LIVE DEALS BLOG UPDATE!
Josh has worked himself into a deals induced torpor. Fortunately for you all I have a fridge full of both stimulants and depressants to maintain the perfect energy balance to bring you DEALS DEALS DEALS!
This is Will Jones, Cyclingnews‘ latest capitalism correspondent signing on.
So let’s work through those quickly, starting from the bottom:
Don’t believe me? Just check out the state of my inbox… these emails all arrived in the last hour
It’s safe to say the Black Friday deals are coming thick and fast now…
For those of you just waking up in the USA, here are some key finds so far:
and some specific deals as we’ll outline now…
But you’re here for deals, and as ever, in our bid to share the best Black Friday bike dealswe’re happy to oblige:
Off the back of the testing, two of our testers shared their key learnings in the following posts:
Each of those pages includes a list of our recommendations based on months of testing in all weathers good, bad and worse.
On that subject, before I share some of the deals we’ve found, a few helpful articles:
We recently completed a number of key winter-focused group tests.
If you’re a cyclist in the UK, you’ll probably be wishing that the good weather would come back.
We looked and unfortunately there aren’t any Black Friday deals on divine powers, so I’m afraid we can’t help you change the seasons. You could head to British Airways (opens in new tab) and move abroad for the next few months, but I’m going to assume that’s not feasible.
The next best thing to beating the weather when on the bike is dressing appropriately for – or avoiding – the conditions, and we can certainly help with that.
Whether that means using our Black Friday cycling clothing deals to invest in a winter-ready wardrobe and tackle the elements head on, or using ours Black Friday turbo trainer deals to kit out your pain cave and avoid the weather altogether, there are Black Friday deals to help.
The Garmin deals don’t stop at the computers, though. Smartwatches are regularly among the most sought-after items in Black Friday sales, and this year the deals look to be better than ever. Here are a few highlights:

USA deals 👇
Looking first at cycling computers, there are some seriously good deals out there, especially in the UK.
Fun fact: the name ‘Garmin’ was created by smashing together the two founders’ names. Gary Burrell and Min Kao.
First up, we’ll talk tech:
The Garmin brand is never one to shy away from a big sale, and whether it’s directly at Garmin’s website or at other retailers such as Amazon, Wiggle or Competitive Cyclist, there’s almost always a Garmin deal to find. It’s for that reason we have a separate page dedicated to it Black Friday Garmin deals.
The Garmin brand, if you’re unfamiliar, is an American brand that specializes in GPS technology. It is a market leader in various categories, across cycling, marine, driving, golf and more. For cyclists, those categories include GPS bike computers, smartwatches, as well as peripherals such as lights and power meters.
To kick things off, I’ll introduce myself. Writing this live blog currently is Josh, tech editor here at Cyclingnews. I’m ably supported by Will and Tomboth busy beavering away finding deals and updating our other various deal roundups.
Either way, keep this page open and you’ll see the best deals as soon as we find ’em!
Or to put that into English: when we find some big deals, there might be a flurry of posts in quick succession, and while we’re on the trawl for more, we’ll ease off.
In a bid to test our early-winter endurance training, we intend on running this live blog from today right through to Cyber Monday. We’ll try to keep the intensity in a solid zone two throughout, but we might get ahead of ourselves on the climbs and we can’t promise we won’t sprint for the town signposts.
And they’re off! Welcome.
