Headwater hosts cycling surgery

8th June 2009 Print

On the 23rd and 24th June 2009, holiday operator Headwater will be holding a free ‘cycling surgery’ at the Cheshire County Show. At present it is normal practice to have an annual check up at the doctors, Headwater are taking it one step further and asking you to treat your bicycle the same way as you treat your body.

There is no excuse not to fish that bike out of the back of the shed and get it back on the road, with the help of Headwater’s bike doctors.

Catherine Crone, Managing Director of Headwater says “Cycling improves your health and if it is used as an alternative form of transport, it will reduce carbon emissions too. Cycling in the summer is a fantastic way to get around and to see the world from a vantage point unobtainable from four wheels. Cycling holidays continue to grow in popularity and it is good to see Boris Johnson and double Olympic Gold medalist James Cracknell launch London’s ‘Summer of Cycling’ last week testifying to this growing market”.

On the 23rd and 24th June 2009, Headwater’s ‘Bike Doctors’ will be holding a free surgery at the Cheshire County Show to deal with all your bicycle needs. Whether it’s oiling the gears, testing the brakes, fixing a puncture, or giving it a general once over, Headwater are confident that their doctors are fit for the challenge.

Bring your bike to the Cheshire Country Show on Tuesday 23rd June and Wednesday 24th June, 8am-6pm at the County Showground, Tabley, Knutsford, WA16 0HJ. Make tracks to the Headwater area for a free check-up.
