Aldi shoppers keen to look and feel part of the Olympics action won’t want to miss out on Aldi’s dedicated Team GB cycling range, available in stores and online on 7 July.
Road cycling enthusiasts should get geared up for Aldi’s deals and quality cycling kit this July, with a full Team GB outfit available for just £32.97. The set includes a smart Team Cycling Jersey (£8.99), available in blue or white, which allows cyclists to ride with ease, featuring an elongated back hem, anti-slip tape and moisture management system.
For those wanting to complete the look, Aldi’s stretchable and breathable Team Cycling Jackets are a steal at just £14.99, featuring three open-back pockets and one zipped-back pocket. The great-value Team Cycling Shorts (£8.99) come with a Dolomiti seat pad, functional anti-slip hem and Sanitised ActiFresh lining, ensuring maximum comfort whilst in the saddle. All clothing items are available in sizes small to extra-large.
As well as great-value clothing, cyclists can pick up deals on bicycle accessories including a Track/Floor Bike Pump (£5.99), Muc-Off Lube Mix (£4.99) and Bike Maintenance Spray for just £1.99!

We were lucky enough to get our hands on the cycling gloves and shorts to try out, and with the official Team GB branding emblazoned on the gear, they certainly made us look the part! The shorts are well-made and feature a gel seat pad, anti-slip hem and elastic fabric to help keep you comfortable on the narrowest of saddles. We tried out a women’s small (8–10) and a men’s medium (33–35″) and the sizing seemed to be accurate, although definitely not on the large side (but I guess they need to be figure-hugging!). The shorts kept their shape really well after washing and seem like they should stand the test of time. Plus they’re a real bargain at just £8.99, seeing as you could easily fork out £30+ for a pair of padded shorts in a cycle store.
The gloves are available in three colours – we tried out the black with blue and white design, which looked really smart. They have some nice features, such as a gel pad to help stop you getting blisters, terry material on the thumb to wipe away perspiration, and a velcro strap and elastic loops on the fingers to help you get them off. Again, the gloves seem to be well made and feel like they’ll last a long time – and at just £3.49 a pair, they’re another biking bargain!
If you were to get kitted out in all the Aldi Team GB cycling range, you wouldn’t look out of place at the head of a peloton – which hopefully didn’t cause too much confusion in our case, as we struggled up a rather steep hill in Richmond Park!
The Team GB Cycling range is available in stores nationwide and online from 7 July, but be quick because, as with all Specialbuys, once they’re gone they’re gone!
