Now that January's out of the way it's time to start looking forward at what the rest of 2017 holds, right? And, if you're thinking about a cycling holiday, the DealCatcher's got a treat for you.
La Vie en Velo is offering 10% discounts on any holidays road.cc readers book in February, so start looking now!
Chain Reaction Cycles has an absolutely enormous discount on an Endura rain jacket, and there's a decent 25% off Ribble's Sportive Racing Ultegra FSA Special Edition road bike.
La Vie en Vélo
First up are the holidays.
The folks at La Vie en Velo pride themselves on their hassle-free cycling holidays. They've got a custom-fitted bike trailer on which they'll load-up the bikes of all of the holidayers, and take them down to your destination ahead of your arrival.
La Vie en Velo's extensive knowledge of the areas they offer holidays will also give you plenty of pointers towards the best places to visit. That way, you won't have to worry about anything whatsoever, apart from choosing your destination.
The featured holidays here are the Mont Ventoux & Alps holidays, though the spaces left on those are limited.
The Pyrenees holidays have recently been added to La Vie en Velo's website, so there are plenty of spaces left. Four days of stunning cycling in the mountains start with you flying into Toulouse, then heading out for supported rides with the La Vie en Velo bunch.
To claim your discount, all you have to do is quote that you came from road.cc while you're booking your holiday!
Chain Reaction Cycles
It's not often we feature discounts that are this heavy.
86% off anything is worth paying attention to, and when it's a jacket we've reviewed positively, it's even more important that you listen.
We called Endura's Photon Jacket a "well thought-out" "comfortable and functional" jacket when we reviewed it. When we looked at the £70 price tag, we also thought that was fair.
Which, if logic serves, makes this price unfair. Not for you though.
Finally, take advantage of Ribble's limited-time offer on the carbon Sportive Racing Special Edition road bike.
For the next five days you'll be able to get your hands on the Shimano Ultegra-equipped bike for a smashing £1249.
We took the alloy version out for a spin a while back. Our man Stu Kerton was a little bit iffy on the frame, but fortunately, you'll be getting a sharper one here.
The rest of the bike looks exceptional on paper.
It is great having small companies that want to produce anything in Europe in a Chinese products infested market. And while this may not excite...

Ebay can be quite good but list it when they have one of their 80% off selling fees weekends (seem to be every second Friday-Monday), or else you...
Manufacturing defect, send it back for a refund. Could be any number of reasons. Inconvenient but it won't take long to fix.
It's not the same without a lirpa loof reference, but that's going back a few years now
I'm pleased that local businesses seem to be more aware of issues than the council are - maybe they should volunteer to walk/cycle along the path...
