It strikes us, though, that cycling-mania represents the perfect time to spend some money on you and your precious bike, so here are our favourite Sunday trading deals this week.
3T Orbis II C35 Pro Clincher wheelset
Read more: Wheel buyer's guide
3T says these are its entry level race wheels, which makes them a great upgrade for those wanting to start competing or even just training on some better rolling hoops. They're up to date in terms of wheel tech – supporting wider tyres for better grip and lower rolling resistance.
Northwave Sonic 2 SRS road shoe
Read more: Northwave Sonic SRS review
Well ventilated, stiff and lightweight at 290g, these are a great pair of shoes that'll go the distance with you. The integrated heel system also keeps you heel secure, so there's no chance of pulling out of the back of the shoe when hammering on the pedals.
Shimano Ultegra SPD-SL pedals PD-6800
The same great retention system that all Shimano pedals have but with a lower weight and now a far lower price point. If you've upgraded everything else on your bike, pedals are always a great way to shave down some weight.
Oakley Jawbreaker Prizm road sunglasses
Oakley's best sunglasses just got an even better price tag. We're starting to get well and truly into summer now, so if you haven't got hold of a pair of glasses, now's the time. Plus, the easy lens switch – Oakley's Switchlock tech – means they're useful in the winter time, too.
