If you can't find something you like in the selection we've picked out below, you're bound to find something your after in Wiggle's deep trove of cycling offers which you can find be following this link.
At its original RRP of £110 we liked the Lezyne Mini GPS. For this price it's probably the best value way to get into using GPS to record your rides around.
If you're serious about indoor training this is the ultimate power-measuring, interactive trainer. It can simulate a slope of up to 24% for a super-hard workout, and it's quiet so the family can watch TV while you work your butt off next door.
When it's cold and it rains the first two things to go are your toes and your fingers, followed swiftly by your feet and your hands.
Give your feet the helping hand they need by heading out in some proper overshoes, like these from BBB.
The Trace front and rear lights from Exposure are amazingly bright for such tiny units. They're USB-rechargeable so you'll never run out of light and they're as weatherproof as it gets.
At just 155g, this curvy saddle from Shimano sister brand Pro is an inexpensive way to lop some significant weight off your bike. It comes in two widths and gets its low gram count from carbon fibre rails.
Thin enough to fit in regular cycling shoes, but with the extra warmth of wool, these soft, comfy socks are great for Spring riding.
Castelli describes the Volo as its 'workshorse' shorts. They claim outstanding fit, 200+ gram Lycra and KISS Air seat pad that’s the choice of a number of pro riders.
John has been writing about bikes and cycling for over 30 years since discovering that people were mug enough to pay him for it rather than expecting him to do an honest day's work.
He was heavily involved in the mountain bike boom of the late 1980s as a racer, team manager and race promoter, and that led to writing for Mountain Biking UK magazine shortly after its inception. He got the gig by phoning up the editor and telling him the magazine was rubbish and he could do better. Rather than telling him to get lost, MBUK editor Tym Manley called John’s bluff and the rest is history.
Since then he has worked on MTB Pro magazine and was editor of Maximum Mountain Bike and Australian Mountain Bike magazines, before switching to the web in 2000 to work for CyclingNews.com. Along with road.cc founder Tony Farrelly, John was on the launch team for BikeRadar.com and subsequently became editor in chief of Future Publishing’s group of cycling magazines and websites, including Cycling Plus, MBUK, What Mountain Bike and Procycling.
John has also written for Cyclist magazine, edited the BikeMagic website and was founding editor of TotalWomensCycling.com before handing over to someone far more representative of the site's main audience.
He joined road.cc in 2013. He lives in Cambridge where the lack of hills is more than made up for by the headwinds.
