Halfords offers commuters e-bike loans to help with tube closures
Halfords is offering Northern line commuters free e-bike loans, as workers face a 17-week line closure.
During the period that the Bank branch is closed between Kennington and Moorgate for 17 weeks, commuters with a valid Oyster card or season ticket can claim a week-long loan of an e-bike from the retailer.
The initiative will run from Halfords branches in Brixton, Balham and Hendon, all of which are close to stations affected by the closure
Halfords is asking cyclists to pay a £101 refundable deposit, which they will get back when they return their bike.
Paul Tomlinson, cycling director at Halfords, said: “Maintenance on the Northern line will cause huge disruption to commuters who already had to travel on one of the busiest services in the whole country.
“But there is another way to get around. E-bikes are fun, fast and simple, and much of Central London is now well-served by safe cycling lanes. So why not travel above ground and see what you’ve been missing all these years?”
