Halfords is one of the best places to buy an electric bike on a budget. The UK retailer recently checked out a range of impressive Carrera electric bikes, priced starting at £ 1,099. That’s a very attractive price, especially considering that not so long ago you were looking to spend around £ 2,000 or £ 3,000 on a reasonably decent entry-level electric bike.
And if you’re thinking of getting yourself an electric bike, now is the time to get a taste of why these motorized two-wheelers have grown in popularity over the past year or so. This week Halfords launched a new program that allows people to try an electric bike for free.
The test lasts six hours and anyone who signs up has a wide range of electric bikes to choose from. Rather than restricting themselves to a handful of bikes for a test ride, customers can choose from 13 different options.
The electric bikes Halfords is offering as part of the testing program include foldable bikes, mountain bikes, and traditional-looking racing bikes. Two-wheelers from Carrera and Pendleton can be tried out as part of the Halfords free trial.
To participate in the program, you must go to Halford’s website and see if your local store offers an e-bike trial.
You will then need to make an appointment and on the day you bring two IDs including a photo ID and leave a refundable security deposit of £ 101.
The deposit will be fully refunded to the card you paid with.
“Or alternatively, if you’ve been bitten by the electric bike virus and you like what you’ve seen so far, you can use the deposit to buy a Halfords electric bike.
About the start of the free trial, Halfords said: “The popularity of e-bikes has continued to grow in recent years and offers a great alternative to traditional modes of transportation in everyday life – riders of all ages can tackle more demanding journeys, come faster and with less Effort to the goal and bring the fun back to the regular trips. “
The website added, “Investing in an electric bike is not an easy decision, but Halfords is here to help! Our free electric bike trial allows you to test an electric bike for up to six hours so you can see if electric is the way to go for you.
“Not only is an electric bike better for the environment, it can also improve your mental and physical well-being while allowing you to keep cycling.”
