Get Your Bike Ready for Winter

With climate change perhaps leading to more severe winters in Chester, it is more important than ever to ensure that you and your bike are ready for winter cycling.  Snow and ice create particular hazards for those on two wheels.  It is incredible how quickly a bike can slip out from underneath a rider on an icy road.

However, winter weather is no excuse to pack away the bike for the season.  With the right preparation and clothing, cycling can be a pleasurable year-round activity!   Follow the tips in the handy PDF guide below to get yourself and your bike ready for the winter.

  1. I have long been a believer of Sharing the Cycle ways with dog walkers but over the last 12 months I have seen increasing evidence of Dog Owners just dumping their Doggy Bags of Poo, rather than putting them in the Bins provided. Sometimes I have seen these bags hanging in the trees and in which case they are not only unsightly but they do not Bio Degrade! What is the answer? Do we ask the Council to provide more Bins or make the Dog Owners more aware of their responsibility.
