Well priced and easy to use trailer. A hit with rider & passengers.
I have 2 year old twin boys, and whilst they’re not old enough to cycle yet, that doesn’t mean they can’t be involved. I had seen quite a few people riding round our neighbourhood with trailers pulling their kids and thought it was a great idea. After a bit of research I decided to give Halford’s Double Buggy Child Bike Trailer a go.
So after my dilemma of whether to upgrade or replace my bike, I went for upgrading the drivetrain to start with.

Merlin Cycles have been around since 1993, and I think I’ve probably been shopping with them since then.

A lot of Swindon has been built from scratch in new housing estates, and while cycling in general is well catered for with dedicated cycle paths everywhere, it’s nearly all tarmac with few opportunities for offroad cycling. Fortunately there is a brilliant dedicated trail in Swindon, with some really excellent riding.
The Croft Trail is 3 mile loop of waymarked woodland trail, with a beginner (blue) and
more technical (red) routes located opposite the Nationwide headquarters off Piper Way. There is a free car park on site and it is only a mile from the train station as well. Read More
