Your bodies may take a chocolate-related knock-back this weekend, but there's no reason your cycling wardrobes and bikes need to take a hit too!
This weekend's Easter sale over at Wiggle will give you plenty of options for marginal gains in your cycling gear that'll make up for those extra pounds you'll inevitably put on over the weekend.
With pretty substantial discounts on bikes, clothing, groupsets and wheels, you're bound to find something to help you go a little faster or a little mor comfortable.
Alternatively, you could just dive in and check out the full range of discounts yourselves.
De Rosa's Idol 6800 runs, you guessed it, Shimano's Ultegra 6800 groupset.
It's a high-grade carbon fibre race bike that rolls on a Fulcrum Racing Sport wheelset and Continental Grand Sport tyres.
With a third off its asking price, it's a total bargain right now if you're looking for a new summer bike.
Know that we liked what we saw when it was in for review! Our tech editor gave the bike an 8/10.
Shimano's 2016 Dura Ace groupset is available at a 30% discount right now over at Wiggle.
We don't need to tell you how excellent Shimano's top level groupset is. We've done the reviews, we've waxed lyrical and given it a road.cc 9/10.
But if you want to know what the R9100 groupset does better than its predecessors, check out our top 5 key innovations article below:
Sitting pretty on a road.cc 9/10 review, Catlike's Mixino Helmet
Our man George Hill called it a "very good helmet, especially if you're looking for maximum ventilation."
Which means its the perfect option if you're looking for a good weather lid for the next few months.
When we were talking about marginal gains earlier in this piece we had bits of gear like this in mind.
If you're after a pair of pro-level bib shorts for a ridiculously reasonable price, look no further.
Our esteemed reviewer Stu Kerton put the non-April shower Rain Defence-ready Aeron shorts through their paces last year and gave them an incredible 9/10.
Don't believe the recent good weather. It's not yet time to bury your base layers.
Certainly, the major freezes are behind us, but we're bound to have a couple of cold snaps before summer proper is upon us.
Also, they're incredibly useful bits of gear for all sorts of weather conditions and sports - not just cycling.
Our final deal in this Easter bonanza is Campagnolo's Zonda C17 wheelset.
No, they're not the ultra lightweight wheels that the pros roll on, but they no slouches.
The slightly wider rims and aerodynamic shape reduce rolling resistance and drag while remaining comfortable.
I am not giving professional advice, but I would note that neither design nor copyright provide any protection for a method of manufacture.
