Verenti Defense WR2.1 Sora — £409.02

Huzzah! A commuting bikes that actually comes with mudguards so you don't arrive at the office with a wet arse. Wiggle's knocking 32% off the £600 list price of the Defense WR2.1, and it'll serve just as nicely for weekend excursions into the lanes as for the daily blat to work.


Cinelli Bootleg Hoy Hoy Rats — £498.97

Round-town transport with verve. The Hoy Hoy Rats' toned-down look is inspired by Italian commuter bikes camouflaged with black tape to hide high-quality frames. Marked down from £854.99 it's a great deal on a perfect urban speedster.


GripGrab Orca Overshoes — £11.99

Winter is coming. Yes, we know it's not even high summer yet, but if you like a) a bargain and b) planning ahead these overshoes, reduced from £39.99, should be right up your (cold and rainy) street.

You better move quickly to grab this deal it ends on Monday June 1. The Cube Agree GTC has a lightweight carbon fibre frame hung with a blend of Shimano Ultegra 11-speed and 105 components, rolling on Mavic Aksium wheels.

JE James only has a couple of sizes left, but they're not silly, so if a 56cm or 58cm frame fits you, take a look.


Dawes Etape Limited Edition Road Bike — £227.99

Decent road bikes for under £300 are rare, but with a price drop from £379.99, the Dawes Etape definitely fits the bill. The model was created to celebrate the 2014 Grand depart of the Tour de France and you get an aluminium alloy frame, Shimano 7-speed gears and a compact chainset.

The Dawes Etape Limited Edition would be a great first proper road bike for a young rider.

Acknowledged by the Telegraph as a leading cycling journalist, John Stevenson has been writing about bikes and cycling for over 30 years since discovering that people were mug enough to pay him for it rather than expecting him to do an honest day's work.

He was heavily involved in the mountain bike boom of the late 1980s as a racer, team manager and race promoter, and that led to writing for Mountain Biking UK magazine shortly after its inception. He got the gig by phoning up the editor and telling him the magazine was rubbish and he could do better. Rather than telling him to get lost, MBUK editor Tym Manley called John’s bluff and the rest is history.

Since then he has worked on MTB Pro magazine and was editor of Maximum Mountain Bike and Australian Mountain Bike magazines, before switching to the web in 2000 to work for Along with editor Tony Farelly, John was on the launch team for and subsequently became editor in chief of Future Publishing’s group of cycling magazines and websites, including Cycling Plus, MBUK, What Mountain Bike and Procycling.

John has also written for Cyclist magazine, edited the BikeMagic website and was founding editor of before handing over to someone far more representative of the site's main audience.

He joined in 2013 and these days he lives in Cambridge where the lack of hills is more than made up for by the headwinds.
