Despite resistance from the British public to accept the American tradition, enough of us are taking advantage of Black Friday and Cyber Monday that retailers are unlikely to drop the idea any time soon.
£3.3 billion was spent on the high street on Black Friday in 2015, and it currently holds the record as the biggest day for online sales ever.
So if you can’t beat them, why not join them. We’ve collected up the various offers from some our partner companies, friends in the cycling business, and fellow British Triathlon Federation sponsors getting in on the Black Friday or ‘Triday’ action.
In other words, here’s a big long list of cycling related things you didn’t know you wanted until you saw how cheap they were. Click the links for details.
