In a change of pace the road.cc DealCatcher's shifted his sights from cycling gear to cycling experiences.
So, rather than contesting with the British weather, preparing for weeks or months of rain, or coveting bike bits, we're giving you license to dream.
Go ahead, dream of a weekend away peddaling up the famous slopes of Mont Ventoux, dream of soaking up the atmosphere of the greatest race on earth, dream of stunning rides in picturesque places all over Europe.
Or, take advantage of one of these deals and actually do it - remember to quote road.cc when you book.
Make those cycling dreams a reality.
The cold winds are sweeping in, winter is on its way - finally - so give yourself a little reprieve and let your mind drift to sunny places and the next big challenge.
Balancing holiday time with riding time is often an issue, but when you combine the two there's really no losing, right?
How about a long weekend in beautiful Provence on the flanks of the iconic Mont Ventoux? La Vie en Vélo can make that dream a reality, and will even take your own bike down to the sunny south for you while you speed south by rail or air.
Arrive in the south for brunch (by air) or late lunch (by Eurostar direct) on Friday, for 4 days of riding with full support in groups of 5 to 8. You'll be staying in a lovely, well-reviewed, cyclist-friendly hotel with a pool just 18km from the summit of the Géant de Provence.
You'll be the recipient of a £100 discount ( once you've told them that you came from here - just quote 'road.cc'), which leaves the bill at £595 including transport, B&B accommodation, and bike transfer from Kent or SE London and full support throughout.
We discovered last year that the world’s greatest cycling event won't be coming back to British shores any time soon.
While that's a shame, it does mean that we'll get to take in the Grand Départ in slightly sunnier climes - namely Mont St Michel in 2016.
With this package deal you'll take in the Départ from Mont St Michel to the start of stage 5 in Limoges. You'll be riding carefully selected routes in the region every day, as well as watching the race fizz by at every opportunity.
You'll be traveling in La Vie en Velo's 9-seater and bike trailer from Kent to Normandy, where you'll stay for 3 nights allowing you to see the Tour and also visit the D-Day landing beaches. Then you'll follow Le Tour south to Limoges on stage 5, where accommodation will be provided in your own relaxing place in the beautiful Dordogne for the last 3 nights.
Again, you'll be able to claim your £100 discount by quoting road.cc when you book. The final price of £695 includes B&B accommodation in Normandy and full board in the Dordogne, plus all transfers of riders, luggage and bikes to and from Kent or SE London, and full support throughout.
Finally, if the deals above seem a bit too much to stomach, or you're looking to fill out your cycling calendar, here's the perfect opportunity to find something that suits your cycling dreams perfectly.
