It might be turning chilly, but Halfords are on a mission to get more children out on their bikes with some free kids’ bike workshops.

The workshops will take place across the UK during the half term week on Wednesday, 26th October 2016.

The entry level sessions (worth £10) are aimed at children aged 7 – 11 years who would like to learn how to care for their bikes.

Each workshop will help kids get to grips with basic bicycle maintenance, from checking tyre pressure and fixing a puncture to adjusting the saddle.

At the end of the event, every child will also receive a free goody bag that will contain a tool kit, slap-wrap, discount voucher and a certificate.
