Chris Boardman hopes to find new ownership for the Boardman Performance Centre after Halfords announced its closure alongside bike shop chain Cycle Republic last week.

The 18,000sqft centre was only completed in 2018 and includes a purpose-built cycling wind-tunnel as well as facilities for bike-fitting and physical testing.

Boardman wrote in an online post: “Some of you might have heard the news today. So thought I’d put my thoughts down here.”

“Whilst I’m obviously disappointed the Performance Centre isn’t going to form part of our strategy going forward, I do understand the immense pressure Halfords, along with other retailers, is under right now.
