Hatching a plan to get away this Easter? Or perhaps you’ve caught wind (or not) of the 60 days of sunshine forecast in May and are looking to make the best of the nice weather?

Whether you’re gearing up for an action-packed countryside bike ride or an epic car trip to the coast, it’s important to plan ahead and be ready for the unexpected. After all, as Benjamin Franklin once said, “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.”

With this in mind, we’ve put our heads together and compiled a cracking list of kit every explorer requires to start their next spring adventure this Easter.

Never get lost with a sat nav from Halfords

While using your smartphone may seem like an obvious option, you don’t want to receive a £200 fine and six points on your license for using it while you drive. (And not to mention all the data you’ll use.)

Invest in a sat nav from Halfords and you can avoid any unwanted fines/bills, plus take advantage of our Easter 20% discount on selected lines. We highly recommend the TomTom Start 42 Sat Nav. It’s not only our customers’ favourite, but it features Western Europe Maps, so you can take your car adventures to France and beyond. Oh là là!

Set the wheels in motion with a Halfords adult bike

Whether you’re an avid cycling enthusiast, or just want to ‘tyre’ the kids out this Easter, embarking on a long bike ride requires the right equipment.

For road biking, our Boardman Road Team Carbon Bike not only rides like a dream, but looks ultra slick. Alternatively, for a leisurely cycle, our blue Carrera Sulcata Mens Mountain Bike is brand new and has a cool 30% discount for you to take advantage of this Easter.

Take your bike to new places with a bike rack

Off to Center Parcs this Easter or to a different part of the country? Then don’t forget your bike.

Unless you have a folding bike, you’ll need a cycle rack from Halfords.

The Thule ProRide 598 Roof Mounted Bike Rack is the perfect option if you want reliability and an affordable price.

The good news is that no tools are required to assemble it. Plus its uniquely designed frame holder and wheel tray make it easy to safely secure your bike to the roof of the car.

Record every adventure with a GoPro

Relive every moment of your next spring adventure with the GoPro Hero5 Black Camera. With Stunning 4K30 video and 12MP photos in Single, Burst and Time Lapse modes, you can capture every moment in high-quality.

The voice control feature adds a level of ease, while the waterproof design means you can take your adventure to new depths.
