30% off Vulpine's Merino Alpine Short Sleeve Jersey
WAS £88.99 | NOW £61.99

First up in today's round-up of the best cycling deals the web has to offer is Vulpine's Merino Alpine Short Sleeve Jersey.

We had 2013's iteration of the Merino Alpine Jersey in for test, and our man Caven O'Hara absolutely loved it.

His main points focussed around Vulpine's incredible attention to detail - a facet that certainly hasn't changed over the last 3 years - as well as the jerseys style and comfort.

It's the Tasmanian merino wool that gives the jersey its comfort, as well as offering moisture wicking functionality, the stretchiness means the jersey sits well, fits well, and feels, well, great.

Merlin Cycles

35% off Merlin's ROC 105 Road Bike
WAS £999.95 | NOW £649.99

This is  Merlin's best ever aluminium road bike, according to Merlin.

For the sake of argument, we won't argue with their claim. After all, the manufacturing wizards, know their stuff when it comes to road cycling. We know, because when we've reviewed their road bikes in the past, they've performed very well - check out the Fuse 105 for example. An 8/10 is nothing to scoff at.

Seeing as we're not arguing with Merlin's claims, let's admire the value that's ono offer in the shape of this Shimano 105 sporting, hydroformed 70005 triple butted aluminium framed road bike.

This sub-9kg road bike will only set you back £649.99. For that money you'll be getting a sharp, responsive road bike that really responds when you give it a kick and climb out of the saddle.

Equally, you'll feel comfortable reaching for the drops and getting in the zone for a couple of hours.

40% off BTwin's 500 Women's Waterproof Jacket
WAS £29.99 | NOW £17.99

Finally, it may be beginning to feel like spring. Sure a lot of the bad, cold, and dreary weather is behind us, but you must remember that the majority of you live in a country where the weather is a genuinely interesting topic of conversation.

You're not safe from the rain. Ever. In the UK it's best to be prepared for a downpour all year round, so don't put off the need for a new waterproof just because it's March.

Seriously, you'd be foolish to think that the rains are gone. So, why not take advantage of a cracking deal on a good looking and incredibly functional rain jacket from BTwin that's coincidentally currently at an absolutely fantastic price.

We've BTwin 500 waterproof jackets in the past. Back in October 2014 our man Jez Ash gave BTwin's High Visibility 500 Waterproof Jacket a 9/10.

Seeing as you'll be investing in another member of the 500 series here, we can confidently predict that you'll be getting far more than your money's worth.
