The Cycle Show comes to the NEC Exhibition Centre, Birmingham this September from Friday 28th – Sunday 30th September 2018, and I have two family tickets for you to win!
The UK’s biggest national cycling showcase is a must for cycling fans and families to get out and try riding a bike. There is loads on offer for the kids to try out. From BMXing with the UK’s top ranked BMX pro and Flatland Champion Lee Musselwhite, to testing your skills on the two dedicated free-to-ride kids test tracks.
When riding a bicycle, your safety is of the utmost importance. When you’re on a bicycle, you have very little protection against other vehicles on the road and you are vastly outnumbered. While your defensive driving skills are imperative when riding a bicycle in an urban area, sometimes an accident can happen despite your best intentions.
If you are involved in an accident as a bicyclist, it’s important to remember the following steps to make sure that your legal rights are protected when a driver hits you while biking.
With Spring on the way, soon I hope! It will be time to get back on the bikes and go out exploring the gorgeous Cornish countryside. One thing I have never thought of having was a bicycle first aid kit. With so many cars on the roads I believe it’s much safer to go off-road on the bikes. But it is inevitable that everyone will need to ride on the road at some point.
SJ Works got in contact with me a few weeks back asking if I would like to have a look at their bicycle first aid kit. I thought this would be a good time to get prepared for the sunnier, warmer weather that should be arriving shortly.
