With the Tour de France fast approaching, the deals have been rolling in!

There have also been loads of bike launches so we'll be keeping a close eye on last year's models.

First, let's check out some of the mega sales!

You can view the rest of the sale here!

 

Fizik R1 Infinito Road Shoe 2018

Fikiz R1 Infinito Road Shoes
£227.49
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

These shoes are worn by a lot of pro riders and with good reason.

The soles are the highest stiffness carbon fibre that Fizik use and when combined with the Boa dials, these give a secure base for maximal power transfer.

The look of these shoes is also really nice. They are very simple and the uppers clean easily, keeping them fresh for longer.

 

Fizik R1 Infinito Knit Road Shoe 2018

Fizik R1 Infinito Knit Road Shoes
£244.99
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

If you ride in hot temperatures and need extra ventilation, the R1 Knit is perfect.

You get the same sole and fit as the above R1 Infinito but the upper is made from a strong knit fabric.

That knit fabric won't stretch, so you still get great power transfer.

 

Sportful BodyFit Team Jersey

Sportful BodyFit Team Jersey
£56.25
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

This lightweight summer jersey is perfect for road riding in the warmer weather.

The excellent wicking properties make this ideal for wearing when it gets hot as the fabric will take sweat away from the skin, leaving you comfortable.

We also love the styling which is simple with great colours.

 

Sportful Super Total Comfort Bibshort

Sportful Super Total Comfort Bibshorts
£112.50
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

Now isn't that a name the just sounds comfy!

At the heart of these bibshorts is a really excellent chamois. The dense pad is up to 18mm thick in certain spots. That eliminates road buzz which we are finding more of on UK roads.

The bib straps are really supportive and split for a better fit.

43% off Scicon AeroTech Evo X Bike Box

Scicon AeroTech Evolution X TSA Bike Box
£399.99
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

That's a huge saving of £300 on this excellent hardshell bike box!

The AeroTech Evo 3.0 is a seriously easy box to pack up with dedicated wheel storage and minimal disassembly required.

The hard shell of the box is ideal if you're flying an expensive bike regularly on cheap airlines.

The Thermoplastic ABS shell prevents a carbon frame from being damaged with the internal straps and padding also helping to keep everything in place.

Merlin Bike Bag - Only £79.99

The hard case doesn't amount to too much weight though and at 12kg, this should easily clear most baggage allowances, allowing you to pack some cycling kit in the box too.

You can also get a matching trolley bag for the ultimate travel setup. This will take care of the rest of your kit and clothing. It's possibly the most organised bag we've ever seen!

Internally, there are specific compartments for your helmet, shoes and even sunnies.

The whole thing rolls on 2 large wheels for easy transportation.

The price of 105 has come down and we'll be keeping an eye out for deals on the new disc brake groupset!

 

Tour de France Deals - Wiggle Mega Sale

Every Thursday, Wiggle are releasing new feature deals.

This week, it's Italian brands Castelli and Sidi, two of the best cycling kit companies ever.

As per usual, we've picked out our favourite pieces, but to see the full sale, click here!

 

Castelli Volvo Bibshorts

Castelli Volvo Bibshorts
£67.50
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

These bibs are designed to be the club rider's favourite pair. 

They fit a wide range of body shapes and are supportive, giving great comfort over long days.

The Kiss Air seatpad is a brilliant option for longer days and the leg grippers are way comfier than a silicone band.

 

Castelli Prologo V Jersey

Castelli Prologo V Jersey
£60.00
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

Again, this isn't Castelli's race-fit kit. The Prologo V jersey is perfect for all-day comfort.

It fits close to the skin without restricting movement, making it perfect for normal bodies!

We love the simple design and the range of colours.

 

Sidi Shot Shoes

Sidi Shot Road Shoes
£229.99
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

Sidi's Shot shoes are their top of the range racing shoes and therefore will be seen on the feet of their sponsored rider throughout the Tour.

Chris Froome will now definitely be on the start line, but will he be wearing special yellow versions in Paris?

The shoes are beautifully made with a super-stiff carbon sole for the ultimate amount of power transfer.

 

Sidi Wire Carbon Vernice Shoes

Sidi Wire Carbon Vernice Road Shoes
£209.00
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

The Wire used to be Sidi's top-end shoes, hence the massive price cut.

If you don't mind having last year's shoes, then these are a brilliant pair for racing and fast riding.

