Hi,

How are you?

Just wanted to get in touch as Barclays and SportsDirect have teamed up to offer a discount on helmets and thought it may be of interest.

With cycling safety high on the news agenda, Barclays wants to encourage more cyclists to consider wearing a helmet by offering 10 per cent off an extensive range of helmets at SportsDirect.

Please see below for more information, and I’ve attached an image.

Thanks,
Lauri

BARCLAYS AND SPORTSDIRECT.COM TEAM UP TO OFFER DISCOUNT ON HELMETS

Barclays wants to encourage more cyclists to consider wearing a helmet with a new and exclusive discount with the UK’s number 1 sports retailer Sportsdirect.com

As more and more people get on their bikes, whether on their daily commute or enjoying leisurely weekend rides, Barclays, sponsor of Barclays Cycle Hire and Barclays Cycle Superhighways, want to make it as affordable and easy as possible for all cyclists to access a helmet, should they wish to wear one.

Cyclists can receive 10 per cent off Sportsdirect.com’s extensive range of helmets across brands such as Dunlop, Muddyfox and MFX at Sportsdirect.com

Christine Bleakley, Barclays cycling ambassador and keen cyclist, said: “I wouldn’t feel comfortable cycling without a helmet and hope the offer will encourage more cyclists to consider wearing a helmet when on the roads.”

The offer is available until 30 June 2013 and can be redeemed online at www.sportsdirect.com and in over 400 Sportsdirect.com stores nationwide.
