesome prizes:

An EVOC Bike Travel Bag ($450, Evocusa.com). This soft-shell case will make sure your bike arrives without a scratch, as it has separate compartments for the frame and each wheel. All the padding you’ll need to secure the frame is in the case (no cardboard or newspaper required), and you don’t have to break down the bike to an extreme degree.

An SKS Tom 18 Multisport Tool ($33, Sks-germany.com). This versatile mini tool can solve many problems encountered on the roads yet is small enough to fit in a jersey pocket or saddlebag.

A pair of Assos Lounge Pantofel Slippers ($16, Assos.com). These terrycloth-like slippers from the Swiss cycling brand keep your toes warm while you lounge and wish you well on your ride. Available in one size.

A copy of Feed Zone Portables ($25, Feedzonecookbook.com). A follow-up to The Feed Zone Cookbook, Feed Zone Portables by chef Biju Thomas and Dr. Allen Lim introduces even more smart, tasty, real-food recipes to eat during rides as a break.

The Contest

To win today’s giveaway, we want to know what triathlon combo (other than swim-bike-run) would you be best at? (one per entry).

Two examples:

Downhill skiing –> Planking –> Hot chocolate drinking

Canoeing –> Jump roping –> Cartwheeling

Post it in the comments below, and we’ll pick the ones we like best.

Entries must be posted by Monday, Dec. 9 at Noon PST. The winners will be announced on this page by 5 p.m. PST the same day. It is the responsibility of the entrants to check back and see if they have won. The first winner to contact us will get the first choice of the three prizes, the second to contact us will have second choice, etc. so it is important to check back and and see if you’ve won.
