Taking care of your bike is important, if it doesn't work you won't ride it. That is why this month, CTC's Big Bike Revival is encouraging people to take their bikes out of their sheds and get them back in action. Follow our tips to see how to keep your bike in good working order.
1. Little and often is good
Give your bike a little TLC. A regular check-over and a squirt of oil helps to keep problems at bay.
2. Just ride your bike
Riding your bike gets all the moving parts working and can delay and reduce problems.
3. Learn the simple check – it’s as simple as A B C
A is for air – keep the tyres pumped up and check the wheels go round unimpeded. If they don’t, look for brakes or mudguards rubbing or a possible sideways wobble of the wheel.
