It's Thursday, we've all got one eye on our weekend rides and the final commute of the week tomorrow and the other on the pile of work that lies ahead of us.
You know that the weekend'll come a lot quicker and you'll be feeling a lot better about the mountain of work that stands in your way if you've got a delivery to look forward to tomorrow or Saturday, right?
The DealCatcher's got just the thing for you. A bumper deal round-up featuring five fantastic cycling deals from some of the country's biggest retailers lies waiting for you just a couple of scrolls down.
You've got 59% off an Altura Team jersey from Merlin Cycles, 59% off a huge High5 nutrition bundle over at ProBikeKit, and 50% off Boardman's Men's Bib Tights to look forward to. Plus a couple more deals that we'll leave as a surprise.
59% off Altura's Team Long Sleeve Jersey
WAS £55.00 | NOW £22.50
It's chilly still, and it's likely to remain chilly for some time to come. If you're running a little low on winter jerseys, or you want to bolster your collection in the pre-Spring sales, here's one of the better options we've seen.
The jersey's high wicking fabric will keep the sweat away from your skin, and the thermal brush fabrics on the inside layer will keep you warm, while the performance fit and huge range of colour choice will keep you looking and feeling pro, too.
20% off Funkier's J-730-1-LW Long Sleeve Jersey
WAS £40.00 | NOW £31.99
Funkier's rather un-funkily named J-730-1-LW Long Sleeve Jersey has a lot more going for it than it's clunkier-than-most name would suggest.
Jokes aside, we've reviewed a couple of Funkier's long sleeved jerseys before, and they've seen high praise from our esteemed reviewers.
for example, the Funkier's Ladies Long Sleeve jersey received a smashing 8/10 when it was reviewed by Steph Mann. She said that the jersey "stands out [is] very warm and decent value for money."
You can read the rest of her review below, it should give you some idea what to expect from a men's Funkier jersey.
50% off Boardman's Men's Bib Tights
WAS £49.99 | NOW £25.00
If we close our eyes and ignore the evidence for a moment; it's the end of February, winter should be on its way out, and spring should be threatening to arrive. On this evidence we should be looking to fill our wardrobes with spring gear.
If we now open our eyes we'll see two things. One, winter feels very much like it's here to stay at the moment, and two, the winter gear is going cheap because spring should be on the way.
Boardman, the brand, is going along with this, and has slashed the price of their bib tights by 50%. Grab 'em while you still can, and while your legs still need protecting from those horrible wintry winds.
We imagine that another reason for all of the Boardman clothing price reductions recently is the announcement we'll link you to below.
Boardman are expanding their clothing range, focusing on affordability. Exciting times for those of you who like their stuff already. In the mean time, get your milts on some extra affordable current Boardman gear.
59% off High5's Endurance Exclusive Bundle
WAS £146.99 | NOW £59.99
Our penultimate deal of the day is this Endurance Bundle from ProBikeKit.

Elliot joined team road.cc bright eyed, bushy tailed, and straight out of university.
Raised in front of cathode ray tube screens bearing the images of Miguel Indurain and Lance Armstrong, Elliot's always had cycling in his veins.
His balance was found on a Y-framed mountain bike around South London suburbs in the 90s, while his first taste of freedom came when he claimed his father's Giant hybrid as his own at age 16.
When Elliot's not writing for road.cc about two-wheeled sustainable transportation, he's focussing on business sustainability and the challenges facing our planet in the years to come.
