Since it goes dark earlier in the evenings it may be worth thinking about bike lights and reflectives.
To save those frustrating times fixing your bike at the roadside it might also be worth getting your bike 'winter ready'. The list below may be helpful
  1. Get your bike serviced for winter, or learn how to service it yourself and save money.
  2. Check your lights (Be safe, be seen!). Recharge/replace batteries the day before
  3. Check your tyres for slow punctures and wear (the day before a ride is better than the morning of the ride)
  4. Check your brakes 'Important!'
  5. Keep your bike clean. A quick 15 minute wash each week will keep your servicing and parts costs down. Keeping your chain clean will also save you a fortune rather than wearing out your cassette and chainrings.
    This is also a really good time to check your tyres for thorns
  6. Take extra food on a ride if it looks like a long one (if you are unsure ask the ride leader).

We are a cycle touring club based in the St Helens and Warrington area but covering other areas such as Runcorn, Frodsham, Widnes, Lymm and Newton.

If you're looking for a cycling club and would enjoy sociable cycle rides on quiet roads please come and join us. Our rides are easy paced, and we try to keep away from busy roads and traffic.

Currently we run two cycle rides per week, one on Wednesday (short day ride), and one on Sunday (full day ride). The starting points, and distances of these rides vary so please check the Events Calendar.

If you decide to ride with us - you can turn up on the day, or you can get in touch using the contact page.
