Looking after your bike is an important part of staying safe as a cyclist.
Whilst bikes should be checked and serviced regularly by a professional, there are a number of regular checks that you can carry out yourself to make sure that your bike is safe to ride.
It’s important to carry out basic maintenance checks before each journey. Being familiar with the mechanisms and condition of your bike will help you in case you encounter a problem whilst out cycling.
