Each year I send a note out to different athletes and ask them for their holiday wish list. This year I asked them to wish big, as if Santa has no limits. I also asked them to let me know why they wanted the particular item on their dream-big list. Here's what they had to say.
Sidi Hydro GTX Cycling Boots
These boots contain an insulated waterproof Gore-Tex upper that keeps your feet warm and dry during cold winter rides; without having to mess with those cumbersome booties. —Diana Hassel.
KUAT NV Hitch Mount Bike Rack
$375 for two-bike hitch
I love this rack because they have really thought out the design. It's even capable of holding a snow bike. Get outside this winter! The rack is very easy to use and you don't have to have brute strength, like some of the other racks on the market. —Barb Schultz.
Rudy Project Sunglasses
$300 and up
I want the capability of riding in varying light conditions and being able to see! —Linda Kennedy.
$200 to $400
Being able to record life's big adventures during the adventure would be really cool. —Pam Leamons.
