Great cycling deals on holidays, lights, bikes & more

The exclusive SiS flash sale ends tonight + cycling holidays on Mont Ventoux & Merlin bike bundles!

While the weather's struggling to make up its mind, perhaps its time to start making up your own - specifically on how you're going to spend your spring.

There's no guarantees that you'll get decent cycling weather during any season in the UK, let alone the notoriously unpredictable time that is March through to June, so why not get away? Why not head somewhere where the weather's more dependable, somewhere like the south of France.

An opportunity for you to do just that heads up today's DealCatcher, in the shape of a fantastic Mont Ventoux cycling holiday offer from the guys over at La Vie en Vélo.

Following that we've got a couple of great deals on aluminium Merlin bikes from - you guessed it - Merlin Cycles, who are also offering a free pair of shoes and pedals with the purchase of any of their in-house Merlin bikes.

Then there's a deal on a superb Lezyne light over at Cycle Surgery, with a reminder that the exclusive flash sale over at Science in Sport ends tonight to round things off.

Happy shopping.


La Vie en Velo

£100 off a long weekend on Mont Ventoux
WAS £695.00 | NOW £595.00

Right about now a long weekend in beautiful Provence on the flanks of the iconic Mont Ventoux sounds pretty perfect, right? Well, if you head over to La Vie en Vélo you can make that little pipe dream a reality.

You'll arrive, with your own bike in tow, in the south of France the south for brunch, if you fly, or late lunch if you head down on the Eurostar, on Friday. Four days of riding with full support in groups of 5 to 8 will follow.

Accommodation will be provided in a 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 La Vie en Velo that you came from here - just quote ''), which leaves the bill at £595 including transport, B&B accommodation, and bike transfer from Kent or SE London, as well as full ride support throughout.


Merlin Cycles

34% off Merlin FF1 105 Mix Road Bike
WAS £829.99 | NOW £549.95

36% off Merlin FF1 Tiagra Road Bike
WAS £699.95 | NOW £449.99

+ Free FLR F-35 cycling shoes & Shimano R540 SPD-SL pedals


There's quite the deal hiding away over at Merlin Cycles right now.

Buy any of their home grown Merlin road bikes and you'll get a pair of FLR shoes and Shimano pedals completely free of charge.

The bikes are Merlin's aluminium offerings. The slightly more expensive FF1 105 mix only differentiates itself from its Tiagra toting brother by the groupset it's running.

Meanwhile the shoe and pedal bundle would usually set you back £50, so that's a freebie and a half.

Cycle Surgery

21% off Lezyne Super Drive Front Light
WAS £99.99 | NOW £79.00

Bike lights come in all shapes and sizes. Obviously the bigger ones are more expensive, produce more light, and are more suited to rural environments, while the smaller ones are better suited to well lit urban areas.

That said, a big light can do the quiet stuff too. So, if you want to hedge your bets, and you can get a light that's generous in the lumen department for a reasonable price, that would usually a better bet.

This is one of those better bets. The Lezyne Super Drive 1200XL pumps out a lot of light, so no matter where you end up while it's dark, it'll have you covered.
