Sports nutrition products are an excellent way of conveniently and efficiently getting the fuel and nutrients you require in order to perform at your full potential. Protein products are ideal for recovery while energy bars, powders and gels give you the necessary fuel when you need it most.
Dedicated sports nutrition products can be expensive, so with some big Black Friday discounts out there it is a good time to stock up. What’s more, sports nutrition products often have long shelf lives meaning you feasibly stock up for the coming season now and not worry about products going out of date.

Where can I find the best Black Friday cycling deals?
All of the big cycling retailers have followed the pattern of great deals of tech products by more general retailers, offering huge discounts on bikes for Black Friday. Coming at the end of year, this is useful for retailers to boost their 2016 sales, and also help to shift 2016 stock in order to make space in their warehouses for 2017 bikes, perhaps equipped with the new Shimano Dura-Ace groupset.
Black Friday 2016 at Evans Cycles
Of all the big names, Evans Cycles probably has the best range manufacturers from which to pick the best Black Friday bike deals, with bikes from road bikes from BMC, Specialized, Trek, Bianchi, Fuji, and Pinnacle all being on the company’s books. Plus, there’s always the option to pop into a bricks and mortar store too.

The pick of the Chain Reaction Black Friday deals are likely to be on Vitus bikes, which (as with Castaway with Wiggle) are owned and produced by Chain Reaction. The Northern Irish company also stocks bikes from Cube, Fuji, Ghost, and Raleigh, so expect to see discounts on those too.

Black Friday 2016 at Ribble Cycles
Ribble Cycles’ Black Friday deals are likely to focus on a mixture of the company’s own bikes, and other brand’s clothing and equipment. Ribble regularly promotes a bike of the week on Facebook, with bike discounts on pre-built bikes, so expect a similar pattern but on a much bigger scale on the week leading up to Black Friday.

Black Friday 2016 at Amazon
Amazon might not seem like the natural place to go in search of Black Friday bike deals, but the huge online retailer actually has a surprising array of half-decent cycling kit to choose from. For example there were some great discounts on Garmin Edge computers for Amazon Prime Day, so expect to see the same sort of deals for Black Friday.

Black Friday 2016 at Sigma Sport
Sigma Sport has a selection Black Friday bike deals to choose from, both on its website, and in its West London store. Expect discounts on a wide range of different products, including Mavic wheels, Giro shoes and helmets, and Cannondale bikes, with deals starting from the Monday before Black Friday.
Black Friday 2016 on the high street
Of course the other option is to shop local. A lot of local bike shops will be getting into the spirit of things with discounts of their own, and although these Black Friday bike deals might not always be at the levels on offer by the big online retailers, it does give you the opportunity to support a local business, and you can always rely on excellent customer service and on-hand mechanics that you won’t get from anything on the other side of a computer screen.
