SAFETY BRIEFING.

  • Wear a helmet. Despite recent advances in medical science, brains still cannot be mended nor replaced.
  • Wear gloves or mitts. Hands often hit the ground first. Cuts and grazes invite infection and a hospital visit.
  • Wear eye protection, it only takes a twig or thorn to lose an eye. Crud catchers are a good idea in mucky weather.
  • When downhilling, for your own protection, allow plenty of space behind the rider in front.
  • Bring a bare minimum emergency tool kit and a spare inner tube.
  • Breakdowns are a bore. Plan not to have any by ensuring your bike is in perfect working order.
  • Punctures are also tedious. You can minimise them by fitting latex tubes, slime tubes or running tubeless tyres.

Learn Wheel Building in Cambridge - a great Christmas present idea!

I will be running four Wheel Building Workshops in Cambridge during 2020 (dates on website). It makes a great Christmas present for anyone who is a keen cyclist, or interested in cycle maintenance and repair.

This is a well-established intensive 1-day practical course where you learn how to build strong and durable bicycle wheels in a controlled, supportive environment. Group size is kept deliberately small to ensure a high student-teacher ratio. All equipment is provided, but you can also bring your own parts to build if you want to.

For more information and enrolment details please visit the website: http://www.cambridgewheelbuilding.co.uk/
