Pre-pedalled bikes

Our pre-pedalled bikes are pre-owned bikes that have been given a new lease of life by our experts, each one is repaired and fully safety checked by an expert, including comprehensive checks of the frame and components. Each bike comes with a 12-month warranty, giving you peace of mind that you can ride away safely.

Xtending every bike's journey

At the Halfords Bike Xchange, we’re committed to reducing both our waste and our CO2 emissions. Here’s how:

  • Each bike that’s expertly restored and sold to our customers results in an estimated 157.7kg CO2 emissions saving (versus buying a new bike).
  • If we restore 100,000 bikes, this will lead to an estimated 15,770 tonnes of CO2 saved!
  • If a bike can’t be resold by Halfords, we’ll share this with our charity partners who repair and donate bikes to African communities.
  • If a bike is unrepairable, it will be sent to our charity partner Re-cycle so that they can recover the valuable materials.
