With the clocks going back this weekend now is the time to make sure you and your bike are prepared for winter. First thing to check is that you have a set of working lights. If not, we have a selection of front and rear lights to ensure you can see and be seen.
Over the past two months we’ve been testing what we believe to be the best affordable light we can get to illuminate your way in and around Witney and West Oxfordshire – the Union rechargeable LED headlight.
Our wish list:
The Union Rechargeable LED Headlight:
To extend the battery life we recommend using the 50% setting when that’s sufficient and not recharging until the red warning LED comes on.
Get ’em while stocks last!
Health Warning: As well as the 100% and 50% settings there is also a flash setting which we don’t recommend you use unless you’re trying to attract the attention of a mountain rescue crew. With more people cycling, flashing lights will become increasingly more iritating to other cyclists and can cause problems for some people with conditions such as autism.
This is a thank you report for all the people who supported us over the last year. With your help we have moved into, and set up, our workshop; and launched a full programme of activities. For a brief overview of the year read on.
As part of the Big Bike Revival we are running free DIY workshop throughout June on Saturday mornings 9.30am – 12.30pm. If you would like to fix your bike but think you need a helping hand, you can use our stands and get help from expert mechanics and friendly volunteers. You will just have to pay for any parts that you use. Please book in by email stating which date and time you would like to come along, and what you would like to fix.
Sessions will be on 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd and 29th June from 9.30am – 12.30pm.
All our latest festive news here. Christmas opening, last minute presents, new year courses and opportunities.
We are moving to our new workshop on 18th August. It is really exciting, and quite daunting. Here is 152b Corn Street, a place soon to be transformed into a fully accessible workshop. For the rest of August we will just be open on Saturdays from 10am – 2pm. New opening hours will start mid September.
