While the weather is still mild and we have had some bright sunny days, autumn is a time that brings seasonal hazards to cyclists. Find out some top tips from Sustrans on how to winterproof your bike and ride, plus where to report the build-up of slippery leaves, water filled potholes and other hazards on your regular cycle route.

This month we talk to Keeley Ritchie about how she and her daughter benefited from the Bikeability level 1 & 2 combined sessions that took place this October half term.

We also share an important educational video highlighting why cyclists may cycle in the middle of the road and the important role of driving instructors in teaching the next generation of drivers that everyone has a right to use the road and not just motorists.

Get updates on Wivenhoe and Colchester’s Bike Kitchens offers and opening hours.
