A Boardman hybrid bike, a pair of women's bib shorts, and a Merlin thermal jacket feature from the DealCatcher ...

There'll be quite a few of you who are feeling pretty loved-up today, we imagine. We also appreciate that there'll be some of you who are feeling somewhat more pensive about your love life.

Either way, we imagine that the most important relationship in your life will have taken something of a back seat this weekend. That's right, your bike needs love to.

So, if you're looking for a new mechanical love look no further than the 30% discount on the Boardman Hybrid Sport that's live right now over at Halfords.

Alternatively, spice up your saddle time with a new pair dhb shorts, or a thermal cycling jacket from Merlin.

The years have been kind to the range, as well. The Sport edition is perfect for those inner-city commutes if you prefer a more relaxed, upright, riding position.

The build features a lightweight triple butted aluminium frame, an 18 speed Shimano Altus groupset, Avid Single Digit 3 caliper brakes, and Boardman 700c tyres



61% off dhb Women's Professional ASV Bib Shorts
WAS £65.00 | NOW £25.35


Grab 'em while you can! The dhb Women's Professional ASV shorts are plummeting in price, and selling out fast.

Wiggle are lowering the price of these shorts by 1% every night, so you can either play a game of chicken on the price front, or grab 'em while they're still available!

The shorts themselves are dhb's professional range, which mean that they're the same stuff they supply their in-house Wiggle Honda professional cycling team with.

We covered the launch of the dhb ASV professional range before there was any women's kit in the range, check it out below:

Merlin Cycles

30% off Merlin Wear Sport Thermal Cycling Jacket
WAS £70.00 | NOW £49.00


Check out Merlin's stunning thermal cycling jacket.

As is standard with thermal cycling jackets - if they're worth even talking about in the insulation stakes - it features a polyurethane membrane to keep out the wind, tight fitting especially shaped cuffs to keep breezes out, and a fleece lined inner layer for comfort and added warmth.

You've also got some great reflective sections, ventilation points, pockets galore, and an elasticated waist for breeze protection.

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.
