CYCLING

THE BRAKES

The brakes should not stick and should fully stop the wheel when in motion. To test them, don’t squeeze the brakes all the way in. Instead, gently squeeze them to make sure they’re working.

THE TYRES

Bike tyres are susceptible to punctures but can be quickly fixed. They’re easy enough to repair with a Halfords Puncture Repair Kit and there is a handy online video that will get you back in the saddle – check it out at halfords.com/cycling.

Before you hop on your bike, some simple maintenance may be in order to make sure everything is as it should be.

D

id you know that a cycle helmet can reduce head injuries by 85 per cent*? While accidents can always be a risk of any physical activity, there are lots of steps we can take to reduce the chance of a serious injury. Helmet fitting The helmet should fit the head snugly and not move around when your child cycles. Obviously fitting it too tight will cause complaints from your little ones, so make sure it’s both comfortable and fitted properly. Your child should be

CHILDREN’S CYCLE HELMET SAFETY able to open their mouth widely, in comfort, when the chin straps are adjusted correctly. Most important is the clicking dial on the back, used to tighten the headband so that it fits well. This allows the helmet to fit different head sizes but also allows you to expand it as your child grows.

Helmet straps need to fit around the ears, not over them. The strap has to be fastened securely to be effective, but too tight and your child may refuse to wear the helmet. Many helmets have removable pads, too. These can be used to secure the helmet, or can be removed if they aren’t needed. Halfords has an online fitting guide video in the Cycling section (halfords.com/cycling), which will help you fit your child’s helmet correctly. Don’t forget the very little ones If you’re putting your toddler into a bike seat or buggy it’s just as important to have them wear a helmet. Halfords’ toddler helmets come in a variety of fun designs, so you can let them pick the style they like the most.

NEW UK ROAD LAWS WHAT ALL DRIVERS NEED TO KNOW These are the most important things to remember as the UK has a shake-up of driving rules.

N

ew changes to UK laws are having a big impact on UK drivers now they have come into place. From learners on the motorway to stricter MOTs, there’s a lot to take in. These are some of the most important things.

MOTs

As of May 2018, the MOT test has introduced new failure and defect categories. The test now categorises defects as either Minor, Major or Dangerous. Under the new rules drivers who receive a Major or Dangerous fault will automatically fail their MOT test. Drivers can still pass if they receive a Minor fault, but it will be noted down on the car’s MOT certificate.  The test is now also tougher on diesel cars. Emissions limits for diesel engines will be

Other changes include checks on whether brake discs are obviously worn, oil contamination of the discs and how well they are securely attached to the wheel hubs.   If you want to be safe and legal setting off on your summer adventures, Halfords Autocentres provide MOT services for £29.99.

a fixed penalty notice of £100 and three penalty points will be issued as a consequence.

Smart motorway

Drivers can now be penalised in the UK for driving in a motorway lane that is marked by a red X, referring to a lane closure. Roadside cameras will detect drivers flouting the rules and

Motorway learners

As of June 4, it is now legal for learner car drivers to go on the motorway providing they are with a qualified driving instructor and the car has dual-controls. Learners don’t have to practise on the motorway to pass, but having their instructors show them how to drive safely should help boost confidence. And whether you’re learning to drive or not, you can always get another pair of eyes on the road via a dash cam.

GET READY FOR A MINI ADVENTURE

Cardiff to the Brecon Beacons National Park To reach the amazing Brecon Beacons, start at Cardiff and head north along the A470. The Welsh national park is so beautiful that you’ll probably want your camera with you. There are loads of campsites within the park, so make sure you pack a tent and book a pitch. TOP TIP Halfords.com has guides to choosing the right kit to take with you as well as recipe ideas for your camping trip.

Penrith to Haydon Bridge The A686 between Penrith and Haydon Bridge starts at the edge of the stunning Lake District National Park. It’s a short drive and the route gives you plenty of stunning camping options.

New rules for using a phone for navigation

Using a phone while driving or riding a motorcycle is strictly banned, and the penalties are steep for those who get caught breaking the law. These rules also apply for using a sat nav while driving. Instead, you can use Bluetooth or mount your device on your windscreen. A Halfords One Touch Universal Car Mount Holder (£8, save £2), is recommended for this.

HOW TO ADD A TOUCH OF LUXURY TO YOUR NEXT ADVENTURE PREPARE FOR YOUR NEXT ROAD TRIP WITH THESE GREAT ACCESSORIES

Y

ou’ve got the caravan or motorhome ready and now it’s time to make it a home from home with useful and stylish accessories.

Extend your space

No matter how spacious your caravan, there’s always going to be the need for a bit more room. Rain or shine, a gazebo is a great way to stay comfortable. It’ll offer shelter if it rains and sun protection if it’s gloriously hot. The Urban Escape Event Shelter has two sides and offers 50+ UPF, which means it filters out up to 98 per cent of UV rays. After a long day of exploring,

you’ll probably want to sit back and relax. The Urban Escape Folding Chair will provide comfort with its double-layered padding and a built-in insulated cup holder in the armrest.

Home conveniences

Now, more than ever, electricity is a necessity. While your motorhome or caravan might have a power hookup, it’s worth packing an additional Halfords Triple Mains Kit, which is protected by an RCD and is splashproof. Right now it’s down to just £30 (a saving of £20). This is a really useful accessory if your

party is using all the mod-cons. Wherever you are, you’ll need to keep your battery level topped up and the Halfords Solar Battery Maintainer 6W is a clean, green energy solution. It’s ideal for maintaining 12v batteries in cars, and ideal if you’re at a festival.

Finding your way

The Garmin Camper 770 LMT-D Sat Nav is a specialised sat nav with a large 6.95-inch touch screen and camper-specific features, including custom routing for the size of your vehicle.
