SUMMER DR BIKE
Wednesday 26 April
5pm-8pm outside James Clerk Maxwell Building, 57 Waterloo
Road; free
Bring your bike to Lambeth's team of professional mechanics
who will look it over for free and check tyres, brakes,
gears and its general roadworthiness. If your bike has an
issue that cannot be rectified in 15 minutes they will
advise you on what is wrong so you can take it to a bike
shop well-informed. The police will be at the events marking
bikes and adding details to BikeRegister.com. This service
will deter theft and in the event your bike is stolen, will
ensure that your details are on a nationwide database so it
is much more likely to be returned to you if recovered.
Friendly drivers and professional cycle instructors will
show you how to effectively road share with big vehicles.
You will have the opportunity to come and sit in the cab of
an HGV and see blind spots and the view the drivers have for
yourself.
