Gravel bikes are wonderful things, because they sit somewhere in the middle of road cycling and mountain biking, offering efficient pedalling alongside the ability to go off-road. It's no surprise that the travel restrictions during the COVID-19 pandemic has prompted lots more people to explore their own backyard, meaning that gravel cycling has boomed even more than before. It's also no surprise that the increase in demand has left many retailers with low stock levels.

This means that gravel bike deals are a little harder to come by as of late, but don't fear, there are still plenty of bargains to be found. To save you the hassle of searching for them yourself, the team at Cyclingnews have scoured the net for some of the best deals we could find.

If you're not sure how to choose, our guide to the best gravel bikes has all the info you need, along with a roundup of our favourite gravel bikes. If you're unable to find a deal here, then our guide to the best budget gravel bikes may well get the ball rolling instead. 

And of course, being the deal hunter you are, don't pass up the opportunity to check out our cycling deals roundup, where you'll find discounts on all things two-wheeled. 

And finally, before we get into the deals, if you're wondering what size bike you need, then we've got you covered with our full explainer on how to make sense of manufacturers' size and geometry charts, aptly named, what size bike do I need?
