The danger of joining the bike brigade over lockdown 1.0 is now you’ve got the bug. What the cyclists don’t tell you before you sign up? One bike is never enough.

If you’ve gone for the elegant city bike look, you’ll realise you want a speed machine for zipping round Richmond Park on a Sunday. If you’ve opted for a road bike, suddenly the option of going further afield for the same pedal power is tempting you to join the e-bike squad.

The good news is this week’s pre-Christmas price slashes mean you can afford both (or all three!). From the hero hybrid deal to the electric scooter you can fold up and sling over your shoulder, these are the best cycling discounts to snap up this Black Friday.

Road bikes

The safest place to start if you’re a beginner is by getting a road bike - speedy and versatile for zipping around the city, and less of an investment than an electric model. If you shop around, you can snap up a good one for less than £150.

For longer commutes experts recommend a hybrid or road bike, while folding bikes are sensible if bike storage is limited or you’re braving rush hour at Clapham Junction.

Electric bikes

First, ask yourself one question: are you cycling for the sweatwork, or to beat the bus? If the latter, consider joining the electric bike brigade. It’ll help you up the hills so you can be more adventurous with your routes, and you can still opt to put the effort in - the bonus is you go further for the same level of effort.

Electric scooters

Scooter bros might have a rep, but there’s a reason they zip around in suits - the beauty of an electric scooter is it combines the ease of an e-bike with the wonder of standing and therefore not risking ripping your trousers. They’re also smaller and lighter so you can sling it over your shoulder when you get to the office or your mate’s flat. Everyone has space in their hallway for a scooter.

Bike kit

Now everyone’s a cyclist, Christmas is easy. Black Friday is the perfect excuse to stock up on Secret Santa gifts for that cycling-obsessed uncle - and now your sister, too. Bike pumps, handlebar navigators and snazzy new bike jackets are topping Christmas lists this year, so make sure you grab all the deals while you can.
