We all love a bargain, and when it comes to bargains Black Friday (and Cyber Monday) is full of the things. Bikes, clothing, gear – whatever you want, you’ll probably find it on offer in the next few days. So whether you are shopping for yourself, or for presents for someone else, we’ve gathered some of the best Black Friday bargains for women who love cycling. Happy shopping!
Black Friday itself takes place on the 25th November, but there are plenty of deals that will run over the whole weekend – and we’ll be updating this page with new bargains as they come in.
There are some great bargains, with premium products from brands like Castelli, Giro, Bell, Shock Absorber, Gore and more included.
Don’t forget to scroll right to the end where we’ll be popping in deals from other companies, smaller independent retailers and anything else that catches our eye! For example, Canyon has 10% off bikes in its outlet section, and clothing company Flare has 50% off their tech jerseys and shorts this weekend. Bargain!
What is Black Friday?
Black Friday started as an American shopping event that brings big savings to recommended retail prices for a limited time, and it’s made the leap across the pond to the UK. It started off as a way to drive more shoppers into stores, but now many major retailers have started to offer big savings online too, including various bike retailers in the UK.
It’s not to be confused with Cyber Monday though, which will take place on the 28th November and is definitely aimed at online shoppers only.
We’ll be focussing on women’s kit and products on this page, but if you’re interested in wheels, maintenance products, lights, components and so on, hop on over to our 2016 Black Friday hub page for even more bargains.
