Halfords is the exclusive stockist of the
Boardman Performance Series
in the UK and recently launched the 2014 range of 25 bikes
We stock a range of
cycles, the same brand ridden by Sir Bradley Wiggins and Chris Froome when they won the Tour de France in 2012 and 2013 respectively
, one of Halfords' own brand of cycles, is the most popular brand of bikes in Britain
In 2013 we carried out 2.6 million
fitjobs for the replacement of car bulbs, windscreen wiper blades and car batteries.
We now fit c.35% of the bulbs, blades and batteries that we sell.
Service is at the heart of our proposition as we estimate two thirds of our products require some level of assistance.
Our Kids Holiday Bike workshops have taught thousands of children the basic skills of cycle maintenance
