Halfords and Boardman competition.

Afternoon guys and girls! How are we all doing? Well I hope!

Todays post is exactly as it says on the tin, a competition brought to you from Halfords and Boardman bikes where you can win a chance to go ride with one of the key players in the cycling world, Chris Boardman!

Now before I go into more details about the competition, firstly lets talk about the boom that has been cycling in the UK in recent years. Unless you have been living under a rock, you will have no doubt realised that in recent times, the roads and towns and have been taken over by 2 wheeled enthusiasts like a tribe of modern day vikings, claiming local cafes for their own and leaving no cake and coffee behind in their wake, its cyclist fuel in its truest form! But none the less cycling has really taken off and lets hope this continues for many more generations to come. Its keeps you fit and healthy and helps keep those KG's off your waist line, and if you are like me and have the BMI of pie, then this is always a big help!

The UK has seen the worlds most famous cycle race, the Tour De France come to its shores and my did we get behind it like a true brit should, armed with a pint of Ale and pork pie we cheered the riders on and really showed the world how passionate us Brits are about cycling and did it well!

As well as this the Cycle2Work scheme has been doing wonders with getting us up and mobile by allowing us to purchase cycles and equipment up the value of £1000 to then pay it back in monthly instalments through our pay and I think this has also added to the numbers of us 2 wheeled warriors on the road and cycle paths around the country!

Whether you love it or hate it, cycling is here and shows no sign of slowing down in its popularity and long may it continue!

Right back to the competition, if you decide to click on the link below, you will have the chance to head out with Mr Boardman himself to test out some of the latest bikes that are due to be released from the Boardman range. Not only this, but you can bring a friend along to share in the experience with you, then once you are over the excitement of that, you and your friend of choice (form an orderly cue friends) will get to keep a bike up to the value of £1000! There are runners up prizes also but to find out more, please go to this link and take a look for yourself!

I for one shall be entering as this kind of chance is just too good to pass on and I wont lie I may fangirl it massively being the cycle geek I am!


Best of luck everyone, whether you win or lose, just enjoy being out there on two wheels and get exploring!
