Icy weather sees bike sales freeze

Freezing weather sent bicycle sales tumbling at Halfords but boosted sales of de-icer and screenwash, allowing the retailer to maintain positive momentum for the year.

The car parts and leisure firm posted like-for-like sales growth of 0.4% in the 11 weeks to the end of March, despite bike sales falling by 8.8% during this period.
