Win a folding bike

10th June 2005 at 01:00
To celebrate National Bike Week, we've teamed up with Dahon, the world's leading manufacturer of folding bikes, to give you the chance to win one of their highly desirable two-wheelers, worth pound;500.

The Helios P8 weighs just over 10kg thanks to its ultralight aluminium frame, and can be folded up in just 15 seconds, making it perfect for commuting. Now you can leave the car at home, and take the bike to work! Not only is it light, speedy and extremely portable, the Helios P8 boasts eight-speed Shimano gears, Truvativ cranks, Schwalbe marathon slick tyres with Kevlar anti-puncture protection, plus the Magnetix clip system to keep your bike neatly folded when you're not using it.
