Newcastle Cyclists

…..Have a bike puncture and therefore the bike is collecting dust in the shed because you don’t know where to start? Ever thought the drive into work is stop start stop start? Fancy cycling but feel there are barriers?

As a fellow colleague named Kian! I have cycled to and from school to work, and I left my car on the drive its saved me a fortune and saved my waistline too!

CSSC have very kindly contributed some funds for bike equipment so I can from the end of March 2023 I will be running bike sessions on simple bike repair and general maintenance of your bike.

The first will be a walk through the bike. It’s a good chance to socialise with other fellow people thinking of cycling to work or just thinking about their fitness and health.
