Bike Kitchen hots up!

Yesterday's bank hol session was busy mostly showing people how to fix gearing problems and slipped chains.
As well as every Monday in May, there'll be extra drop in sessions on Sundays 11th and 25th between 2 and 5pm.
Sarah and Greg learn how to fix a new cable to the front derailleur cage, ready for doing the Tour de Tendring next weekend, good luck both of you.

Donations for this service help with our rent and other costs.
Bike Kitchen is open to everyone! We're at the junction of The Folly and St John's Rd.

BK is run entirely by volunteers :)

Years of Living Dangerously

Obviously I'm pretty dissapointed that Harrison Ford has forgotten his hat, but otherwise Years of Living Dangerously (US TV meets climate change) is surprisingly good. Also just surprising. I'm feeling pretty lucky that Wivenhoe has escaped effects from climate change so far... It seems others haven't been so fortunate.
