New to cycling, need an incentive to get into the saddle or want to make your commute less taxing? Then enter our competition to win one of Halfords’ Victoria Pendleton electric bikes – and join in a cycling trend that’s taking off.
‘This year more and more people are discovering electric bikes,’ says Andy Whitehall, Halfords’ electric bike expert. With e-bikes you still have to pedal but the difference is you can ride much further, hills will feel flatter and you’ll arrive at work fresher – you won’t even have to wear lycra.’ That’s good news for those of us who don’t like the hassle of showering at the office.
Great for more zip
GB Olympic Gold medallist Victoria Pendleton says, ‘I first tried riding an e-bike in California and it was so much fun I wanted to design one myself. Electric bikes are great for giving you an extra boost when you’re low on energy!
‘I believe e-bikes are a game- changer. Lots more people will be able to get out and have
fun cycling with their families, whether that’s for leisure, staycationing or a more ambitious cycling challenge.’
The Pendleton Somerby e-bike, made from lightweight aluminium, has eight gears, Tektro Aluminium V-brakes and comes in two frame sizes, 17in or 19in. Visit halfords.co.uk for details.
