We’re fresh into 2017 with a list of resolutions which will make this year the one for achieving cycling goals. But those goals will be much more easily achieved with the right kit for the job. So what better time to stock up on bikes, shoes, helmets and gear than the sales season.
Trawling through the websites and sports shops can often feel like a jumble sale, jumbling up your head. Percentages, 2-for-1 deals and clearance items may seem like a great deal, but are they really? Is it what you need, or are you compromising for the deal? It’s easy to get lured in by the bright red sale labels, but more often than not, you can come away with a shopping cart full of unnecessary bits and bobs.
The phrase “once it’s gone, it’s gone” typically applies to sale items. Stores are trying to clear their warehouses ready for the new waves of goodies to hit the shelves.
Whether you’re shopping online and bookmark the page, or if you see it in the store and think of returning another day, be careful because that super ideal pair of bibtights may be gone when you return!