The Sidi Techno 3 dials are located on the external side of the shoe, making them easy to adjust while riding. The sole is again a super-stiff carbon piece.

 

Castelli Free Aero Race Bibshorts

Castelli Free Aero Race Bibshorts
£105.00
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

These Free Aero bibs are part of Castelli's race kit. 

The fabric is on the legs is dimpled for extra aero savings but the best feature for us is the Giro Air leg gripper.

This spreads the pressure of the gripper over a large area, causing less discomfort, especially on longer days.

 

Castelli Advantage T-Shirt

Castelli Advantage T-Shirt
£12.50
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

An off the bike T-Shirt that only other cyclists will identify as a cycling T-Shirt.

That allows us to pick each other out in public, and then chat bikes. Smart.

Tour de France Deals - Rotor Components Sale

Power meters, chainrings and groupsets. It's all here!

Merlin Cycles are having a rather large sale on one of our favourite component brands.

The full sale includes 60 components, so we've picked out our favourites below.

To see the rest of the sale, click here.

Rotor Uno Hydraulic Disc Groupset

Rotor Uno Hydraulic Groupset
£1499.00
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

This hydraulic disc groupset is providing the first real challenge to Shimano and Campagnolo in years.

Rotor have worked with Magura on the hydraulics meaning that you're getting seriously good braking.

Unlike the Shimano road groupsets, you get the option of flat-mount or post-mount callipers.

The lack of maintenance associated with hydraulics is certainly appealing meaning that the shifting and breaking won't need much upkeep.

 

Tour de France Deals - Wiggle Mega Sale

 

Rotor 2inpower Road Chainset

Rotor 2InPower Power Meter
£899.00
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

Buying a power meter is a big investment. Many do it for training, but more people are buying them as accessories.

Buying one that works in poor conditions is especially important for us in the UK! This Rotor 2InPower is perfect for our changeable conditions.

You get independent left/right readings, easy integration with 5 blot chainrings and 250hours of battery life.

 

ChainReaction Spend & Save - Vitus Vitesse Ultegra 2018

 

Rotor NOQ-Chainring 110BCD Aero

Rotor NOQ Chainring 110BCD Aero
£59.00
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

Those chainrings can be these awesome aero chainrings!

Ok, so the aero benefits might not be massive, but the solid profile gives the chainring more stiffness, improving shifting.

This is the No-Q version, so you're getting a classic round ring.

27% off Merlin Cordite SL Ultegra R8000

At only £1099.99, this re-badged Ridley is a bargain carbon road bike.

The bike gets an Ultegra R8000 groupset, making this an amazing amount of bike for the money.

Merlin bikes have been going from strength to strength. They offer incredible value on new old stock Ridley frames.

Massive savings on Rotor

The fact that the framesets come from the Belgian manufacturer means that you're getting a high-quality frame at the fraction of the cost.

The Mega Week Roundup - Superbikes, TdF Deals & More

The Cordite SL is a Ridley Helium ISP frameset. That means that the seatpost is part of the frame, making the bike super light!

Around the rest of the bike, the finishing kit, brakes and wheelset are all from Forza, Ridley's in-house components brand.

 

Bikecation Holiday Deals - UK Cycling Breaks

If you've been loving the splendid weather we've been having, maybe it's time to take the bike and experience some of this country's finest riding spots!

The Yorkshire Dales and the New Forest are well known as fabulous places to ride a bike and Bikecation know some excellent hotels in the local area.

 

Yorkshire Dales 

Yorkshire Dales.jpg

Home to our favourite part of a Sunday roast, flat caps and beautiful rolling hills.

Yorkshire boasts many reasons to visit, but the primary one for us is the riding.

Using the charming market town of Skipton as a base, you can ride climbs like Fleet Moss, Grinton Moor and the Col de Buttertubs, made famous when the Tour de France came to town.

Riding around here can be challenging whatever the weather, but when the sun shines, there are few more beautiful places to ride a bike.

New Forest

New Forest.jpg

When someone mentions the New Forest, our minds are instantly thinking of quiet roads and endless MTB trails.

It's certainly a place for every type of cycling and many abilities as well.

The roads will take you through postcard villages and over rolling hills, though the terrain isn't too challenging. 

Heading off-road, you can discover well-maintained trails for beginners through to advanced riders.
