Where can I find the best cycling deals?

Nearly every cycling retailer has a sale section on their website, so the list of where to shop can be long, however, if all of those deals above didn't supply you with a deal worth pulling the trigger on, here's a list of every retailer that we know of with a cycling sale of sorts.

Competitive Cyclist is one of the largest cycling retailers in the US. Their cycling sale is ongoing and there are deals aplenty, their cycling deals are always worth checking out. 

Rei is an outdoor retailer based in the USA. There's always a sale, you can currently get up to 64% off cycling products and even more in other categories. Owing to the store's popularity, the REI deals here are likely to be quick sellers. 

Jenson USA is another USA-based retailer and always has thousands of offers available. The cycling deals are great for road, gravel and mountain bikers alike. 

ProBikeKit often slashes prices on Castelli clothing, Scicon bike boxes, and an abundance of accessories including power meters and lights. With such a range of high-quality brands stocked, you can be sure the ProBikeKit sale is worth a look. 

Wiggle is one of the world's largest online cycling shops, supplying over 70 countries with cycling deals. They're usually one of the first to launch Black Friday, and Wiggle deals are always highly discounted. 

BackCountry, the US outdoor sports retailer, is one of the United States' go-to online retailers for bikes, components, clothing and accessories. It doesn't limit itself to cycling though, with fishing, skiing, and even yoga in the range of sports catered for.

Gear sells a whole host of outdoor gear, so expect some tidy cycling discounts. 

Gear Coop has a huge cycling section within its sale, including Giro shoes and Look pedals with handsome discounts. 

Seshday: It's not all cycling, but there's a good portion of tech that cyclists of both road and mountain bike disciplines will get excited about. 

Clever Training is the go-to place for all-things fitness training. With everything from turbo trainers to track pumps, the Clever Training sale has discounts on brands such as Garmin, Suunto, Topeak and more.

Moosejaw isn't a dedicated cycling retailer, but it sells a range of venerable brands. There's a heap of bikes on sale, including gravel, road, and electric commuting bikes. The Moosejaw deals are usually worth a look. 

Eastern Mountain Sports is another outdoor retailer that also sells cycling products. You can save up to 60% on cycling gear, although they don't sell bikes. 

Walmart might be a left-field inclusion in this list. We certainly wouldn't recommend a typical supermarket bike, but Walmart has a huge range of electronics, a lot of which are useful to us cyclists - such as GoPro cameras, iPads or laptops for Zwift, Garmin computers, or even some new clippers to keep your legs silky smooth.

Chain Reaction Cycles is owned by Wiggle, and therefore shares many of the same cycling deals as well as an international audience.

Evans cycles is one of the oldest cycling retailers in the world, it is a British company that services the world via its online store. 

Amazon isn't exactly the first retailer you think of when shopping for your bike but there's little the world's largest retailer doesn't sell, such as tablets for Zwift or Garmin computers.

Tredz is another British retailer with international delivery options and a range of great cycling deals.

Rutland Cycling is yet another British retailer that operates internationally.

Tweeks Cycles is more UK-focussed, but there are still some great deals worth checking out. 

Hargroves Cycles is a retailer based in the UK and regularly discounts road and gravel bikes.

Cyclestore, one of the UK's lesser-known retailers, often has Specialized products at the best available price. 

Leisure Lakes is another UK retailer. With 11 stores, it's a relatively well-known franchise, and will happily ship overseas.

Halfords is discounting all sorts of cycling products, so whether it's kids bikes, electronics, tools or more, you can't go far wrong. 

Kudos for getting this far, want to start again? Head back to the top.
