This October half-term, Halfords is helping kids get bike savvy by hosting entry-level bike workshops for children, worth £10 per head, at most of its stores in Wales on Wednesday 28th October.
Over 62,000 children and parents have benefitted from this free-of-charge workshop that teaches 7-11 year-olds the basics of things to check on their bike. The session is ideal for kids who have little to no experience of bike maintenance and repair.
Halfords’ Community and CSR Manager, Emma Thomas, said: “The free-of-charge workshop aims to ignite a lifelong passion and interest in cycles with top tips on how to maintain your bike. Our research shows that four-in-five British adults support the idea of adding cycling proficiency to the National Curriculum – and the fact that thousands of children have benefited from our bike workshops shows how important knowledge of how to repair your bike is.”
The workshop shows children – and their parents – the key things to check on a bike. Children who take part in the workshops will receive a certificate, a 10% discount voucher to spend at Halfords and entry into a competition to win a bike. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
Places are limited so go to www.halfords.com/bikeclub to check availability and to book a space, or speak to a member of the store team.
As well as offering kids’ bike workshops at stores nationwide, to date Halfords has also taught 18,000 pupils in their final year of primary school bike maintenance and safety at schools across the country. 12,000 Cubs have attended free workshops at Halfords’ stores towards their Cyclist Activity Badge.
