The clocks going forward is the traditional signal to put away the mudguard bike having done your winter miles, and to start enjoying those summer smiles. Or, in the 21st century, if you’ve been hitting Zwift hard during the dark months, to emerge blinking into the sunlight on a real bike on real roads.

So that you can get yourself kitted out ready for riding outdoors this spring, we’ve rounded up some of the products you’ll need – and found the best deals from the online retailers.

Don't leave home with a SiS gel or two – there are some fantastic offers direct from Science in Sport for UK and US customers.

It's also time for fit some lighter, faster rubber: we've found some good deals on Conti GP5000s on both sides of the Atlantic.

Keep you bike in tip-top condition through the changeable early weeks of spring with cleaning products, kits and lubes – we've included those too.

Cycling Weekly's tech team have years experience of testing kit, and we would never recommend anything we wouldn't use ourselves.

With each products is a 'View Deal' link. By clicking on these we may receive a small amount of commission from the retailer, but this doesn't affect the amount you pay.
