Get Winter Ready

Get winter ready

With winter fast approaching, it’s important to stay safe and visible while walking and cycling - that’s why we’ve put together a range of events to prepare you for the darker nights and cold weather.

Read on for details of what we’ve got planned and check out the calendar at the bottom of the page for dates, times and venues.

Puncture Parties

Our experienced Cycle Leaders will provide you with demonstrations, guidance and support to ensure you feel confident changing an inner tube, fixing a puncture or dealing with common roadside repairs. You can bring your bike along to practice too!

These are drop-in sessions so feel free to come along at your convenience during the stated timeslots.

Get Winter Ready Guided Rides

Join our qualified Cycle Leaders for various Winter themed rides. Our expert instructors will be on hand prior to the ride to offer advice and guidance on safe cycling during the Winter months, how to maintain your bike in cold/wet weather and how to stay visible when cycling in the dark.

Dr Bike Drop Ins

Free bike checks, basic repairs, and advice on safe cycling during the winter months. No need to book, just come along! Plus, we're giving away FREE LED bike lights to keep you safe in the dark!

Guided Winter Walks

Join our Walking Activators for various walks utilising the new Bee Network and connecting routes to support and encourage safe walking during the Winter months. Everyone that attends will receive a FREE LED torch.
