Commuting by bike is good for your wallet, waist, and the environment. And now Halfords is encouraging rail commuters to give it a go, with an offer of a free e-bike loan for all of next week, while the rail strikes are impacting services (21, 23 and 25 June). 

The e-bikes will be offered across all of Halford's 404 stores. However, a valid and in date season ticket (or the equivalent weekly or daily tickets) covering the seven-day loan period is required. Also, the offer is subject to trial e-bike stock, which is limited.

After winning the 2019 National Single-Speed Cross-Country Mountain Biking Championships and claiming the plushie unicorn (true story), Stefan swapped the flat-bars for drop-bars and has never looked back. 

Since then, he’s earnt his 2ⁿᵈ cat racing licence in his first season racing as a third, completed the South Downs Double in under 20 hours and Everested in under 12.

But his favourite rides are multiday bikepacking trips, with all the huge amount of cycling tech and long days spent exploring new roads and trails - as well as histories and cultures. Most recently, he’s spent two weeks riding from Budapest into the mountains of Slovakia
