A Castelli Christmas

Some of you know how much I love Castelli cycling apparel. The most important person that knows this is my husband.

I love Castelli because they make good quality items and we can usually find deals on them. Another reason I love Castelli is that not everyone and his/her brother wears it. Pearl Izumi is ubiquitous in the cycling world, and although I like their products and own some, I much prefer Castelli because it’s much less common.

Castelli also has some of the best designed clothing I’ve ever seen.

Here are some of the items I received this year for Christmas:

castelli-black castelli-purple1

superleggera-black superleggera-white-red

track-jacket castelli-socks

I’ve also been pining for a pair of Sidi shoes. Who doesn’t?? Santa didn’t disappoint.


My sister asked me on Christmas Eve if I’d be having a biking Christmas, wondering if I’d be receiving biking items this year. I told her that for the last few years, since I’ve been into cycling, that has been the case. My husband was within earshot and I want to assure him, and her, that even if it wasn’t a “biking Christmas” I wouldn’t be disappointed. I never am.

Everyone should have a special Santa like mine! I only wish I could buy for him like he buys for me! I always fall a bit short, way short, of that benchmark.

I didn’t mention everything here. I received more cycling and some non-cycling items that were greatly appreciated as well.

There was also more to my Christmas than just presents, which I will explain in my next post. In the mean time, let me know what special gift, biking related or not, did you receive!

  1. that cycling shoe rocks. my favorite colors!!! Are they comfy? I’ve had my sidis for 8 years now. I feel an upgrade coming on….

  2. Ditto to Karen’s comment. Love your SIDI shoes! I see, though, that what you have pictured is are Men’s SIDI Genius 6.6. Just curious … do you wear men’s spinning shoes or do you have the women’s version of what is pictured?

    • They are indeed men’s shoes and that’s what I have and wear. I do have a pair of Sidi Genius 6.6 women’s shoes that are all white. I really don’t notice much of a difference between the two, to be perfectly honest.

  3. Great! Thanks for the tip 🙂
