But I see Halfords staff from the same clic as Sainburys home delivery drivers, you know the type.
Poor bloke no one would expect that, and no I wouldn't dream in a million years that I would need my lid.

What type, out of interest?

Might explain why the Halfords I visited yesterday had a 'please do not cycle into the store' (or similar) notice on the entry doors?

In the days (long past!) when I mastered the ability to ride a unicycle, I once took it in to work - main reason: to 'show off' :oops: - and rode a few circuits around the factory floor to prove it. I was told off in no uncertain terms! And rightly so - I was endangering myself and fellow-workers... :(

What are they going to do with the indoor racetrack flooring on the kiddies section in some stores? If they can't ride in store then having to explain the cycling test track isn't for test riding bikes to youngsters will be fun for parents.

Although I've taken our son for loads of Halfords test rides. We use them to test whether he's really ready for the next bike size up or not. So he's often riding a bike that's top big for him on a Halfords shopfloor. Been doing that since his first balance bike about 2 years old. Helmet less and no accidents.

Was it operator error? Sorry to sound heartless, I'm not, but looking at this statistically how high is the incident rate of such accidents in Halfords stores? Widen that out to all bike stores large enough to ride in? If that's the only such accident then what conclusions can be drawn? My first conclusion is they did not look after the guy right after his accident. Head injury in store and no ambulance called? Or at the very least no first aider strongly recommending he goes to A&E or gp for check up. Negligence is letting someone with a head injury leave the store when you have no idea whether they got knocked out or have signs of concussion. Is that not halford's big error here?
