What I'd be looking for

There are a plethora of picks within the black Friday deals... but these three things are what I'd be looking out for if I were you.

My number 1 pick for any ride rain or shine... it's a necessity, but it's expensive... get it in the sales!

Lightweight, packable, and fully waterproof, the Castelli Idro 3 Jacket is a standout option for those riders looking to keep weight to a minimum and protection to a maximum. It utilises GORE-TEX® fabrics, with SHAKEDRY in the main body and sleeves so water sheds fast, while the lower back uses GORE-TEX® Topo, a material that stretches easily over packed out pockets. Despite the protection, breathability remains high.

Water bottles £3-5

Maybe a weird one... but bottles are used throughout the year and having a small stash of new bottles which are half price does save a fair bit of money!

Trainers £65-110

If you can find the trainers that you're used to and like in the sale... bulk buy if you can afford it! You can find trainers up to 50% off or more... It's always good to have a spare pair of trainers ready to go once you've flatted your previous pair.

I use the Pegasus 39's and the Invincible run shoes as my go to trainers for training in. Invest now so you don't waste money later on. Both of these shoes have good sales at the moment.
