BRITISH bicycles and car products retailer Halfords profit more than double from a bike boom in Britain following COVID-driven sales.

The company reported on Wednesday, November 18, that it made an underlying pretax profit of £56 million (€63 million) in the six months to October 2.

The positive news from Halfords means that these latest figures are up from £25.9 million (€29 million) in the same period last year.

Since the start of the pandemic, Britons have tried their best to avoid using public transport to fit in with government-issued COVID guidelines which has seen an increase in the popularity of cycling.
