Chain falling off? Gears making a clicking noise or not changing sweetly?

Pop down to the Bike Kitchen at the Scout Hall (behind the Town Council building) on Saturday 21st September at 3:00pm and we'll show you the 3 simple adjustments that will give you crisp, reliable gear changes every time. And we'll give you a slice of famous bike kitchen cake.

If there's time we'll also show you how to clean you chain for long life and how to lube your bike.

Wivenhoe Bike Kitchen is a DIY workshop which aims to teach you how to look after your bicycle. It's suitable for everyone from beginners up. Bring your own bike.

email hello[@]transitionwivenhoe.org.uk for details and to let us know how much cake to bake.

Bike Kitchen 8/9/2013 ~ Brakes

Brakes are good. Probably the most important part of the bike, assuming you want to stop before the river at the bottom of the High Street hill and generally avoid crashes.

Wivenhoe Bike Kitchen is doing brakes this Sunday (8/9/2013). How to check that they're safe and easy tweaks to keep your brakes working as best they can.

As ever there'll be cake, tools and spare parts available. Bring your own bike.


Wivenhoe Bike Kitchen is back in the newly refurbed Scout Hall (behind the Town Council Building), Sunday 8th September, 3pm - 5pm. It's free, just turn up.
