Go to google.co.uk and look up couriers and international shipping companies; contact several for quotes; get back up off floor after looking at the bill. Once you have chosen a courier company, contact Halfords explaining that the bike will be picked up by courier and confirm details by email.
Btw - if you're buying this bike based on rave reviews in the cycling press, that's maybe not such a good idea. Advertising and PR
budgets have a huge effect on reviews of anything in my experience, plus most bike journalists are idiots. Before going to that much trouble I'd want to find someone reasonably experienced who has the bike and likes it a lot.
Other possibility: some smaller UK bike stores are able to order Halfords bikes and assemble them, I believe. You could maybe mail a couple and see if they will help.
