St Albans Cycle Campaign is holding a free meeting to help cyclists be safe during winter.

The meeting promises lessons on how to maintain a bike and get it ready for the cold months.

Attendees will also learn road skills and how to keep warm and dry while out on a ride.

Neil Watts of Addiktion Cycles will be demonstrating how to prepare a bike, riding techniques, and how to choose suitable clothing, food, drink, and lights.

Members of the campaign will also give an update on their work in the St Albans district, which has included a public meeting on local rights-of-way and an electric bike demonstration.

The meeting is free to attend and is being held at Methodist Church Hall, Marlborough Road, St Albans on Wednesday, November 22 at 7.30pm.
