Amazon Prime Day deals: save £66 on an Apple iPad Air

A bumper Amazon Prime Day saving on an excellent Zwift companion

You may be wondering why, on a cycling site, would we be showing you an Apple iPad Air... with 10.5-inch screen, Wi-Fi connectivity and 64GB of storage space?

Well, Amazon Prime Day cycling deals don't have to be the obvious stuff – and if you're looking for a screen to enter the Zwift virtual world, this could be the one.

An Apple iPad has a lot more cycling uses than you might first think. Platforms such as Zwift are available on the App Store and work on an iPad. This could be an easy to use, lightweight change to moving around the laptop or computer when you want to cycle and watch the cycling on TV.

Speaking of TV, you could also download Eurosport Player or GCN Race Pass to watch all the races you want wherever you want, as long as WiFi is available.

Say the price has been slashed by £66 and surely you're interested?

You will need the large memory of this particular iPad as the Zwift app is a hefty 1.5GB, which doesn't sound like a lot compared to the memory, but it adds up when you download other apps.

Bluetooth turbo trainers and sensors are essential as the iOS app does not support ANT+, even with an adaptor. This isn't always the case, but if you have an older trainer then it may be worth checking beforehand.

Hi, I'm one of Cycling Weekly's content writers for the web team responsible for writing stories on racing, tech, updating evergreen pages as well as the weekly email newsletter. Proud Yorkshireman from the UK's answer to Flanders, Calderdale, go check out the cobbled climbs!

I started watching cycling back in 2010, before all the hype around London 2012 and Bradley Wiggins at the Tour de France. In fact, it was Alberto Contador and Andy Schleck's battle in the fog up the Tourmalet on stage 17 of the Tour de France.

It took me a few more years to get into the journalism side of things, but I had a good idea I wanted to get into cycling journalism by the end of year nine at school and started doing voluntary work soon after. This got me a chance to go to the London Six Days, Tour de Yorkshire and the Tour of Britain to name a few before eventually joining Eurosport's online team while I was at uni, where I studied journalism. Eurosport gave me the opportunity to work at the world championships in Harrogate back in the awful weather.

After various bar jobs, I managed to get my way into Cycling Weekly in late February of 2020 where I mostly write about racing and everything around that as it's what I specialise in but don't be surprised to see my name on other news stories.

When not writing stories for the site, I don't really switch off my cycling side as I watch every race that is televised as well as being a rider myself and a regular user of the game Pro Cycling Manager. Maybe too regular.

My bike is a well used Specialized Tarmac SL4 when out on my local roads back in West Yorkshire as well as in northern Hampshire with the hills and mountains being my preferred terrain.
