Halfords calls on Sheffield residents to test e-bikes in new trials
Residents in Sheffield are among the first to be offered an exciting opportunity to test e-bikes as part of new trials by Halfords.
Halfords has announced that it will be offering a total of three million hours of free e-bike trials over the next year, with residents local to the Sheffield store able to take part now.
Participants will be treated to a choice of up to 12 e-bikes and will be given the opportunity to try out the bike for up to six hours.
Customers are given ample time to get a feel for their chosen e-bike, including the range, comfortability and speed - so they can ride away confident that their questions have been answered.
Over the past 18 months, electric bikes have increased in popularity; and with one in three workers being reluctant to commute to work by public transport, e-bikes offer a feasible alternative and make cycling far more accessible for all.
Riders of all ages can tackle more challenging journeys, get to places faster and with benefits for the environment too; it's no wonder sales have grown by 76 per cent year on year.
Residents in Sheffield can now book a trial slot and learn all they need to know about their chosen e-bike.
To take part in the new trial, simply enter your postcode into the Halfords e-bike trial finder, and browse the availability at your local store.
From there, you can choose a day and time that suits you and book a slot - a £101 deposit will be taken when the bike is collected but is refunded in full when returned.
