On any typical day, heading to the internet in search of some great bike deals would probably be a straight forward task. The sheer abundance of bicycle manufacturers, and the increasing rate at which they innovate in a bid to outdo their competition, means that there is generally an abundance of unsold bikes in the world. As a result, when supply outstrips demand, bike deals become almost hard to miss.
However, 2020 has been far from a typical year. But if there’s been one good thing to come as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s that millions of people have decided to take up cycling. Be that as a means of transport, a way of avoiding public transport, filling newfound additional free time, or simply for the health benefits it provides.
The coinciding closure of factories means that while demand has increased, supply has all but ceased, and stock is fast beginning to dwindle.
Such is the way of business, when demand outstrips supply, prices go up and those once-abundant bike deals are becoming ever more rare. However, here at Cyclingnews, we’re not just experts on bike racing, we know a thing or two about where to find great bike deals, so rather than having to wait until November for Black Friday bike deals, read on to peruse what we’ve found today.
Starting with road bikes, we’ve put together a few deals for each of our two most popular audiences, the USA and the UK.
Road bikes as a term no longer encompasses a singular form of bicycle, and nowadays you can get anything from wind-cheating aero road bikes made from carbon fibre to traditional-looking bikes made from steel.
If this is what you’re looking for, our guide to the best road bike deals should supply everything you need. We also have plenty of road based buying guides, chief of which is our overarching guide to the best road bikes.

We’re happy to provide you with the tools to help you find your own. While not all of the following retailers sell bikes, they all cross over into the world of cycling in some way or another, be that by selling clothing, components or tech.
Competitive Cyclist is one of the largest cycling retailers in the US. Their cycling sale is ongoing and there are deals aplenty.
BackCountry, the US outdoor sports retailer, is one of the United States’ go-to online retailers for bikes, components, clothing and accessories. It doesn’t limit itself to cycling though, with fishing, skiing, and even yoga in the range of sports catered for.
Jenson USA is another USA-based retailer and always has thousands of offers available.
Rei is an outdoor retailer based in the USA. There’s always a sale, and you can currently get up to 64% off cycling products and even more in other categories.
Gear Coop has a huge cycling section within its sale, including Giro shoes and Look pedals with handsome discounts.

Walmart might be a left-field inclusion in this list – even with the Walmart family buying Rapha. We certainly wouldn’t recommend a typical supermarket bike, but Walmart has a huge range of electronics, a lot of which are useful to us cyclists – such as GoPro cameras, iPads or laptops for Zwift, Garmin computers, or even some new clippers to keep your legs silky smooth.
Wiggle is one of the world’s largest online cycling shops, supplying over 70 countries with cycling deals.
Chain Reaction Cycles is owned by Wiggle, and therefore shares many of the same cycling deals as well as an international audience.

Rutland Cycling is yet another British retailer that operates internationally.
Tweeks Cycles is more UK-focussed, but there are still some great deals worth checking out.

Leisure Lakes is another UK retailer. With 11 stores, it’s a relatively well-known franchise, and will happily ship overseas.
Halfords is discounting all sorts of cycling products. We’d probably recommend against their bikes, unless you’re after something cheap and cheerful for the kids, but for your electronics and tools, you can’t go far wrong.
