Get on your bike this summer

With summer finally here, and people eager to stretch their legs after the restrictions of the past year, it’s no wonder that cycling is more popular than ever. National Bike Week earlier this month saw hundreds of bike-related activities across the UK, with thousands of people taking part.

Last summer, levels of cycling in the UK soared by as much as 200% at weekends and 100% during the week. Similar figures from the Bicycle Association show that sales of cycles and cycling accessories grew by 45% in the UK last year, adding £1 billion in sales. Although the pandemic will have boosted these numbers, data from Cycling UK show that over the longer term, the popularity of cycling has still increased by around 150% since 1993.

It’s not hard to see why more and more people are enjoying getting out and about on two wheels. As well as being a fun, easy way to get around, cycling is a great way to keep fit and active and is fantastic for your health and well-being. Cycling to work can mean you have a 45% lower risk of developing cancer. And if you cycle regularly in adulthood, you will enjoy a level of fitness equivalent to someone 10 years younger!

 

What are the benefits of buying a bike with interest free finance?

 

There are scores of different brands and types of bicycles to get you moving, from racing bikes, road bikes and touring bikes, to mountain bikes, shoppers, and even e-bikes. But with some top-of-the-range models costing upwards of £1,000, getting the right bike for the right price can be tricky.

That’s why our interest free credit option is so popular with bike buyers. Our retail partners offer a huge range of cycles on 0% finance meaning you don’t have to splash out in one go. You can spread the cost over a number of manageable payments, over two to 12 months, and you don’t pay any interest.

 

Spread the cost of your next bike

 

Whether you’re eyeing up a road bike or a mountain bike, a bike for weekend adventuring or a bike for everyday commuting, buying a bike on finance with us means the price on the website is the price you pay, with no hidden extras or additional charges.

If you’re planning to ditch your car and use a bike for some local journeys instead, you might consider getting a road bike or an urban commuting bike. These tend to have chunkier frames, fatter tyres and – crucially! – comfier saddles. They also often come with a cycle rack or basket of some kind for putting your things in while you’re cycling.

If you’re more of a speed demon, then take a look at some of the racing bikes available on interest free credit via our retailer partners. Racing bikes tend to be sleeker, lighter and therefore faster, with the aim of getting you from A to B as quickly and easily as possible.

A mountain bike will be a bit of both – a strong but lightweight frame, chunky tyres for extra grip and usually some suspension to cushion you as you fly down the hills.

Of course, if the idea of pedalling your bike up a hill of any sort sends you hurrying for the car keys, why not check out an interest free electric bike, or e-bike? An e-bike offers the best of both worlds – the ease and health-benefits of cycling, but with a bit of motorised assistance to get you up those hills in one piece.

For more inspiration, take a look at some of the exciting bikes available from our retail partners. There is sure to be something for you!
