Cycle pit stop - this Thursday

There's a free cycle pit stop organised by the Council happening tomorrow (Thurs 28th July) from 4-7pm at the Palatine Road/Wordsworth Road junction next to Butterfield Green.

You can get a free bicycle health check and expert advice on maintenance, cycle routes, cycling safely, how to keep cycling through the winter and bicycle security.

You can make your bike last longer by checking it regularly. Regular checks are simple, low cost and keep your bike in a roadworthy condition to prevent unexpected and potentially dangerous incidents.

Here are some tips, and links to local services that can help you:

  • Check your brakes, tyres, lights and steering are in good working order.
  • Make sure your bike is the right size for you.
  • Keep your bike chain well oiled to ensure smooth gear changes. A squeaky chain is a sure sign that oil is needed.
  • More tips are on the London Cycling Campaign website
