Our next Community Bikefix is at Peter`s Village Co-op.

Saturday 8th June, 10.30am till 1.30pm at Peter`s Village Co-op, Unit 1, Peters Village Centre, Wouldham, Rochester ME1 3AP

If you`re bike is in need of some love, then our #Bikefix is a “triage” service: fixing minor issues and checking to make sure bikes are safe and road worthy. The service is performed by trained and skilled bike mechanics. The majority of bike ailments can be fixed on the spot, meaning you can attend these events in the knowledge you’ll probably be able to ride away on a bike that feels as good as new!

It`s all funded by @WeAreCyclingUK #BigBikeRevival so there is no cost, apart from maybe a small charge for parts if they are required.

There are an increasing number of countries that are seizing upon the benefits of cycling...this article is about India. Similar findings to barriers towards cycling...speeding cars, heavy traffic, poorly maintained roads...sound familiar?

The benefits listed in the article are vast, here`s a quote from the article

`Cycling offers an all-encompassing spectrum of benefits, enhancing cardiovascular fitness, muscle strength, and joint flexibility, while also managing weight. It is also a potent stress reliever, elevating mood, fostering mental clarity, improving sleep quality, and boosting self-esteem for overall well-being. The emergence of group cycling has paved the way towards vibrant community building, enabling people to thrive socially and multiply their potential in numerous ways.`
