Halfords offering rail commuters free e-bike loans during strikes

Halfords is offering rail commuters affected by this week’s train disruptions the free use of an e-bike to get to work.

More than 40,000 railway workers who are members of the RMT union are staging a one-day strike today, 27th July, and about 5,500 train drivers are set to strike on Saturday 30th July.

Halfords launched a nationwide e-bike trial scheme in October 2021 at its UK stores, giving customers the chance to try an e-bike for free for six hours. Now, the company is pledging to offer any rail commuter with a valid season ticket one of its loan e-bikes on 27th and 30th July while the rail disruption is ongoing. Halfords ran the same initiative earlier this year.

E-bikes will be provided on a first come first served basis, and are also subject to trial e-bike stock which is limited.

Commuters can enter their postcode into the Halfords e-bike trial finder to check whether their local store offers trial e-bikes. They must then call or visit the store to check the availability of a bike and book. A £101 deposit will be taken when the bike is collected, which is refunded in full when the bike is returned.
