Win a Bike!


Winner: Amy Gallagher

We’ve had loads of great give-aways lately on the Very Blog ranging from mobile phones, handbags, beauty goodies, premiere tickets, prams, wellies, false tan to even tandem skydives!  But we’ve never gave away a BIKE!

After watching Bradley Wiggins monumental win in the Tour de France, and with the Olympics about to start tomorrow are you itching to get on your bike?  Or are you a budding Cyclist who one day wants to win the yellow jersey and repeat Wiggins win?

Cycling is also an easy way of getting out the house and keeping fit (you can even save some money by commuting to work!) and is a great way to have healthy fun for all the family.  Whether you’re an expert or beginner, have bikes, helmets and accessories to suit most needs and now, our Cycle Assembly Network has made it even easier to get out and about on your new bike.

With our new Home Assembly Service from the Cycle Assembly Network you can relax at home whilst a professional mechanic, using his skills and experience makes sure that your bike is set up correctly and safely.  It really couldn’t be easier!   Professional assembly, full brake and gear set up and comprehensive safety check are all part of the Home Assembly service, which means you’ll get the most out of your new bike right from the start.  We can even come back and service your bike with our Basic Service to ensure your Bike is in tip top condition whenever you want to use it.  All you have to do is purchase a bike from us and order one of the following options:

Adult Bike Assembly | Child Bike Assembly | Basic Bike Service


For a chance to win an Elswick 700C Equipe Road Bike worth £329 also with a free assembly by Cycle Assembly Network all you have to do is answer the following question in the comment box below: Who won the Tour De France 2012 and where will YOU go on your new bike?

I will ride my bike all around ireland, the entire coast to coast.
Then, I will take it across Europe.

And once I’ve done that next year, it’s going to the Sikkim Region where I will cycle with my friend.

I recently had to give up my trusty road bike following a redundancy (sans handsome redundancy payment) so I’ve been off the bike since March and I can’t take it anymore.

My bike is my life!
