It’s that time of the year again…

Thanksgiving rolls around, and suddenly you’ve got more people to shop for than ideas or time.

Let Roula help. Everybody knows a fitness freak or runner who can’t stop talking about their next race, or a cyclist who’d rather quit their job than drive to work, or a backpacker who’s ticking off the days till spring…

The point is, we’ve got a few ideas. See for yourself. . .
