It’s not just the weekend, it’s a Bank Holiday weekend! Three whole days to get out on your bike. That’s time for a three-day bothy biking adventure, or how about a long-distance bike ride? It’s also the time when shops traditionally have sales blowouts, and the cycling world is no different.
One British retailer that has some rather spiffing bike bargains is Tweeks Cycles, and this week we’ve combed its site to bring you the very best deals on offer. From groupsets to helmets and from jackets to pedals, both you and your bike can get kitted out from top to toe.
Of course, we’d also suggest you have a look out for other offers as the chances are that rival shops will be offering some great bargains and discounts too. Happy shopping!

“Easy-to-use removable chin guard boosts protection over a regular trail lid – and it doesn’t look too quirky!” That’s the BikeRadar verdict on the Bell Super 2R, a helmet that’s designed for enduro riders with a removable chin guard that transforms it from a trail helmet with a low back and extensive coverage to a light full-face helmet. This model also includes MIPS, which stands for Multi-directional Impact Protection System, and adds another layer of protection for your bonce. Let’s face it, more protection can only be a good thing.
