    The eight guides in the City Cycling Europe series are each devoted to a different city: London, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Antwerp/Ghent, Berlin, Paris, Barcelona and Milan. Each compact volume features cycle-friendly neighbourhoods, itineraries, cycle maps and places to visit where cyclists are always welcome. Aimed primarily at those looking to take casual weekend breaks, there is also information for hardcore racing enthusiasts and special routes for those wishing to escape the traffic.

    Now we are giving you the chance to win a set of the City Cycling Europe series as well as a cool Rapha Backpack and Winter City Riding Socks by Rapha.

    Rapha apparel and accessories for city riding are designed for fast, all-day riding and to provide maximum comfort without compromising on style. Technical fabrics and inspired features have been combined with elegant tailoring for products that take you anywhere and everywhere.

    A runner-up will also receive a set of the City Cycling Europe series. Just answer the question below to be in with a chance to win. Competition closes on Sunday 1 December, midnight GMT. Good luck!
